Diverse Paths on The Road to Enlightenment Part 1 of 6

March 22, 2016

Reverend Jaganath Carrera

This unique six-week course is perfect for any student or practitioner of Yoga, from beginner to advanced.

Following the experiences of three great individuals of faith, this course is a practical exploration of the different paths each took to a direct experience with the Absolute.

We will explore the stories of the following individuals as well as become familiar with the sacred texts they appear in. These are wonderful, engaging stories filled with drama, wonder, and wisdom:

  • Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita: The role of doubt, fear, and love in spiritual growth;

  • Nachiketas in the Katha Upanishad: How awareness of the transitory nature of life and courage develop insight and spiritual liberation;

  • Job in the Bible: What suffering, feelings of helplessness, and resistance reveal about ourselves and the Divine.


All three were tested, all three went through periods of confusion . . . and all three had direct encounters with the Eternal, the Absolute. 


What can we learn from them? Inspiring, informative, and at times, even startling, these stories and the texts in which they appear, are full of insights that will inform and inspire your own search for peace, happiness, and knowledge.

The Guru Gita: A Manual for Yoga Apprenticeship - Part 1 of 3

June 14, 2016

Reverend Jaganath Carrera

Just as an unlit candle can only receive light from one that is lit, spiritual wisdom is awakened through a relationship with one who is spiritually enlightened. The above quote comes from the revered classic of sacred wisdom in the East, the Guru Gita or Song of the Guru. Dating from between the 6th and 8th centuries, CE, the Guru Gita presents a message that is both practical and pertinent to today’s world.

The Guru Gita reveals the inner workings of spiritual apprenticeship and presents the guru/disciple relationship as a dynamic path that leads to a fulfilling life as well as Self-realization. As such, the Guru Gita pays homage to the spiritual potential in us all. Its vision of human beings as channels of Divine Compassion reveals the transforming power of spiritual apprenticeship, a path that leads to the end of suffering and to Self-realization. Through powerful meditations, heart-opening visualizations, and soaring imagery, the Guru Gita transports us to a world overflowing with sacred significance, a world where our spiritual awakening is a reality within our reach.

This course is for anyone interested in knowing more about the vital role that apprenticing has played in yoga for over 3,000 years. You need not have a guru to attend or even be looking for one. This program is about the beauty, power, and effectiveness of wisdom being passed on, not by books, but from one human being to another.

Yoga of Star Trek - Part 1 of 3 (Day of The Dove - Season 1 / Disc 2)

Reverend Jaganath Carrera

The ancient cultures had their own myths and stories that relayed deep truths in an entertaining way. Our culture is a melting pot of many different traditions, we are relatively short of American myths, but we do have Star Trek, a groundbreaking series that originally aired for three years (1966 – 1969). Ambitious for its time, a number of top science fiction authors wrote many of the scripts, embedding important message regarding important values that illustrate and are harmonious with the teachings of Yoga.
