Śaktipāta Weekend Intensive

Tantric Sadhana-saktipata

Śaktipāta Weekend Intensive on June 30, 2016 in Berkeley, CA : Free Introductory Presentation: Thursday, June 27, 7-9 pm
The Tantrāloka: The “Light on the Tantras” was written by Abhinavagupta in the 11th century and is considered to be the seminal exposition in Tantric Shaivism. Abhinavagupta described it as a manual for liberation.
The intent of this new program is to contribute to the revival of the teachings of the Tantrāloka in their deepest essence and explore the heart of its timeless written and oral wisdom. Students will learn long-forgotten, powerful meditation techniques, participate in pujas (rituals), and experience a unique program structured as regular immersions complemented by online sessions and lessons.
The Essence of Śaktipāta is the second in a series of Tantric Sādhana intensives based on original translations of the Tantrāloka to be presented by Boris Marjanovic, Ph.D, and Swami Khecaranatha.
