Vedanta is pinnacle of spiritual wisdom of India, mainly laid down in texts such as Upanishad and Bhagwad Gita. Teachings of Vedanta provide speculative and contemplative space to marinate with the help of yoga into the sky of unbounded awareness of non-dual Reality.
Introductory Lessons in Tantra
Tantra is an all-accepting and life-positive approach to spirituality. It harnesses creative and aesthetical dimensions of our being to raise higher level of consciousness. Tantra also works on energy centers existing in our body known as chakras. Activation of these chakras opens up infinite possibilities of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual being.
It uses the principles and practices of Vedic philosophy and psychology to offers guidance on how to find one’s unique purpose in life that is in harmony with the entire cosmos. It leads the practitioner into self-awareness, helps in tapping and harnessing their own infinite potential, and provides ways on how live an authentic life of overall abundance and fulfillment.
