BHAKTI RETREAT
With Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya
Location: EastSide Yoga

Yoga is the world’s preeminent art and science of meaningful self-improvement and profound spiritual unfoldment. The transformative healing power of Yoga can be experienced by anyone almost immediately – explaining why over 20 million Americans are devoted to this ancient spiritual path!

Of all forms of Yoga, it is Bhakti Yoga – the Yoga of Devotional Consciousness – that especially represents the most beautiful jewel upon the divine crown of Yoga! Most great yogis and sages of the past have agreed that Bhakti Yoga represents the very heart and soul of all Yoga practice. It is, indeed, the Yoga of the heart. Through Bhakti Yoga, we learn to experience the most vivid spiritual states firsthand. We learn to experience the sweet nectar of love as we have never believed possible. We melt in the satisfying ecstasy of devotional union with the Divine. We taste deeply of the ocean of bliss.

Buddhism, Emptiness and Fulfillment

With Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya

The contemporary Buddhist concept of emptiness (shunyata) only describes half of the path to spiritual liberation (nirvana). Once we have emptied ourselves of that which is not real, then we have to embrace that which is real in the absolute sense. Fully realizing atman, or our eternal spiritual self, is the actual goal of the Buddha's original teachings. This is the subject of this short video on the teachings of Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya.
