Upanishads 2013

 

 

"Beauty is something that you can't resist. Joy is something you cannot renounce. Love is something that you can never hide. Sorrow is that which you cannot desire. Truth is what you cannot avoid." – Sri Sri, from Katho Upanishads

What are the Upanishads? They are a peek into infinity; a taste of the indescribable, where a journey begins – into timelessness, into the ever present reality, throwing light on the mysteries of our consciousness and of creation itself. Their deep knowledge comes alive in the presence of Sri Sri. His words enliven their profound wisdom into an experience of revelation and awakening. Attendees walk away with wisdom nestled deep in their hearts, which sustains the experience of grace even after the event.

Each year, Sri Sri unlocks the secrets of one major Upanishad. Only in the United States and only for this brief duration does this opportunity to glimpse infinity exist. And this year, the opportunity is even more special, as participants will learn the powerful new Shakti Kriya directly from Sri Sri himself!

For the deep meditator or the spiritually inquisitive, the Upanishads are a nectar of wisdom that strengthens their spiritual practice. Having glimpsed beyond, the spiritual seeker discovers greater purpose in the journey, eases more effortlessly into meditation and arrives at lasting joy and peace.

Join us this April, at Heavenly Mountain in Boone, which sets the stage for this remarkable, rare journey.

Watch Sri Sri describe the Upanishads
