These talks will shed light on the highest summits of Devotion and Wisdom that can be reached by an aspirant for the attainment of Liberation (Moksha). (Approximately 9 hours)
Raja Vidya Raja Guhya Yogah—The Yoga of Royal Knowledge and Royal Secret
There is a royal secret by which one may attain Liberation even in this very life. The secret lies in relinquishing everything to God. A devotee should surrender not only all his actions, but also his innermost thoughts at the Feet of the Lord—this includes not only the positive thoughts, but also the impurities of his heart. This is the secret of spiritual transformation.
Devi Mahatmya or Durga Shaptashati is a portion from the Markandeya Purana written by Sage Vyasa. This unique scripture views God as Mother and presents highly mystical stories depicting the journey of the soul from darkness to Light in three stages: Devi, in the form of Durga, destroys gross impurities urging the aspirant to develop purity of heart. As Laksmi, She brings about the blossoming of divine qualities and frees the mind of distractions. And as Saraswati she destroys ignorance and egoism, leading the soul to the heights of spiritual enlightenment.
