In this discourse, Gurudevi takes us on a journey of understanding why we need to have experiences. While our experiences can trigger pleasure, pain or adrenaline, yoga puts us on a path to experience bliss. The purpose of all the yoga practices is to cultivate that inner capacity to experience bliss so you can live in it all the time.
In all yoga traditions, the guru is the one who gives us an inner experience and shifts our state. In Svaroopa® Yoga, the Guru wakens Kundalini, the energy that has become the universe. Gurudevi describes how Kundalini will unravel your contractions and set you free.
A modern-day representative of an ancient tradition, Gurudevi explains the difference between knowing something with your mind and inner knowingness. She talks about how you can discover your inner source of knowing and joy.
Gurudevi expounds on the Truth behind all religious traditions that “There is nowhere that God is not present.” She leads you from the importance of sacred spaces in the world to how you can find sacred space within.
What is a serene and luminous experience? It’s a transcendent moment, beyond time and space, full of peace and bliss. Gurudevi cautions not to become dependent on external circumstances to find such an experience. Instead, look inside. In remembering a serene and luminous experience, you reinstate it. These experiences are memorable because they trigger an inner shift. They deepen you into Consciousness, the Consciousness that you already are.
