Swami Sarvapriyananda ~ The Yoga of the Awareness-Self

Saturday, October 2, 2021 @ 8:00am-10:00am (Pacific Time)

The talk will introduce the ancient tradition of Advaita Vedanta. We will take an experiential journey into the very heart of our existence and seek to discover our real self. The talk is designed around meditation techniques drawn from the Upanishads and later Advaita texts.

Before being posted to the VSSC’s Hollywood Temple, Swami served as an acharya (teacher) of the monastic probationers’ training center at Belur Math.
