Prayag – Sacred Dip in Vedanta 2 Day Residential Retreat

Our lives are a struggle between three different streams – dealing with oneself, dealing with the world and dealing with God. How can there be harmony in these three? Is a confluence possible? The confluence of these three is the vision of reality.

Much like one has a sacred dip in the waters of Prayag which is the confluence of the three sacred rivers – Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati, one can have a dip in the sacred waters of the unchanging reality of all three – oneself, world and Ishvara through Vedanta.

How best to do this? Vedanta that reveals you were always free also reveals the method, which is, to go to a teacher who is from the sampradaya. The truth has to be pointed out, directly and immediately, where you have an opportunity for samvaada, a dialogue that allows for a flow of meaning. There cannot be scope for doubt, vagueness or error.

Although we have learnt to manage our online Zoom fatigue it is time to press the ‘refresh’ button and ‘re’treat ourselves for the weekend. Drawing from the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads, the retreat will reveal and revel in the reality that is YOU, the timeless reality of oneself, the world and Ishvara.

The Vedanta retreat by Swamini Brahmaprajnananda will serve as an introduction to the vision of Vedanta and how to live this vision of oneness. The retreat will mirror the schedule of a traditional gurukulam with puja, practice of asana/ pranayama, meditation, classes, self- reflection, discussions and quiet time.
