Meeting ID: 442 015 258

You are invited to chant 108 repetitions of the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra with us online. Our intention is to create a sacred space to promote mental, emotional, and physical health on a personal and global level. The program includes 30 minutes of chanting and 30 minutes of social time. Go here https://kashinivas.org/video-conference and click on "Join Zoom" in the event description.

ॐ त्र्यम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम् । उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान्मृ त्योर्मुक्षीय मामृतात् ॥

Om Try-Ambakam Yajaamahe Sugandhim Pusstti-Vardhanam Urvaarukam-Iva Bandhanaan Mrtyor-Mukssiiya Maa-[A]mrtaat ||

The Tryambakum (Mahamrityunjaya) Mantra, from the Rigveda (RV 7.59.12), is said to be beneficial for mental, emotional and physical health, and to be a Moksha mantra which bestows longevity and immortality. While its energy protects and guides the practitioner, the mantra connects one to their deeper and more abiding nature. Repetition of the mantra constitutes Japa, the practice of which develops concentration that leads to a transformation of awareness.

Please attend this event through our online Video Conference Meeting. Go here to register https://kashinivas.org/video-conference.

Swami Atmananda offers a weekly donation-based study group on the philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism using Swami Shankaranada's book, "Consciousness is Everything: The Yoga of Kashmir Shaivism," as well as other scriptural sources. The group will be meeting from 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM at the Kashi Nivas Shiva Meditation Ashram located at 515 Manor Drive, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

We will begin studying and discussing one chapter a week from the book "Consciousness is Everything: The Yoga of Kashmir Shaivism" by Swami Shankaranada. The book is available for purchase from Amazon.com.

Consciousness is the most intimate experience of life, the essence of life itself. Among the many spiritual traditions born and developed in India, one ancient philosophy, Kashmir Shaivism, has explored it completely. Until now Kashmir Shaivism was an esoteric field accessible only to a few scholars and other specialists. Swami Shankarananda, a self-realized spiritual master, presents the wisdom of this powerful tradition in a form that will delight and inspire all spiritual seekers. He explores the teachings in rich detail, elucidating ideas and meditative practices while drawing on a vast canvas of of many great beings, wisdom traditions and personal experience.

Kashmir Shaivism or Trika Shaivism refers to a nondualist tradition of Śaiva-Śakta Tantra which originated sometime after 850 CE. Though this tradition was very influential in Kashmir and is thus often called Kashmir Shaivism, it was actually a pan-Indian movement termed "Trika" by its great proponent Abhinavagupta, which also flourished in Oḍiśā and Mahārāṣṭra. Defining features of the Trika tradition is its idealistic and monistic Pratyabhijnā (Recognition) philosophical system, propounded by Utpaladeva and Abhinavagupta, and the centrality of the three goddesses Parā, Parāparā, and Aparā.

Kashmir Shaivism or Trika Shaivism refers to a nondualist tradition of Śaiva-Śakta Tantra which originated sometime after 850 CE. Though this tradition was very influential in Kashmir and is thus often called Kashmir Shaivism, it was actually a pan-Indian movement termed "Trika" by its great proponent Abhinavagupta, which also flourished in Oḍiśā and Mahārāṣṭra. Defining features of the Trika tradition is its idealistic and monistic Pratyabhijnā (Recognition) philosophical system, propounded by Utpaladeva and Abhinavagupta, and the centrality of the three goddesses Parā, Parāparā, and Aparā.
