Sunday Talk: Raja Yoga of Lord Jesus Christ, with Br. Shankara

 ~ Join via Zoom at https://tinyurl.com/y7veshzt ~

On Sunday morning, Dec. 19th at 11am, Br. Shankara will give a talk on Raja Yoga of Lord Jesus Christ. Join us online (no in-person activities at this time) and participate in the discussion!

December is a month for study of Raja Yoga, a spiritual path often called the yoga of meditation. As a raja yogi, you use ancient, proven spiritual techniques to calm your body, quiet your mind, and gain control of your attention. 

Regular daily practice of Raja Yoga increases your ability to concentrate, and may lead to meditation. This can unite you with the Divine Presence, the source of your being, and free you from the cycle of rebirth and death. As spoken of by the raja yogi, the state of complete liberation from the gunas’ influence is called kaivalya — independence.

Clearly, Jesus was a raja yogi. He used many of the powers described in Chapter 3 of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras:  Among other “miracles,” he healed the lame and the blind; he raised people from the dead; he fed a large crowd with just a few fish and bits of bread; and, he disappeared (became invisible) at will.

Jesus also taught what we call Raja Yoga to his followers. On Sunday morning we will read and discuss examples of these teachings from the New Testament Gospels, as well as the Gospel of the Beloved Companion (Mary Magdalene) and the Gospel of Thomas.

Merry Christmas!
