11am Sunday Talk: Your Karma-Raja Cocktail! with Br. Shankara

On Sunday morning, April 3rd at 11am, Br. Shankara will give a talk entitled Your Karma-Raja Cocktail!

April 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.


Here’s how to make a Karma-Raja Cocktail at home: Distill Chapter 3 of Bhagavad Gita to your desired concentration. Extract the essence of Chapter 1 of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Combine these ingredients to suit your temperament, and in accord with your teacher’s instructions.

It’s just that simple to make a lifetime supply of the Karma-Raja Cocktail. Perhaps you will drink this elixir deeply each day, until your taste for it cannot be satisfied by any other intoxicant! If you do, over time, contentment may become your way of life, and you won’t be able to find any limit to your freedom. You might even become a holy drunkard!

We’ll review and discuss this recipe in more detail on Sunday morning.
