MTT: Mystical Terminology

Beginning September 17, 2020


Unlock the mystery hidden in the Sanskrit words, each with multiple layers of meaning.  As you understand the many names of the One Reality, you break free of old, limited ways of thinking, to expand your mind and being into the Consciousness that you are.

This course is for certified Svaroopa® Vidya Meditation teachers only.  A similar course, open to everyone begins soon:  Yoga’s Mystical Formulae.

As a meditation teacher, you must explain the unexplainable, name the unnameable and describe the indescribable.  Sanskrit does this, but who speaks Sanskrit?  So you have to do it in English, which means you need to understand it even more deeply.  This training gives you a deeper understanding of the highly technical terminology of the Kashmiri Shaivite system.  The power of these words means that, when you understand them, you also experience them. 

Then you learn to speak from your experience in your DTS (Develop Your Teaching Skills) program.  Each week, you have access to a recording of Gurudevi’s discourse while you prepare your own description of the indescribable.  Then you practice in an online meeting with your Mentor and co-Mentees.  Putting it in your own words deepens your understanding and experience more fully, again expanding your inner experience.  All of this works together to make you a better meditation teacher, which is the purpose of this training.
