Into the Heart of Devotion
In the yogic tradition, devotion — pure love or bhakti — is the essential heart of spiritual life. Without it, our other practices — be they asanas, meditation, pranayama or philosophy — we may become dry and stale. However with devotion, all practices reach their highest perfection and completion.
Kriya Yoga teacher Swami Atmavidyananda Giri will explore the beauty and practices of devotional yoga in a day-long intensive in Melbourne on 25 April (Anzac Day) 2018.
This intensive is part of our spectacular program of events — A Blaze of Spirituality — to celebrate the inauguration of our Kriya Yoga Ashram by Paramahamsa Prajnanananda. It is open to all — irrespective of your background, level of experience and any specific practice you follow.
Having achieved the state of devotion, one becomes perfect — experiencing divinity, perceiving immortality and always feeling content.
