Introduction to Siddha Yoga Meditation

  • The Siddha Yoga Ashram in Oakland (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Dear All,

I am delighted to let you know that an Introduction to Siddha Yoga Meditation will be held on Saturday, November 25, at the Siddha Yoga Ashram in Oakland.

Meditation is one of the core spiritual practices on the Siddha Yoga path. Meditation brings out the joyful and positive qualities of the mind, and it makes the mind strong. Siddha Yoga meditation also puts us in touch with the very core of who we are.

This special event will be led by a Siddha Yoga meditation teacher who will guide you in exploring the practice of Siddha Yoga meditation. In this event, especially designed for those new to meditation, you will be guided through each aspect of Siddha Yoga meditation, including posture, breath, and mantra.

Whether you are learning about meditation for the first time or you have an existing meditation practice, this introductory event will help you establish or strengthen your regular meditation practice.

No registration is required. Everyone is welcome.  Please invite your family and friends. Lunch will be available for purchase afterwards in the Amrit Cafe.

Best regards,
Barbara Walter

Mahashivaratri

During the Indian month of Magha, as the moon wanes and illumines the morning sky in its crescent shape, devotees honor the great night of Shiva, Mahashivaratri. It is said that on Mahashivaratri, a single repetition of Shiva’s name and the benefits of worship performed on this night are multiplied a thousandfold.

One of the ways that Siddha Yogis honor Lord Shiva on this holiday is by repeating the mantra Om Namah Shivaya. This sacred mantra of the Siddha Yoga lineage means, “I bow to Shiva, the divine Self within.” Siddha Yogis receive the mantra Om Namah Shivaya from the Guru, and the mantra is infused with the Guru’s grace. As we repeat it, the power of the mantra leads us to the experience of our own inner divinity.

In India, the full moon of the month of Ashada (July-August) is honored as the most auspicious and important of the entire year. This moon's luminous brilliance and perfect form are seen as expressions of the Guru's gift of grace and the attainment of Self-realization. Siddha Yogis focus on the practice of dakshina during this holiday.
