Retreat: Tradition of the Himalayan Sages I

At Poulstone Court Retreat Centre

Starts 2pm, Friday the 30 August 2019 and ends Sunday, 1 September 2019 at 4pm

With Rajesh Rai & Divya Dhasmana

Contact rajesh@poulstone.com / divya@poulstone.com

What is the Himalayan Tradition is a question many ask. This is not surprising as it is a broad tradition which incorporates several philosophies that sometimes appear to contradict each other.

Panditji in his “The Himalayan Masters’ deals with this question by explaining the philosophies of some of the Masters, telling their stories, their context and at the core of it, the seminal message.

This retreat will unfold the gift of three Masters through discussion, practice, great food and great company at Poulstone Court Retreat Centre.

This retreat will also turn the European HI Chakra through

a) 48 hr continuous akhanda meditation practice for meditate for unity 2019 in support of year long meditation at Poulstone and

b) A 33 Sri Sukta recitation with a concluding Sri Sukta havan practice and guided meditation practices.

The cost of the weekend will be at a subsidised rate of £108 (which includes VAT). This will include full board and lodgings.

Core text will be Pandit Rajmani Tigunait’s “The Himalayan Masters”

Swami Rama in his introduction to Pandit Rajmani Tigunait’s The Himalayan Masters says

“The tradition of the Himalayan Sages is an unbroken chain that extends for thousands of years, a living tradition that still exists totally undisturbed by the passage of time. The tradition is not concerned with teachings that apply only to a particular era of history or geographical region of the world – its entire emphasis is on the experience of the truth which is eternal and universal. To realize this is the highest goal of existence, although at different times and places different terms have been used to describe it.

Even though the history of this ancient tradition remains shrouded in mystery, it is helpful for modern students to understand it and the lineage of sages which have carried on the teachings. But in seeking to study the tradition, students, no matter how sincere, are at a disadvantage. Many of the ancient texts do not exist in translation, and even when they do, their teachings require clarification and interpretation if they are to provide seekers with any practical guidance

… by knowing the systematic yogic methods of penetrating our inner being, it is possible to reach the innermost core of this temple and experience the bliss that lies within. May all who read this important book make progress on their spiritual journey”

With hands on heart and in humility do we bow and offer our pranaams to the masters of the tradition
