Inner Peace Cannot Be Experienced Without Patience – Parts 1 and 2

Course 102 – For Adults and Teens.

This is both parts of a two-part course (Parts 1 and 2 – full course).

Your restless mind did not become restless overnight. It has taken lifetimes of pursuing limiting desires and the minutia of life for your mind to become agitated and restless. So, it’s going to take a little time to make it quiet.

In spiritual life, there can be no lasting attainment without Patience. This incredibly important spiritual principle is a necessity to master for permanent spiritual transformation. The mind loves the places it frequents the most. Without patience, it is impossible to wean the restless mind on to the experience of inner Peace. 


Resolve Is The Counter Measure To Fear
Parts 1 and 2

Course 103 – For Adults and Teens.

This is both parts of a two-part course (Parts 1 and 2 – full course).

Fear is one of the most debilitating qualities in both spiritual and mundane life. Fear is a great obstacle to permanent spiritual transformation and Liberation and, therefore, must be rooted out. To do so, one must be vigilant in the instruction, practices and methods taught for evicting fear and replacing it with Love, Peace, Harmony and Courage.

In spiritual life, Resolve is an incredibly important quality to cultivate, without which there will always be fear. In this wonderful mini course, Sadguru Kedarji teaches us how to cultivate and nurture Resolve.


How To Recognize and Imbibe
Grace In All Its Forms, Rather
Than Sabotaging Grace. – Parts 1, 2 and 3

Course 104. For Adults.

Parts 1, 2 and 3 of a three-part course are available now (full course).

Grace is that power, that Love that rescues us from the entanglement of worldliness, the noose of the Gunas and the Malas and, like a boat, carries us to the distant shore of Joy, Peace and the Bliss of the inner Self.

Grace is that which frees us from the bondage of ignorance that keeps God concealed from us.


Attachment Brings Suffering
Parts 1, 2 and 3

Course 105 – For Adults.

This is all 3 parts of a three-part course (full course).

A person lives in his/her desires, hopes and fantasies, but who knows what will happen next? Attachment, attraction and aversion cause one to live in a state of constant apprehension and anxiety over the past and the future. Attachment prevents us from being fully present in the moment, and the present moment is the only time that we can experience a change in us that allows for experiencing the Self, the Joy of the true Heart in all its glory.


Limiting Desire and Craving Are The Cause of Greed – Parts 1 & 2

Course 109 – For Adults.

In both parts of this mini course, we examine how limiting desire and craving, borne of the pursuit of comfort, security and reward, spawn greed. This examination also occurs against the backdrop of the study of verses from the Chidakasha Gita of Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganshpuri. There is a discussion of the understandings that allow one to take full responsibility for one’s daily mundane life, without cultivating greed. How to address limiting desire and craving in order to arrest greed, is taught.


The Power of The Practice of Contemplation – Parts 1 & 2

Course 110 – For Adults.

This is both parts of a two-part course (Parts 1 and 2 – full course).

Without knowing how to engage in contemplation of instruction, lessons, utterances and practices offered to you, over a long period of time, Sadhana becomes just a series of unanswered questions, even when the answers are right there in front of you!

In this two-part mini course led by Sadguru Kedarji, we examine the most effective approach to the practice of contemplating the utterances, instruction and methods for engaging Sadhana. This mini course is ripe with the highest understandings of our lineage of Sages, for perfecting the practice of contemplation that always leads to the experience of the Bliss of the Self, and the inner knowing necessary to steadily advance in Sadhana.


How To Keep The Best Inner and Outer Company – Parts 1 & 2

Course 111 – For Adults.

This is both parts of a two-part course (Parts 1 and 2 – full course).

By company we rise and by company we fall. It takes only one drop of sour curd to spoil an entire vat of milk. Similarly, the inner and outer company we choose to keep has an immediate and powerful impact on the direction our Sadhana takes – and whether or not we ever fulfill our intention for permanent spiritual transformation and Liberation in each moment.

In this two-part mini course led by Sadguru Kedarji, we examine all that is necessary to keep the best inner and outer company that continually allows us to imbibe Grace, rather than sabotaging it. How to go about changing the company we keep is also be addressed, along with how to make the shift away from dependence on and the influence of friends, loved ones and associates who may never take an interest in the direction we have decided to go, to better ourselves.


How To Properly Understand and Engage The Kriya Process – Parts 1 & 2

Course 112 – For Adults.

This is both parts of a two-part course (Parts 1 and 2 – full course).

Your perfection is already with you. You are the Self. You are the Supreme Principle. You are all great beings. For ages you have concealed this fact from yourself by pulling a veil down over your Heart. You have concealed your true nature from yourself by holding the false notion that you are just a person, an individual, just the body, the senses and the mind, just ordinary or delightfully weird.

In truth, there is nothing to attain. Spiritual life is not about giving you anything that you don’t already have. It’s about burning away all that you are not. In this two-part mini course led by Sadguru Kedarji, the path of Sadhana, also known as the Kriya Process, is elucidated in great detail. The instruction and methods for facing yourself in Sadhana are taught by Kedarji. This is the means of destroying all the karmic tendencies that are the obstacles to your permanent spiritual transformation and ultimate Liberation.


How To Cultivate A Strong
Experience of Bhakti – Parts 1 & 2

Course 113 – For Adults.

This is both parts of a two-part course (Parts 1 and 2 – full course).

Bhakti, the devotion and mad longing for God, the living Sadguru and that Guru’s state, is a spiritual principle that every sage of our lineage speaks about as being an absolute necessity for spiritual transformation and Liberation. Without Bhakti, God cannot be experienced, Love cannot be properly understood and the attachment, attraction and aversion (the ego idea) cannot be destroyed. Bhakti is so essential to permanent spiritual transformation that the Sages of steady wisdom all program it as the highest, the greatest of all spiritual attributes.

There is no Shanti (peace) without Bhakti. With the right leadership and practice, this Devotion, this Longing can be cultivated and fully realized.

In this two-part mini course led by Sadguru Kedarji, all of the instruction and methods necessary to fully cultivate and protect your Bhakti (including the steps to cultivate Viveka and Vairagya) will be taught.


Course 114 – For Adults.

How To Conquer Fear With Love
Parts 1 and 2

Fear is an ego expression that kills joy, peace and happiness. It is the primary cause of a restless mind that has become a prisoner of the senses, in the play of the Gunas and the Malas. There is only one antidote, one weapon that can root out and destroy fear. And that is Love. This Supreme Love is without conditions and is the answer to rooting out fear forever.

In this mini course, Sadguru Kedarji continues to lead us through…..


Course 116 – For Adults.

How To Overcome Obstacles
In Your Sadhana, Parts 1 & 2

Sadhana, the Shaktipat Kriya Process, is a journey to getting rid of all that you are not. This journey requires patience, discipline and vigilance in following and applying the instruction of the Guru. In Sadhana, it is quite common for us to get stuck, to hit a wall where it appears that we are experiencing the same and new blocks to steady progress, over and over again. It can feel like taking one step forward and two steps back as we navigate the rough waters of our Karmas, while rooting out of the karmic obstacles to our Liberation.

To be vigilant in Sadhana is to attain…


Course 117 – For Adults.

How To Become A Worthy Disciple

To rid oneself of the horrible play of the impurities that are the pillars of egoism, Discipleship is a necessity. All scriptures, sacred texts, utterances in online videos, articles podcasts and in books can be interpreted in any way one pleases. But you cannot interpret the living Sadguru. One may even have a strong understanding of the steps that must be taken to free oneself from the prison of the restless mind and the senses, but there are pitfalls in the journey to freedom from these that you cannot know or avoid without the bond of power with the Guru. Therefore, Discipleship is the means to salvation.

“A child cannot be born without a father and a mother. Clothes cannot be washed without water. There can be no horseman without a horse. So, without a Master, none can reach the court of the Lord.” ~ The Poet Saint Kabir

In this mini course led by Sadguru Kedarji, we examine…


Course 118 – For Adults.

The Hidden Pitfalls of Anger
and How To Overcome Them

What is the root cause of anger? What is the difference between being angry and playing at being angry? When we get stuck in anger, our minds become restless and we sink into anxiety and frustration. We lose our ability of discernment (Viveka) and fall into the rut of disclarity, judgment, fault-finding and reactive thinking and behavior. Therefore, anger is a disease…
