    How to Live Well in a Messy World: The Yoga of Action

    Brought to You by Senior Students of Lama Marut

    The CLASSICAL TEXTS AND AUTHENTIC PRACTICES OF EASTERN SPIRITUALITY curriculum offers a progressively unfolding, comprehensive course of study in the wisdom and practical application of Eastern spirituality as it pertains to modern life. 

    The curriculum as a whole is comprised of twelve courses to be taught over two years. When taken together, these stand-alone courses constitute an extensive course of study in the classical scriptures and principal practices of Eastern spirituality. 

    Based on Lama Marut’s original translations and relevant, applicable interpretations of the Sanskrit classics of the Hindu, Buddhist, and Yogic traditions, each course consists of six weekly two-hour interactive online classes, including lecture, discussion, and guided meditation portions. 

    These courses cover a wide range of teachings and practices from an inclusive, comparative, and non-sectarian point of view. They are designed to provide an in-depth, systematic, and coherent foundation and overall framework for any serious spiritual practitioner.

    Module 8 - How to Live Well in a Messy World: The Yoga of Action

    This course will explore the yoga of action as a practice for conducting ourselves in such a way that liberation is possible without giving up worldly activity and relationships.

    Sundays, 14 March - 18 April 2021

    4:30 pm PT (5:30 pm MT/6:30 pm CT/7:30 pm ET)

    2-hour sessions

    Recordings available within 48 hours if you miss a session!

    The second of the three yogas of the Bhagavad Gita, karma yoga, provides the key to freedom not through renunciation of the world but rather while still actively engaged in the world. While we may now be imprisoned in the world of karma, the yoga of action is a practice for conducting ourselves in such a way that liberation is possible without giving up worldly activity and relationships.

    Topics include: “The Necessity of Action,” “The Laws of Karma,” “Karma and the Mental Afflictions,” “Liberation from Karma,” “Action for Its Own Sake,” “Detached Action,” “Selfless Action,” and “Offering Up the Fruits of Action.”

    Benefits of the Course:

    • Learn what the Gita says about debilitating depression and how overcome it
    • Analyze the apparent discrepancy between what you think you should do and what you feel you must do in your life
    • Recognize the “laws of karma” and how they work
    • Discover how to escape from the “laws of karma” and achieve liberation not through renunciation but by means of informed, disciplined, and selfless action without expectation
    • Implement your practice of “karma yoga” in service to others

    Based on selections from the Bhagavad Gita.
