Series Overview

The intersection of power, fulfillment, and freedom distinguish tantra from other paths of yoga, spirituality, mysticism, and self-discovery. Tantra leads us to where our spiritual aspirations and worldly ambitions are united in a sacred bond. It gives us access to what we are and what we wish to become. It leaves no room for conflict and uncertainty. Put simply, tantra gives us the tools to thrive and shine at every stage of our personal growth. As one of tantra’s cardinal texts, Sri Sukta embodies the best of tantra vidya.

This special offering combines two rare offerings with Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, and is the definitive course to study and practice the Sri Sukta. These programs were specifically architected to be taken in this manner as a progressive experience, culminating in a 80-day practice of Sri Sukta and special extended fire offering to conclude the practice.

Part 1 – Sri Sukta: The Vessel of Tantric Elixir

May 3-26, 2021: 8-part online course
May 28-31, 2021: In-person/Online Hybrid Capstone

This online course is intended to help you digest and assimilate Sri Sukta: The Tantra of Inner Prosperity, and capture the essence of tantric experience hidden between the words and the lines of the sixteen mantras of Sri Sukta. It will help you expand your understanding of mantra, yantra, chakras, kundalini, and the science of sacred fire underpinning all tantric practices. Finally, you will learn how to apply this tantric wisdom not only to accelerate your current practice, but also to awaken your extraordinary strengths and abilities through these extraordinary mantras of Sri Sukta.

Sri Vidya is the most powerful and mysterious among all tantric practices, and Sri Sukta is the heart and soul of Sri Vidya practice. In his commentary on Sri Sukta, Panditji unlocks the secret powers of the mantras of Sri Sukta to a great extent, and yet there are mantric nuances that can only be communicated and, frankly speaking, spiritually transmitted in an environment more intimate than what reading a book can offer. This online course is exactly that intimate environment.

This 4-week online program, culminating in a Memorial Day Weekend capstone retreat (offered in a hybrid in-person and online format), builds on Pandit Tigunait’s book, Sri Sukta: Tantra of Inner Prosperity, augmenting what is passed on by a living tradition and practiced in the inner circle of tantrics.

Course highlights include:
  • An introduction to the science of mantra and the secret of mantric transmission
  • Relationship between mantras, yantras, mandalas, and forces of nature that govern and guide both our inner and outer worlds
  • In-depth study of the sixteen mantras of the Sri Sukta
  • Plenty of opportunity for Q&A, discussions, and digital interactions
  • Dedicated practice sessions with Shiva Tigunait, PhD to learn the Sri Sukta.
    • 2 practicum sessions to learn how to pronounce and recite these mantras.
    • 1 session for those who already know the Sri Sukta, to help refine your recitation.
  • Downloadable audio recordings of the Sri Sukta:
    • Student’s learning version with a word by word, call and response format at a slower pace
    • Full speed version that can be used to follow along during your recitation
    • PDF of the Sri Sukta with Sanskrit and English transliteration
  • This course qualifies you to join the Sri Sukta Sadhana Immersion Level 1, and undertake a unique 80-day practice of Sri Sukta culminating in a capstone experience of havan (sacred fire offering) of 80 recitations of Sri Sukta.
Part 2: Sri Sukta Sadhana Immersion – Stage 1

June 1–August 20, 2021: 80-day At-home Sri Sukta Practice
August 20-22, 2021: In-person/Online Hybrid Capstone

This Sri Sukta Sadhana Immersion (Stage 1) is the doorway to experience what you just learned in the Sri Sukta: The Vessel of Tantric Elixir course. This immersion is in a purely traditional style and follows the methodology that is set in stone after thousands of years of refinement. It will help you build a foundation strong enough to undertake Stage 2 of the Sri Sukta practice, empowering you to embrace the inner joy and prosperity as seen through the eyes of the Sages. It will help you break through the walls that surround the practices labeled as “forbidden tantra.”

80-day At-home Practice:
  • Put your knowledge of Sri Sukta into practice. Begin or deepen your formal practice of Sri Sukta, as a powerful catalyst for your inner growth.
  • The beginning of this 80-day practice begins during the capstone of the Sri Sukta: Vessel of Tantric Elixir program during Memorial Day weekend.
  • 80-day group practice of Sri Sukta (Stage 1), comprising 10 recitations of Sri Sukta daily. Undertake the practice from your home on your own schedule, supported by the collective intention and practice of our fellow practitioners.
  • 3 satsangs with Panditji throughout this 80-day period, for inspiration, spiritual community, and to answer questions which arise as you practice.
In-person/Online Hybrid Capstone Group Practice:
  • This 80-day practice culminates in a special havan comprising 80 recitations of Sri Sukta as we make offerings to the sacred fire.
    • This practice can be done in-person, or online. If you participate online, you will have access to the live-stream video of the havan, so you can join the practice virtually in real-time.
    • The closing capstone weekend will include 2 sessions with Panditji to elaborate on the dynamics of Sri Sukta sadhana, and the nature of our 80-recitation havan as the capstone of our 80-day recitation practice.
    • Lifetime access does not include the 2 havan practices. To honor the sanctity of the invocations and time-bound nature of these group practices, they are only available for the 14-day period following the conclusion of the program.
  • Space for in-person attendance for the opening and closing capstone retreats is highly limited, so book your accommodations now.
  • The Sri Sukta Sadhana Immersion (Stage 1) is a key preparation for future group practices, including the Sri Sukta Sadhana Immersion (Stage 2).
