SUNDAY MANTRA LECTURE | 4:30pm – 5:30pm: Initiation to the Planetary Mantras
The Archetypes or Essential Nature of the Planets (Grahas)
SUNDAY 2 – 4:30
Jeffrey Armstrong will name and illuminate the most essential qualities and characteristics of the 9 grahas, with a special view to client therapy and recommendations for upaya to remedy a variety of imbalances. Learn how to explain the atma and the qualities of the planets to clients so they see how they manifest within them – so they don’t confuse these qualities as “self”.
Mantra Initiation to the Planets (Grahas)
SUNDAY 4:30 – 5:30
This initiation will reveal the 9 japa mantras of the grahas which are use for upaya and sadhana upon their essential natures. When the dhyana of ashtanga yoga is held while chanting these mantras, the Ishas of the grahas, who are the devas working on behalf of Sri Vishnu, gradually reveal their own true natures. This will result in the samadhi and siddhi stages of yogic awareness. At this point, the aspiring Jyotishi is accepted as a qualified channel through whom the grahas can reveal the benefits of a long-term perspective on karma and reincarnation.MONDAY: Intensive:
