Grace on the Spiritual Path


Product Information


The philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism has aptly been described as – ‘The Mystical Geography of Awareness’. These teachings not only give a straight forward and clear explanation of the nature of reality, but also outline the means by which any individual can have the direct experience of this reality.

Kashmir Shaivism is unique in its understanding of Grace and its importance. It recognizes that in the world of spirituality there are nine levels of Grace, which spontanously appear in small and large ways in various intensities in each of our lives.


• Grace on the Spiritual Path •


This in-depth study of grace in Kashmir Shaivism includes a number of original audio lectures given by Swami Lakshmanjoo to John and Denise Hughes. Together with George Barselaar, a close disciple of Swami Lakshmanjoo, they will elaborate and discuss the subject of grace on the spiritual path.

Each class begins with the recitation of the ancient Aghora mantra, meditation, followed by Swamiji’s lecture and a brief discussion, including answers to select questions from students.


Participants of this 4-week online course will...


  • Study the Kashmir Shaiva meaning of “Shaktipata".
  • Listen to the oral teachings of the ancient tradition of Kashmir Shaivism and understand why “love of God is the answer and the key”.
  • Learn why there is no spiritual path without Grace.
  • Examine the 9 levels of Grace in Kashmir Shaivism.
  • Learn to understand the reality of these teachings and how they apply to individuals on different levels of the spiritual path.

This online course is designed for students of all ages, and all levels of understanding.


Comments from participants of previous webinars:

“One of the most tangible, practical and accessible teachings that perfectly marries the world of science and spirituality and provides tools that all of us can use to make the world into a better place.”

– Jody R. Weiss


According to the many positive testimonials, one of the biggest benefits of the previous course was its application to a person's everyday life.


"Thank you very much for the just concluded and enlightening Webinar series! I grew up in Srinagar and had heard about Swamiji, but never had the good fortune to either meet him in person, or to listen to his commentaries while growing up.  You, through your assiduous work, have allowed people like myself to go back in time and relive moments, as though in the presence of dear Swamiji. Kudos to you all!

The series was very well conducted and the topic chosen, the Bodhapañcadaśikā, was simple, yet profound. I look forward to more seminars from the Academy. I am sure, having spent a number of years with Swamiji, you folks are in the best position to select the next topic.”

– Dr. Jatinder Bhan


“I was very pleased and delighted with all of them, learned immensely from the materials and the downloads especially the audios of Swamiji and subsequent commentaries. It was like a mini retreat. Or, maybe I could say, it was analogous to the concept of Yoga in action in the sense that Swamiji’s birthday retreat and Swamiji’s Mahasamadhi Havan and retreat were like our daily meditations early and late. Then the webinar was like the "Yoga in Action" strengthening the practice in between.

Jai Guru Dev"
Bruce Catalano

Thank you all for doing this.
Jai Guru Dev!!”
