Swami Chetanananda has studied and practiced the Śrī Chakra puja for over 40 years. Here he offers an in-depth study of the ancient tradition of Śrī Vidyā and the Śrī Chakra sadhana. He discusses the philosophical concepts underlying the tradition and relates them to contemporary discoveries in quantum physics and neuroscience.
The puja incorporates the practices of kundalini yoga with emphasis on the unfolding of the powers in the chakras. It incorporates the ritual components of nyāsa, mudrā, japa, and yantra contemplation along with outer ritual offerings. The distinctive characteristics of the Śrī Vidyā tradition are the worship of the Goddess Tripurasundarī, the recitation of the Śrī Vidyā mantra, and the employment of the Śrī Chakra mandala.
The traditional Śrī Chakra practice is highly elaborate, and Swamiji has worked to distill it to its essential elements so that it is short enough to be performed by practitioners daily while remaining authentic and powerful.
The course includes everything you need to know to practice the pūjā—how to create a space for the practice, a commentary on the text of the daily practice manual, explanations and demonstrations of nyāsa, mantra and mudrā, and descriptions of the offerings. It includes a variety of resources for further study and exploration to enhance your practice.
