One common lesson of all serious spiritual teachings is that as long as I remain the way I am I cannot come to the Truth or to God or to the Real. A radical transformation of the whole of my being is needed in order to be free of the usual worldly occupations with fear and desire of what I usually call myself. What is called for is not freedom for myself but freedom from myself.
The fundamental requirement for that undertaking is self-inquiry. There are many basic and important shifts experienced by a searcher in the journey of self-transformation.
An important shift is from what I see to the importance of seeing and therefore a need to enhance the quality of my perception as it becomes clear that self-awareness is the mechanism of self-transformation.
Another important shift is from an occupation with the goal of the journey to the adventure of the journey itself.
Still another important shift is from my determined effort to an increasing receptivity to a mystery which cannot be solved, but with enhanced receptivity is sometimes dissolved. Then one does not deny the mystery, nor fears it, but rather celebrates it in one’s own unique way.
Each 90 minute long Zoom meeting includes a guided meditation, a talk by Ravi and time for Q&A.
Registered participants will receive a Zoom invitation before the start of the retreat.

According to a great sage in the Rig Veda, sacrifice, or yajña in Sanskrit, is the navel of the cosmos. Every sacred undertaking is a yajña. The whole of creation is a yajña and is sustained by yajña. Only action undertaken as a sacrifice, yajña karma, is free of the bondage of action. Krishna, who is invoked as the Lord of yajña, asserted that in order to fulfill dharma (responsibility, duty) a searcher has to practice yoga, but yoga cannot be accomplished without yajña.
In English, the word sacrifice is derived from the two Latin words: sacer and facere, 'to make sacred.' Throughout the teaching of the gospels, Jesus Christ issues a call and an invitation to sacrifice ourselves in order to relate to the sacred. Christ himself and all his disciples undergo suffering undertaken intentionally as a sacrifice.
Continual sacrifice is needed for the sake of maintaining cosmic order which is sustained through yajña. Christ performs yajña on a cosmological scale as he sacrifices himself in order to save the world.
Love is a constituent of the highest reality and it is the greatest force of mutual nourishment. The world is sustained by love, which is sustained by sacrifice. “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son.”
