Sri Sukta Sadhana Stage 1, 40-Day (March 2024)

Registration is closed. Browse Course Marketplace

Sri Sukta Sadhana Stage 1 is the doorway to experience what you learned in the Sri Sukta Course. This 40-day group practice follows a time-honored tradition of 20 recitations of Sri Sukta daily for 40 days, as the foundational practice of Sri Sukta. Undertake this as a personal practice done from the convenience of your own home, but with the group support of like-minded seekers to benefit from the power of collective consciousness. The practice will empower you to embrace the inner joy and prosperity as seen through the eyes of the seers of Sri Sukta, and prepare you for further advanced tantric practices. Your at-home recitation practice will conclude with a special havan (tantric ritual of sacred fire) either in-person on campus or online.

Program Format:

March 25th – May 3rd: 40-day At-Home Sri Sukta Practice

  • Participants will undertake a daily practice of 20 recitations of Sri Sukta from home, for 40 days, either self-guided or with support from the provided recording or written sheet.

Program Highlights:
  • Begin or deepen your formal practice of Sri Sukta, as a powerful catalyst for your inner growth. Sri Sukta Stage 1 is often practiced multiple times to help you assimilate your experience of Sri Sukta more fully and effortlessly.
  • Learn more about Sri Sukta as a living practice, both as a standalone practice, catalyst to your current practice, as well as a group practice to nurture collective consciousness
  • Build a solid foundation for your ongoing Sri Sukta practice with this 40-day immersion
  • 40-day group practice of Sri Sukta, comprising 20 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.
  • Undertake your daily practice of 20 recitations of Sri Sukta from home, either self-guided or with support from the provided recording or written sheet. These 20 daily recitations may either be done in a single sitting or in two sittings.
  • 2 online sessions with Ishan throughout this 40-day period, for inspiration, spiritual community, and to answer questions which arise as you practice. Each of these sessions will conclude with 20 recitations of Sri Sukta.
  • Our 40-day practice culminates in a special havan with Panditji or Ishan 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 a session with Panditji and Ishan to elaborate on the dynamics of Sri Sukta sadhana, and the nature of our 80-recitation havan as the capstone of our 40-day recitation practice.
    • Lifetime access does not include the 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 closing capstone retreats is highly limited, so book your accommodations now.
  • Tuition for the in-person version of the closing capstone is included in your online program fee. Simply book your accommodations and pay for your room and board.
  • The Sri Sukta Sadhana Immersion (Stage 1) is a key preparation for future group practices, including the Sri Sukta Sadhana Immersion (Stage 2).
