Exploring the Vedas
The Exploring the Vedas course provides an in-depth and insightful way to access The Veda, a revered source of universal spiritual wisdom and practices originating thousands of years ago in India.  The Veda provides a way of understanding, experiencing and living in the world more consciously. It shows us how to attune our awareness to the laws of Nature, resulting in the ability to experience less friction and know better what is happening at any moment on all levels. The content and message of the Veda is universal, and available within everyone’s consciousness, awaiting to be realized and ready to transform the way you view the ebb and flow of life.

Exploring the Vedas (ETV) is a series of discourses given by Thom Knoles (Maharishi Vyasananda Saraswati), who is recognized as one of the world’s foremost teachers of the Veda’s true meaning and application.  In a six-seminar course of 73 hours recorded over a two-year period, Thom delves deeply into the Veda and draws out pearls of wisdom that are life-changing.  Students of ETV learn techniques for deepening meditation, for correcting the mistakes of the intellect, and for manifesting the life experiences that reveal true fulfillment.

Each of the 6 installments of Exploring the Vedas is conducted in a non-residential setting over a weekend. Each of the seminars can be enjoyed individually, with no obligation to complete all six, however, if the course is to be completed it needs to be in sequential order as one seminar leads naturally into the next.

A Siddhi is an extraordinary human capability to interacted and align with the laws of nature to manifest desires.  These advanced techniques allow us to, more powerfully, produce evolution and change in our lives.
