Saraswati Workshop with Shri Vivekshastri Godbole

Saraswati Workshop _slider

We are so honored to host Shri Vivekbhau Godbole for this special workshop on the Goddess Saraswati.

In the Indian texts, Saraswati is the goddess and muse of poetry, music, art, knowledge and wisdom.

Saraswati is the sacred energy that gives rise to eloquent speech, to the ability to grasp and absorb knowledge, and to the creative inspiration that is expressed through the arts. So Sarasvati is invoked by teachers and students, writers and public speakers, musicians and seekers of sacred wisdom. Saraswati is the energy behind flashes of intuitive insight, and the flow of creative inspiration.

In the Vedic tradition, the blessings of Sarasvati are invoked with special mantras and rituals that create a sense of deep connection and inspiration. We will experience and learn these during this workshop.

Every day we encounter the unfiltered deluge of our current public discourse, where truth, respect and eloquence are so often considered optional. We connect with the power of Sarasvati to evoke insights that transcend this level of discourse, and to inspire our own thoughts, speech and creative expressions to be uplifting, beneficial and wise.
