The Secret To Self-Realization – 2-Part Course Series
In the days of yore, disciples lived with their Gurus and performed many years of service to their Master. It was only after many, many tests that they were then blessed with the receipt of Shaktipat. Then, only after more years of daily service, were they offered the secret of the spiritually-perfected Sages – The Secret To Self-Realization.
Understanding the change in times and the needs of today’s spiritual aspirants, in the great oral tradition of the Sadgurus of our lineage, Sadguru Kedarji now offers a two-year course of study (Parts 1 and 2) in the examination and principles, the full realization of which bestows Self-Realization.
Pathway To Liberation
Sadguru Kedarji leads this two-year, extensive examination of the path to uninterrupted Peace, Joy and Wellness. The Secret To Self-Realization is offered to those who recognize the value of and want to adopt a spiritual lifestyle in order to embrace permanent spiritual transformation and wellness Now, that sets you on a pathway to Liberation.
This pathway to uninterrupted Peace, Joy and Wellness is based on the Yoga Science of Kashmir Shaivism and integrated into our approach by Sadguru Kedarji. (This is not the Shaivism defined on the Internet by Google and Wikipedia. These are the principles and methods taught as part of a time-honored, oral tradition, as part of an unbroken lineage of Sadgurus that dates back to the pre-bronze age).
Emphasis is placed on helping you to establish a discipline in your daily spiritual practice that is focused on developing a bond of power between you and Sadguru Kedarji. These courses are for those who want to make permanent spiritual transformation and wellness, and the pathway to Liberation, the top priority in their lives. People attending these courses learn how to master all the energies of their lives in favor of becoming established in the true Heart – the highest abode of the inner Self.
Integration of Holistic Wellness
To this, Sadguru Kedarji adds his vast knowledge and experience in the holistic wellness field. As a result, this offering is a dynamic, effective means of fully imbibing and applying Sadguru Kedarji’s Ecology of Wellness and his 4 Pillars of Total Well-Being – in the context of the goal of Nityananda Shaktipat Yoga. As such, this is a profound pathway to Liberation from the bondage of ignorance.
The Secret To Self-Realization is a series of all-day courses that are offered once each month, for twelve months in each of two parts. These all-day courses are usually offered on a Saturday, from 10am – 5pm. **They are webcast live to participants living outside of a 75-mile radius of our retreat center.

A Sample of Course Experience Shares
“When I first entered The Secret To Self-Realization series of courses, I referred to the teachings and practices I was taught in these courses as the “meat and potatoes” of Nityananda Shaktipat Yoga. To this day, this is still how I feel. These courses provide the essential understandings, practices and secrets to gaining the deeper understanding of this approach.
Every month, at the end of each course, I can’t wait for the next course. Everything I learn makes more than just sense. Between courses, I practice and apply what we have been taught and I experience the proof in my life that it is the Truth about life, love and the joy of the true Heart that I am gaining. I leave these courses singing the mantra, Om Namah Shivaya, and knowing, deep within my heart, that I have come home.”

“In The Secret To Self-Realization, we meet regularly in small, group settings under the guidance of Sadguru Kedarji, to imbibe the teachings of the great masters of our lineage. The teachings of our lineage require more than simply intellectual study. When presented by a Shakta adept like Kedarji, they are enlivened with the Shakti of the lineage. Our own awareness is raised to a vibratory level wherein we can begin to experience the truth of the teachings for ourselves, in the laboratory of our own existence. In this way, The Secret To Self-Realization series provides experiential knowledge, not just intellectual knowledge.
We bring with us a number of obstacles to leading a spiritual lifestyle and to fully aligning ourselves with Grace. These obstacles are our own past karmas on which our mental conditioning is based, and the limited understandings that result from them. For me, these courses have provided the tools and experiences necessary to release these old, limiting mental conditionings and understandings, and to gradually replace them with higher understandings. Through recognizing and applying these higher understandings and practices, I find myself experiencing the bliss of the Self on a daily basis. Even when immersed in my daily activities, when I remember to apply the teachings taught in these courses, I experience the bliss of the Self and prove to myself the Truth of the teachings.
The Secret To Self-Realization series of courses is also a privilege to receive personalized guidance from a Living Shakta Adept, and to grow and bond with fellow students in our spiritual community. As students in these courses, we have become close friends, as well as fellow Bhaktas in our spiritual community, and we often discuss and share our experiences together. The support of a spiritual community, along with the direct and personalized guidance from Sadguru Kedarji, has made it possible for me to remain faithful to my daily practice, and to continue to deepen my immersion in and experience of the blissful play of the Divine Shiva-Shakti power.”

The format is that of the Guru Kula, the school of the Guru. As the lessons are taught, students take notes. There are also breakout groups and group sharing sessions. Written tests are administered on a regular basis throughout the series so that students remain aware of how well they are grasping and applying the lessons.
In addition, contemplation assignments are instructed which are vital to the inner experience of the lessons being taught. Also, there are additional methods for spiritual and wellness practice that are offered, which Sadguru Kedarji does not instruct in public programs. Above all, The Secret To Self-Realization course series offers the privilege of keeping Sadguru Kedarji’s company on a continual basis for this two-year period.
Each of Sadguru Kedarji’s 4 Pillars of Total Well-Being is examined in this series of courses, also affording students the privilege of learning the science that is on the cutting edge of holistic wellness that includes vibrant health.
There are 12, all-day courses in Part 1 (first year), and 12, all-day courses in Part 2 (second year). Each successive course after the first is scheduled by majority vote of students present. So, there is a degree of flexibility in scheduling. The Secret To Self-Realization is offered in smaller groups, in the quiet and Shakti-filled setting of the great Nileshwar Hall in Youngstown, Ohio.
In order to apply you must have taken, at least, one weekend Shaktipat Blessing Retreat in the last three years.
