Guru Puja is Celebrated Worldwide: Vancouver Dinner Honoring Kavindra Rishi

July 16 @ 6:45 pm - 11:00 pm

We offer our gratitude to ALL the teachers and yogis who have passed the Vedic knowledge forward often under great austerities. There is really no way to repay the service the Guru offers to students, other than to assist them in their Divine Service of transmitting the Vedic knowledge to others.

This year VASA we host a dinner Tuesday, July 16,  celebrating our teacher Jeffrey Armstrong | Kavindra Rishi – we would be honored if you can attend. Full Program will be sent to you once you RSVP.

“Guru brahma Guru Vishnu Guru devo Maheshwaraha
Guru sakshaat Para brahman tasmai Shri gurave namaha”

We offer our gratitude to ALL the teachers and yogis who have passed the Vedic knowledge forward, often under great adversity. There is really no way to repay the service the Guru offers to students, other than to assist them in their Divine Service of transmitting the Vedic knowledge to others.

An aspirant cannot learn by their own endeavor alone; the Guru (teacher) is essential to one’s learning journey. The scriptures may be the signposts pointing towards the path, but the inspiration to follow that road stems from the Guru. The Guru’s teaching is our strength when we lose our way. Each year, Vedic students honor their teachers in gratitude for all the learning they have received.

We also acknowledge and appreciate the study, service, dedication and devotion that our students so generously show us, allowing us to transmit this unique lineage to future students and generations. The Distinctivist Path may not be as well-known in the West as the Advaita Vedanta non-dual teachings, yet the Personal path to Bhagavan is a powerful and important aspect of Vedanta which must continue to be transmitted and kept alive, especially in these dark times.

Jeffrey teaches from the “Brahma-Saraswati-Madhva-Gaudia-Vaishnava-Sampradaya lineage or more simply put: Inconceivably, Simultaneously, One & Different: The Distinctivist Path of Vedanta.”

“Guru Brahma Guru Vishnu Guru devo Maheshwaraha
Guru sakshaat Para brahman tasmai Shri gurave namaha”
