Lectures on Mantra
In this insightful series about mantras, Swami Veda Bharati elucidates the subtle complexities of a secret science which few have mastered so well. This enlightening series provides a practical foundation for a personal mantra practice. Swami Veda teaches from a depth of meditative experience rarely found outside the caves of the Himalayas. Through guided practice and clear explanations, travel to the origins of mantras (sacred words), and learn how mantras deepen meditation, unlock the sleeping power within and serve as a living personal guide. Swami Veda illuminates the pathways to meditation in practical ways that lead to greater clarity of mind and improve your concentration. Learn how to practice using mantras to refine the breath; as a method for stilling the mind; as well as a means to deepen your meditation. Swami Veda understands the challenges of modern life and shows how a regular meditation practice can help improve decision-making, relationships and your overall sense of well-being throughout the day. The scope, depth and accessibility of this short series are invaluable to both novice and experienced meditators alike.

Lectures on the Shiva Sutras
This series is Kashmiri Shaivism at its finest-the quintessential merging of Advaita Vedanta, Tantra, Kundalini and Patañjali Yoga. The yoga system and Vedanta teach liberation from the outside in-bahir-mukha to antar-mukha. The Shiva Sutras does just the opposite-from the inside out-and it turns our language, ideas and categories inside out in the process. Swami Veda is able to elucidate the subtle complexities of this sacred text in a clear, practical way. We are led to question the perceived impossible and shown how to turn our obstacles into stepping stones. All our patterns and pathways translate into moment-by-moment decisions, which, with awareness, have the potential to impel us to change. This series is like entering an innermost sacred chamber where one can learn directly from the master.
