Acharya Shunya on How the Dharma Protects Us
Or so the conversation begins with Acharya Shunya. I count myself on the list of lucky mortals to have befriended this living guru. Our conversations are simultaneously easy and profound. I must say its a trippy experience. We've only spoken 3 times ever. This was the third.
For those new to Acharya Shunya she is the spiritual director at vedikaglobal.org. She has created a true gurukulam in Berkeley, CA. Our conversation takes place hot off the heels of her meeting with India's Prime Minster with a progressive group conversation about the future of Ayurveda for India with the top happening people from all over the world. How cool is that?
In this conversation with Acharya Shunya
I rap with Acharya Shunya about tapping into the Protection of Your Dharma.
What you’ll get out of tuning in
- Why you may be confused by not knowing the 3 types of dharma all have.
- Svadharma, sādhāraṇa dharma, Vishishta dharma
- How to tap into energy efficiency for miracles in your life to occur
- What is emerging in the field of Collective Leadership.
On Ego + Making Money
On the Naked Truth segment Grace Edison, both a colleague and thriver asks me about the role of ego in making money.
Acharya Shunya, who is the founder of Vedika Global, has dedicated her life to the dissemination of Vedic knowledge for the spiritual upliftment of all beings. She is a distinguished Vedic Scholar, and the living custodian of an eminent Vedic lineage from Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, India that has been imparting Ayurveda, Yoga, and Vedanta teaching for generations, in the tradition of classical gurukulam education.
Acharya Shunya has the special gift of awakening hope in suffering hearts and minds. Her authoritative, verse-by-verse teachings illumine the otherwise hard to interpret ideas from abstruse texts, in pure, clear light.
Her discourses, displaying the depth of her knowledge, greatly benefit all students, regardless of their background, spiritual alignment, and state of consciousness.
As a teacher, Acharya Shunya exudes compassion for all beings, and demonstrates tireless dedication towards alleviating existential suffering, by dispelling spiritual ignorance and igniting knowledge of the true Self.
“If we protect the dharma, the dharma protects us….”
“If you're not really joyful – svadharma has to be found!”
“You cannot not uphold what you're soul is here to do.”
“Jump on our Svadharma Bandwagon.”
