About Course

Essential Spirituality is a collection of 42 short videos intended to spark deeper reflection on the subtle inner terrain that holds the solutions for many outer maladies.

Our guide on this journey is Sister Jayanti Kirpalani, who is exceptionally articulate on the subject of spiritual knowledge and practice. For more about Sister Jayanti,. Her gift is her ability to explain “lived spirituality” in ways that instantly make sense, inspiring others to apply it to their lives. Off camera in these recordings, but occasionally visible, are Eric Le Reste and Judy Rodgers, who have worked in media and are long-term students of raj yoga and its applications to living in the world. They helped develop the concept and frame the questions that drive this video series.

Though these videos are collected into three sections, you may select those that have the most relevance for you. Watching these videos will stir your mind, but if you want a deeper experience, it will be important to find the meditation commentaries at the end of each section, and watch those, which will help you integrate what she has said into your personal life. To make your meditation more effective, keep the eyes open and watch the video as you listen to the thoughts offered by Sister Jayanti.

We hope you will use this website as a way to explore your own spiritual dimension and practice the concepts proposed in order to make your higher values a reality.

Essential Spirituality has also been showcased by Conscious Good Media recognizing the excellence and relevance of Sister Jayanti’s practical vision of spirituality. You can see their work here:

Course Content

A Spiritual Perspective
Life looks different when viewed from a spiritual perspective. Those with spiritual awareness recognize alternatives to negative patterns and learn to understand and apply them. In this section Sister Jayanti shows how a spiritual perspective transforms our inner state from fear to dignity, from anxiety to courage, from sorrow to fulfillment and from anger to peace.

Spirituality of The Self
Spirituality remains a concept and a philosophy until I make it personal. How do I become more spiritual? Not just in knowing about it, but in living it practically such that my life reflects the values that are innate in the self. In this section Sister Jayanti takes us to the heart of spiritual study and practice: the self, God, karma and practice.

From Spiritual Practice to Spiritual Life
From thinking to doing, there may be a gap. It’s easy to think big thoughts, but hard to make them real. How does my inner spiritual progress affect my expression in relationships and in the situations that characterise our times? Spiritual practice allows you to build spiritual capacity and serve others. In this section, Sister Jayanti talks about “applied spirituality”: forgiveness, caring and contribution.
