Advaita Vedanta - Self Inquiry Life Spiritual Meditation Retreat In Tiruvannamalai South India

The aim is to explore and realize the perennial, non-dual understanding that lies at the heart of all the ancient spiritual traditions, such as Advaita Vedanta, Buddhism, the Vedas of Hinduism, mystical Christianity, Zen, Tao, Dzog-Chen, Shamanism and Sufism. Here we will plumb the depths of the logos of Being, of eternity. You will learn about, understand and gain your true blissful nature, which is underlying, as the ever-present reality, all of our own experiences.

Madhukar – Enlighten Life is a contemporary, experiential approach of Jnana Yoga, the Yoga of Wisdom. The Enlighten Life retreats and events offer an unique, direct transmission of knowledge through Satsang. They include meditation, dialogue, silence, guided meditation, and other modern techniques of mastery which will support you. It requires no affiliation to any particular religious or spiritual tradition. All that is required is an interest in freedom, the essential nature of experience. And a longing for love and peace, the desire for meaningfulness and happiness, around which most of our lives revolve. 

About Madhukar, Founder of Madhukar – Enlighten Life

Madhukar is a direct disciple of Papaji (Sri H.W.L. Poonja), the „Lion of Lucknow“, whose Guru was the famous sage of Arunachala, Sri Ramana Maharshi.

Born in Germany in 1957, Madhukar began already in his youth to ask a multitude of spiritual questions which grew more urgent after an experience of Oneness and a near-death experience. After experiencing a spontaneous Kundalini awakening, Madhukar ended his professional career and became a student of the Dzogchen Master Namkhai Norbu and continued looking for absolute truth. This search ended in 1992 in India where he met Sri H.W.L. Poonja (Papaji). Madhukar had arrived at his Master who ultimately awakened him to his own true nature. Read More
