Untying the ‘Knots of the Heart’-Hṛdaya-Granti Bhedanam

Join Gary Kraftsow , Founder and Director of the American Viniyoga Institute, to discover the “knots of the heart-mind” (hṛdaya-granti) in relation to the bondage of desire, action, and ignorance as they manifest through the cakra-s and influence our feelings, thoughts and behaviour. This training will use the cakra model to explore these knots that form the framework of our personality and bind us in this life. Untying the knots leads to the psycho-energetics of transformation.

We live in perpetual state of identification with and attachment to changing internal conditions and external circumstances which makes us unable to see our true nature. Ancient teachings stipulate that the cause of this perpetual cycle (saṁsāra) is the bondage of – Avidyā (ignorance), Kāma (desire) and Karma (action) – resulting in the tension and suffering of a distorted self-perception, unfulfilled desires, and incessant activity.

The Ancients said that this three-fold bondage forms the framework of our personality, and called it, collectively, the Hṛdaya Granthi: the “knot of the heart”.Discover the “knots of the heart-mind” (hṛdaya-granti) in relation to the bondage of desire, action, and ignorance as they manifest through the cakras and influence our feelings, thoughts and behavior.
