The Mahavidya Program, one of the spiritual pillars of Agama Yoga, represents the heritage of one of the greatest Tantric Traditions of India: the Kaula Lineage. While this precious treasure that Agama has inherited is partly expressed through our teachings on Sexual Tantra, Mahavidya Yoga brilliantly complements the other side of the Tantric Tradition. These teachings, can be compared only, to the Tibetan Tantric Tradition of Deity Yoga.
The Mahavidya Introduction gives a general overview of the Mahavidyas, as a whole. Two lectures of Swami, totalling 5 hours, will be sent to you, which summarise the tradition in depth. Afterwards, there will be a scheduled Q&A Live Session on Zoom, and simultaneously in presence for those in Koh Phangan.
- Discover the Mahavidyas and connect with the Fundamental Forces of the Universe within yourself

“The Mahavidya Series is an outstanding exploration of the different Cosmic Powers. We dived into beautiful, delicate, spiritual concepts that have deepened the way I look at my life, and my own practice. I’m inspired and thrilled to continue this exploration with the upcoming one!” Sharon, Israel

The founder of Agama Yoga, Swami Vivekananda Saraswati, or “Swamiji” to his students, is a passionate and dedicated teacher of the authentic lines of Indian and Tibetan Yoga, which are rapidly becoming lost in today’s “spiritual marketplace.”
In 1998, Swami Vivekananda took full sannyasa vows at the Kumbha Mela in India, at which time he was ordained; his diksha guru bestowing upon him his new and famous name, which means discriminating insight.
Although restrained by a modesty that usually prevents him from discussing it, Swamiji has reached high states of spiritual realisation and samadhi. From this place of knowing, he offers a proven path to spiritual accomplishment in well-articulated concepts. He is one of the few Western Tantric Teachers well-versed in Kundalini Yoga and Gnostic Christianity, and he specialises in the intensely spiritual Tantra Yoga of Kashmir Shaivism.
Swamiji’s guidance is felt in many ways at Agama: from in the classroom, presenting Yoga as a living science, based on common sense and joy; to administering various healing techniques, as a practitioner of chiropractic and other healing methods; to lecturing on esoteric Yogic subjects in weekly Satsang; or discussing personal life problems with pupils, possibly in their own language (as he speaks five).
Swamiji inspires by personal example and examples from history, quoting uninterruptedly from scores of ancient texts and spiritual masters – all with a great sense of humour and unmatched character.
