about this event

A Weekly Online Series with Prajwal Ratna Vajracharya



MAY 30 • JUNE 6 • JUNE 13 • JUNE 20

The Buddhist deities embody hand mudras for purity, power, and wisdom. We begin our practice of Mudra Yoga with an explanation of the significance of each finger and how applying the proper gesture can heal the body. We will go on to consider the full body positions of the deities as mudra, emulating their iconography in movement, breath, and stillness. The practice of deity yoga cultivates an appreciation of the inner beauty of the body and an understanding of our personal mudras as unique expression.

All are welcome, no prior experience required!

Prajwal Ratna Vajracharya is a priest of one of the Vajrayana Buddhist lineages of Nepal and a ritual master both of the Charya Nritya dance tradition and other ritual forms performed by the Newar Vajracharya lineage. Prajwal began his training in Charya Nritya at eight years old, receiving formal instruction mainly from his father, the Buddhist scholar and ritual master Ratna Kaji Vajracharya. Prajwal Vajracharya is now the premier teacher, practitioner, and performer of the tradition and is a veteran of several world tours with beginning and advanced students around the globe. He founded Dance Mandal: Foundation for Sacred Buddhist Arts of Nepal to preserve and expand this rare art form and its related traditions. With the survival of this sacred ritual dance threatened by modernization, Prajwal, at his father’s wishes, has dedicated his life to bringing this unique Buddhist heritage from the temples of Nepal to the world, while adhering to its original purpose as a profound spiritual practice.
