Book 2 of Patañjali Yoga Sūtras

अनित्याशुचिदुःखानात्मसु नित्यशुचिसुखात्मख्यातिरविद्या ॥५॥
anityā-aśuci-duḥkha-anātmasu nitya-śuci-sukha-ātmakhyātir-avidyā ||5||

-Lack of knowledge is to apprehend the non-eternal, impure, sad, and non-self as
the eternal, pure, happy, and essential Self-

By committing to the 500 hours YTTC program at Shri Kali Ashram, you give yourself the time to step away from distractions of life and immerse yourself deeply in the teachings and practices. This time will allow you to integrate yourself and reach a higher level of skill in teaching the Traditional Tantra Yoga system to others. Traditionalists understand that to become an advanced teacher is not simply a matter of collecting and repeating information. You can only share what you have truly attained yourself.  In 3 month’s time you will develop a more nuanced understanding which you can pass on to your own students. You will build more upon everything covered in the 200 hour program and can further it towards your specific interests.
