"An Introduction to Shaivism" will be an engaging discussion delivered by Dr. Sthaneshwar Timalsina: Professor of Religion, scholar of Indian Philosophy, and traditionally-trained Acharya of Shaiva-Shakta Tantra.


Shaivism is one of the major Hindu traditions, yet it can be confusing what Shaivism really is…there are so many sub-traditions, from the dualism of Shaiva Siddhanta to the Advaita of “Kashmir Shaivism,” each with their own set of core philosophies and practices…


We welcome you to join Vimarsha Foundation in this discussion, led by Acharya Dr. Sthaneshwar Timalsina to further your understanding of Shaivism and ask your questions to an esteemed and authentic scholar-practitioner
