What Is Dosha Dristi?
Helmut: I have been studying the qualifications from James’ students’ website ExploreVedanta.com. Are you familiar with dosha drishti as a specific Shama practice?
Sundari: Doshas are impurities, or “bad energies,” and drishti literally means “visual defect” – eyes are symbols of knowledge, so drishti is a defect in your understanding, or knowledge, how you “see,” which produces negative states of mind. Thus this is a practice to work on removing the impurities or negative thoughts in the mind; basically it is the same as karma yoga and works in tandem with it.

For years I have happily and diligently responded to communications on the topic of Self realization. Since the publication of my book, “How to Attain Enlightenment”— currently in its third printing —and the success of this website, the volume of emails has increased considerably. Unfortunately, owing to a busy schedule of teaching and writing, I am no longer able to answer all the emails I receive in a timely fashion. However, my wife, who is also a teacher, and several well-qualified teachers we have endorsed are available to answer emails on my behalf. I encourage you to send them your questions.
