Welcome back to Dhimanta!

shiva-nandiWe are at that point of the year when we plan for the next biennial meeting of the Jaimini Scholars.


This time around we plan to discuss a few more sutra of Maharsi Jaimini. Scholar Visti Larsen has indicated the following as an initial set and will be adding more after his review:
Sūtras that have been left out: 1.2.63, 2.4.18 – 2.4.26, 2.4.31 – 2.4.37
In addition, we shall also discuss some advanced concepts about yoga.
Another topic included for review is Vedic Numerology and its application in Jyotisa (input from Scholar Deborah Young)

Needless to say, this is going to be another very enlightening meeting that is restricted “Only for Certified Jaimini Scholars”.


The JSP-A2 Program requires your presence for eleven days
Thursday 04 May, 2017 to Sunday 14, May, 2017.
Many of us will be arriving a day before on the 3 May, 2017 after the BAVA conference in London. We plan to stay on for a couple of days at Malta after JSP-A2 and you are welcome to plan your trip to share a dinner and a little quiet time with us.

Dakshina (Fees)

Join JSP-A2 Today! Pay Later
You are Jaimini Scholars and can estimate whatever is rightfully due as guru dakshina.
The recommended minimum dakshina is $700. This can be a lumpsum donation or a recurring subscription (@ $108 for 7 months) – you choose whatever is convenient. Please note that a tax rate of 12% is charged.

Unlike JSPA (2015), we plan to have both audio and video recordings for JSP-A2 (2017). While we are well equipped to handle the slide recordings, we would request at least one Scholar to come forward and bring along a video camera to do a video recording. This will be of immense help to review discussions and future Scholars. If you can do this service, please write to the director.

Kindly confirm your acceptance by informing the director.

We shall be providing PDFs of the handouts every morning before the the start of classes at 8.00 am. Please ensure that you have internet access to download these handouts from a private link.


Once again we have chosen the quiet northern island of Gozo in the Maltese archipelago in the blue Mediterranean sea. And to be within our comfort zone, the very same hotel – Cornucopia. We encourage you to make an early booking as soon as you hear from our local Jaimini scholar coordinator that the rates have been negotiated and fixed.
