I am a middle aged Iyer man. I practice Sandhyavandanam not regularly though and I regularly tell shlokas. In addition i recite Vishnu Sahasranama and Yajur Veda Suktas and Sri Rudram from Vishnu Sahasranamam. My question here is what is the next step of progress spiritually as an Iyer. We can't learn much of the Vedas now. Some people of other castes follow Yoga and other guru and improve spiritually. But I feel Iyers are left behind at the max learning upto some sukthas and Sri Rudram, how do I progress hereafter. Many people I enquire about general Hinduism tell to refer to Gurus. But our Gurus like Shankaracharyas are highest spiritual Sadhakas and we can't approach them directly for our spiritual upliftment. The Vathiyars are mostly busy in their profession and teach us only the Suktas. Learning Shlokas is another option but these are approaches only for a Bhakthi Yoga. Reading Puranas and Ithihasas too emphasize on Bhakthi Yoga. What is the approaches of Gnana Yoga available to Iyers now? Who are the Gurus we can approach?
