the spirit of Yoga

Sravana, Manana and Niidhidhyasana:
Listen, think and practice, this is what the Vedas say.

What is this that we are talking about? The context is the enquiry into the nature of one's true self.

What should we listen to? We should listen to the expositions of the Upanishads, especially the Mahavakyas - the great statements, which express the extraordinary equivalence between our own selves and the universe 'outside'We should ideally listen to such a statement not from a mere professor or academician, but from a guru, one who has actually realized this Supreme Identity, for, it then carries with it a power beyond the merely verbal or intellectual content.

And then, after having listened carefully, and repeatedly, we should reflect on the truth or otherwise of what has been said, and finally, or concurrently, find the truth acting directly on our ‘little’ selves.

The book - "YOGATMA - the Spirit of YOGA"-  seeks to enhance the quality of the practice and teaching of Yoga through an introductory exploration of the multi-layered character of Yoga. Those seriously interested in the spirit of authentic Yoga traditions and those who acknowledge that there is something more to Yoga than just asana and pranayama will find this book of some interest.
For those in the West, and for those wanting to learn something about the essentials of Hinduism, this book of short essays will prove to be very useful.

In India, "YOGATMA- the Spirit of YOGA" is available (in both e-book and print formats) on Amazon & Flipkart.

In the course of our conversation, we will explore Jnana Yoga - the Yoga of Knowledge, based primarily on the teachings of the Upanishads. This should serve as an introduction for all those interested in pursuing Yoga beyond the physical aspects of the discipline.
