The basic questions of Who Am I? Where Am I Going? What Is the Purpose of Life? are asked by every generation, and Patanjali's answers (given in the third century BC) form one of the oldest spiritual texts in the world. 'That which unites' is called 'Yoga' - and is thus much broader than the form of exercise so popular today. It is a way to restore our lost wholeness, our integrity as complete human beings, by unifying the personality around a centre that is silent and unbounded. Alistair Shearer's superb introduction and translation bring these ancient, vital teachings to life in the modern world and are for all those who seek the benefits of self-knowledge.

S Tras Stories And Yoga Philosophy

This book presents a close reading of four Indian narratives from different time periods (epic, Upaniṣadic, pre-modern and contemporary): Ekalavya's story from the Mahābhārata (MBh 1.123.1-39), the story of Prajāpati, Indra and Virocana from the Chāndogya Upaniṣad (CU 8.7.1-8.12.5), the story of Śaṅkara in the King's body from the Śaṅkaradigvijaya, and A.R. Murugadoss's Hindi film Ghajini (2008), respectively. These stories are thematically juxtaposed with Pātañjala-yoga, namely Patañjali's Yogasūtra and its vast commentarial body. The sūtras reveal hidden philosophical layers. The stories, on the other hand, contribute to the clarification of "philosophical junctions" in the Yogasūtra.Through sūtras and stories, the author explores the question of self-identity, with emphasis on the role of memory and the place of body in identity-formation. Each of the stories diagnoses the connection between self-identity and (at least a sense of) freedom. Employing cutting-edge methodology, crossing the boundaries of literary theory, story-telling, and philosophical reflection, this book presents fresh interpretations of Indian thought. It is useful to specialists in Asian philosophy and culture.

In 80 Essays nähert sich der Autor der Yogalehre. Der Inhalt umfaßt folgende Themenbereiche: - Tägliche Übungen - Heilkundliche Betrachtungen - Soziologisches Umfeld - Vedischer Hintergrund - Berufliche Zusammenhänge Dreh- und Angelpunkt dieser Arbeit sind die Yoga-S.tras von Patañjali. Aus den verschiedensten Ansätzen heraus findet der Autor immer wieder - oft überraschend unkonventionell, dicht am Puls unserer Zeit und voller Humor - in die Mitte der Yoga-Lehre, zu den Yoga-S.tras. Hier spürt man, die S.tras sind gelebte Realität, Aufforderung zu eigenen Erfahrungen und hochaktuell. Als Beispiel: das Wort vom Ruck, der durch die Gesellschaft gehen muß, klingt uns allen noch im Ohr. Aber wie geht das, ein Ruck? Gibt die Yoga-Lehre dazu Antworten? Wer auf der Suche nach seiner eigenen Kreativität ist, nach Antworten, die nicht von anderen vorformuliert wurden, sondern aus der Tiefe des eigenen Wissens und Herzens entstehen, wird in dieser Broschüre viel Anregung, Anstoß und Geleit dazu finden. Die Texte spiegeln die Arbeit einer ganzen Yoga-Schule, der Yoga-Schule Stuttgart. Rudolf Fuchs, der Leiter der Schule und Autor dieser Broschüre, unterrichtet nunmehr seit über 40 Jarhen den Yoga: voller Respekt vor der Yogalehre und den Schätzen, die ein jeder von uns in sich birgt. Sein Anliegen: Menschen mit der Klarheit der Lehre zu ihren ureigenen Möglichkeiten zu führen. Eine Fundgrube für jeden Yoga-Übenden

The popular perception of yoga in the West remains for the most part that of a physical fitness program, largely divorced from its historical and spiritual roots. The essays collected here provide a sense of the historical emergence of the classical system presented by Patañjali, a careful examination of the key elements, overall character and contemporary relevance of that system (as found in the Yoga Sutra) and a glimpse of some of the tradition's many important ramifications in later Indian religious history.

Just as grief is an experience that affects us physically, mentally, emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually, yoga sustains and strengthens us in all of those same areas. This book demonstrates how the principles and practices of yoga can help relieve symptoms of grief allowing those who have experienced loss to move toward wholeness, peace, and feelings of connection with loved ones who have died. Exploring the six branches of yoga, the book shows how each branch can support us through grief in different ways whether it be the self-reflection of Jnana Yoga, the spiritual devotion of Bhakti Yoga, the meditation of Raja Yoga, or the physical postures of Hatha Yoga. We are shown how to begin and sustain a personal practice, both on and off the yoga mat, which helps us to cope with and move through grief on multiple levels. Expressive and experiential exercises are included to help explore each of the branches of yoga and find ways to put the tenets of each branch into real life practice.
