Featured Speaker:Pedro Oliveira
Venue:Melbourne Lodge

Pedro Oliveira, Former TSA Education Coordinator, 23 July 1.30-3pm Zoom Session


Yoga, the ageless science of consciousness, contains both philosophical and practical aspects. It aims to discover the wholeness within ourselves. According to Yoga, there are five Kleshas which are the fundamental afflictions that beset every human being.

They are: Avidyā (ignorance), Asmitā (egoism), Rāga (attachment), Dveṣa (aversion) and Abhiniveśāḥ (clinging to life/fear of death). This presentation will attempt to derive a practical understanding from this profound philosophy.
