Sheela Gunjur 25 March 1.30 to 3.30pm
In this talk, Sheela gives us an introduction to the Yoga Sutras based on the book “Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali” written by the renowned Hatha yoga teacher, late B.K.S. Iyengar.
Sage Patanjali’s treatise on yoga is considered a bible on yoga.
The Yoga Sutras were compiled between 500 and 200 CE, by the great sage Patanjali in India, who synthesized and organized knowledge about yoga from much older traditions.
The Yoga Sutras are best known for their reference to the eightfold practice culminating in enlightenment. The talk will present the aim of the eight elements of practice. The main aim of practice is kaivalya, discernment of purusha, the witness-consciousness, as distinct from prakriti, the cognitive apparatus, and disentanglement of purusha from prakriti's muddled defilements.
