Patañjali's Raja Yoga Sutras: Kaivalya Pada


Maharishi Patanjali, one of the Great Unknown Masters of ancient Indian sciences and languages, was no longer human when he transmitted the aphorisms that came later to be recorded and popularised as Raja Yoga, or the Royal Yoga. The very essence of the Raja Yoga lies in the understanding of what it means to be human and how, given that understanding, one can willfully transcend unto higher states of consciousness. Having then transcended to beyond where there is no more transcendence, the thing that remains is not a human, in fact it is not even a thing. It is simply a happening-an undefinable, separately defined by each observer as per his/ her capacity. In this course, the final chapter of Patanjali's Raja Yoga Sutras : "Kavailya Pada - Absolute Freedom", which explains the Highest State of Kaivalya and the splendorous levels of higher consciousness states that are to waiting be experienced, is explained verse by verse with utmost clarity and brevity. Yoga practitioners, psychologists and cognitive scientists would appreciate these teachings, which have been presented in a systematic and syncretic approach, keeping in mind the present-day socio-cultural trends.  The following sub-topics are covered in this course -    a)Highest Yoga Psychology - Cognition, Self and Reality b) The Mind Illusion c) True Self and Absolute Freedom
