Patañjali's Raja Yoga Sutras: Sadhana Pada - Ashtanga Yoga




2 Weeks

About the Course

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. Maharishi Patanjali was communicating from the plane of this undefinable, in non-human language, through ‘telepathy’ as per the ancient record, with the students he had chosen as recipients for the Yoga Sutras, the aphorisms of Yoga. The Raja Yoga system is also called Ashtanga, which translates to 8 limbs -  ashta(eight) & anga(limbs).
