Yoga
Display: 

 

Yoga, meaning ‘union’ in Sanskrit, is a family of ancient spiritual practices, and also a school of spiritual thought that originated in India, where it remains a vibrant living tradition and is seen as a means to enlightenment. Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Jnana Yoga, and Raja Yoga are considered the four main yogas, but there are many other types. In other parts of the world where yoga is popular, notably the West, Yoga has become associated with the asanas (postures) of Hatha Yoga, which are popularly considered there as fitness exercises and also form the basis of an expanding business.

Yoga as a means to enlightenment is central to Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, and has influenced other religious and spiritual practices throughout the world. Ancient Hindu texts establishing the basis for yoga include the Upanishads, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Bhagavad Gita, the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and many others, which specify the criteria of having successfully mastered a particular yoga technique.

Yoga and How to Get Started by Stephen Knapp Topic: Yoga
The purpose of any true spiritual path is to raise our consciousness to the point of allowing us to directly perceive the spiritual dimension. Being spiritual means to recognize one’s spiritual identity and practically see the transcendental essence of all others.

Yoga and Ecology by Dr. David Frawley Topic: Yoga
Both Yoga and Ayurveda are all about working with the forces of nature, which are not just as material energies but powers of consciousness. This work with nature occurs at both internal and external levels. Internally, we need to balance the forces of our own nature as body, mind, breath and spirit...

Yoga and Buddhism: Similarities and Differences by Dr. David Frawley Topic: Yoga
Yoga and Buddhism are sister traditions which evolved in the same spiritual culture of ancient India. They use many of the same terms and follow many of the same principles and practices. For this reason it is not surprising that many of us born in the West, particularly after an initial exposure, a...

Vedic Yoga, the Oldest Form of Yoga by Dr. David Frawley Topic: Yoga
Yoga is a comprehensive set of spiritual practices designed to enable us to realize the greater universe of consciousness that is our true nature. The term Yoga means to unite, coordinate, harmonize, work, or transform. It refers to the linking all aspects of our being, from the physical body to our...

Vedic Yoga and the Three Gunas by Dr. David Frawley Topic: Yoga
Any student of classical Yoga is well aware of the importance of the three gunas in yogic thought and practice. Few, however, are aware of their Vedic background and the deeper understanding that a Vedic perspective brings to them.

The Shiva Linga and its Meaning by Dr. David Frawley Topic: Yoga
The sexual symbolism of Tantra, like the subject of sexuality in general, has always engaged the human mind. The modern mind seems to be obsessed with it as well. Many people into Tantra, as well as most of the scholars who write on it, seem unable to move beyond the physical suggestions of these sy...

The Purusha Principle of Yoga by Dr. David Frawley Topic: Yoga
One could say that the essence of our humanity is that we are ‘sentient’ beings, conscious entities possessed of feelings and capable of suffering. We cannot accept that human beings are enslaved, experimented on, used for food, killed or tortured or any other such demeaning actions that...

The Fire of the Goddess by Dr. David Frawley Topic: Yoga
I first discovered the Goddess as the muse that arose as part of my youthful poetic inspirations before I had even heard of the path of Yoga or studied any eastern spiritual traditions. The muse is the intimation of beauty and mystery who guides us along our path beyond the world of necessity to the...

The Ayurvedic Effects of Asana Practice by Dr. David Frawley Topic: Yoga
According to the philosophy of Yoga, the physical body is a manifestation of consciousness. It is a crystallization of karmic (behavioral) patterns created by the mind. The key to working with the body, therefore, is to understand the consciousness behind it, much of which lies outside our ordinary ...

Tantra and its Misconceptions: Reclaiming the Essence from the I by Dr. David Frawley Topic: Yoga
Perhaps nothing is more exotic, dramatic and sensational in India’s Yoga traditions than is the practice of Tantra. No other approach to Yoga has gained such a fascination for the modern mind and its seeking of the bizarre, the entertaining and the enigmatic.

TESTIMONIALS

I really like the website that you have. It is quite easy to move around it. Although looking for books is not that easy, but I was satisfied. I also liked the service from your team. I received the books early in the week and was glad that I didn't have to sweat waiting for it since I am in New Delhi only a short while. Otherwise, do keep the website going. I hope you will be very successful. I will slowly start reading the books and enjoy them. Best regards...
