The Yoga Sutras: Demystifying Patanjali

With Nayaswami Krishna Das and Nayaswami Sagar

September 19 - 22, 2024

Based on the book: Demystifying Patanjali: The Yoga Sutras (Aphorisms) –The Wisdom of Paramhansa Yogananda as Presented by his Direct Disciple, Swami Kriyananda

About 2200 years ago, a great spiritual master of India named Patanjali described the process of Self-Realization and presented humanity with a clear-cut, step-by-step outline of how all truth-seekers and saints achieve divine union. He called this universal inner experience and process “yoga” or “union.” His collection of profound aphorisms-a true world scripture-has been dubbed Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.

Dive into the Yogic Teachings: explore the 8-limbed path Patanjali outlined—using introspective exercises, affirmations, visualizations, discussion, and meditation practices.

Within these universal teachings, you can find your own unique path to the experience of your divine nature. Learn how to:

  • Direct energy in beneficial ways, using subtle practices of purity, contentment, simplicity, self-study, and devotion
  • Explore the qualities of non-violence, non-lying, non-stealing, non-sensuality, and non-attachment
  • Promote stillness through a steady, comfortable posture
  • Control your energy and bring it into your center
  • Free your mind from distractions
  • Focus your mind with laser-beam power
  • Go beyond concentration into absorption
  • Move toward the experience of oneness with all that is
