The Essence Of The Yoga Sutras with Dr. David Frawley

Many people talk about the Yoga Sutras and several modern versions have come out. Yet the deeper meditation aspects of the Yoga Sutras are rarely explained on a practical level, or the yogic view of mind and consciousness, though these form the foundation of the teachings.

SUNDAY MAY 30TH 11-1PM (HST)

The Essence of the Yoga Sutras: The First Sixteen Sutras

Many people talk about the Yoga Sutras and several modern versions have come out. Yet the deeper meditation aspects of the Yoga Sutras are rarely explained on a practical level, or the yogic view of mind and consciousness, though these form the foundation of the teachings.

We will examine first sixteen sutras of the Yoga Sutras from the original Sanskrit according to respected commentators and gurus, ancient and modern. Topics: The Yoga Tradition, Role of Patanjali, Yoga as Samadhi, Abiding in the Purusha, Nature and Functions of the Mind (Chitta), Nature of Yoga Practice (Abhyasa, Yoga Sadhana), Discrimination and Detachment (Viveka and Vairagya).

Students are not required to know Sanskrit and we will explain the meaning of terms in detail.

Dr. David Frawley (Vamadeva Shastri) has studied the Yoga Sutras in the original Sanskrit along with traditional commentaries for several decades, including with many gurus in India. He has a Doctor of Letters (D.Litt) from SVYASA, the main deemed Yoga University in India, and a Padma Bhushan, the third highest civilian award of the govt. of India for his work as a Vedic educator. He will examine the Yoga Sutras in terms of Samkhya and Vedanta, focusing on the Yogic approach to meditation. This is the first time he has offered such a class in webinar form.
