Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā with Robert Moses
Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā (Light on Hatha Yoga) is a classic fifteenth-century Sanskrit manual on haṭha yoga, written by Svātmārāma. It is among the most influential surviving texts on haṭha yoga, being one of the three classic texts alongside the Gheranda Samhita and the Shiva Samhita. Nearly all of modern yoga is based on ‘watered down’ teachings in these texts. We will read the text in English and discuss the teachings and practices with as much current scientific verification as possible. Much of the language in the text is esoteric and relies upon commentary from practitioners. The ultimate lofty goal of the practices are to attain the state of ‘unmani avastha’ or the complete cessation of ‘mind’. One needs to proceed cautiously. The Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā offers sensible knowledgeable guidance.
