Book Description :

The first two limbs of the eight-fold path of yoga sutras—the basic text for classical yoga—are examined in this spiritual guide to the practice of yoga. Foundational to all yogic thought, they are considered to be the guidelines to the yoga way of living that free individuals to take ownership of their lives, direct them toward the fulfillment they seek, and gain the skills to choose attitude, thought, and action. The first five guidelines are referred to as the yamas—a Sanskrit word that translates to "restraints"—and encompass nonviolence, truthfulness, not stealing, nonexcess, and nonpossessiveness. The last five are referred to as the niyamas, or observances—purity, contentment, self-discipline, self-study, and surrender. A self-study section at the end of each chapter may also be used by instructors for group discussion.

Book Description :

"Finally, a truly accessible, comprehensive guide on how to apply yoga's yamas and niyamas to everyday life. Both for the yogi and non-yogi alike, this beautiful manual has powerful teachings about relating to self and others. I can't wait to share it with my yoga students and yoga teacher trainees." ~Stacey Vespaziani, E-RYT and owner of South Hills Power Yoga and Bloomfield Yoga The Yamas and Niyamas are yoga's essential, ethical principles originally mentioned in the Yoga Sutras, the first written explanation of yoga compiled by Patanjali over 2,000 years ago. In the West, yoga is mostly known as a form of exercise, though the Sutras say yoga is an eight-part system working in unison to control the mind. These "limbs" as they are called in the Sutras include the Yamas and Niyamas, breathwork, yoga postures, and various stages of meditation. The Yamas (how to treat others) and the Niyamas (how to care for yourself) include values such as peace, truth, gratitude, and contentment. When practiced, they make life more manageable and meaningful. Although similar to other moral or religious codes, the Yamas and Niyamas are more freeing than restrictive and a thought process over a hard set of rules. They are basically 10 ways to be a better person. YOGA'S YAMAS AND NIYAMAS is a practical, relatable yoga philosophy text. Informational and instructional, this book is for anyone curious about yoga philosophy, self-improvement, or is seeking more out of life. It is also of value to yoga instructors who want to incorporate yoga philosophy into their teaching or yoga teacher trainees who are deepening their understanding of the first two limbs of yoga. In this book is a chapter for each Yama and Niyama explaining what it is as well as a physical yoga practice, consideration, mantra, journal prompt, and a personal account of how the author used the principle in her own life. This book can be applied as a textbook, resource, or workbook to live life with peace, purpose, awareness, and accountability. This book comes with online yoga videos to physically practice the principles: courtneyseiberling.com/yoga

Book Description :

Anyone who has practiced Yoga has felt the joy and peace that can come from the discipline, yet as any passionate Yoga Instructor will tell you, the yoga is not complete without the spiritual and ethical disciplines to guide you. Anand Gupta brings the mind and the focus to this concept in this 4th volume in the expansive "School of Yoga" collection, based on the Ashtanga Yoga, also known as the Eight-Limbed or Raja Yoga, based on the Yogastura as codified by Patanjali around 400 C.E. Unveiling the first two limbs known as the Yamas, or what not to do, and the Niyamas, or what is to be done, in the Yogasutra, Anand Gupta explains how the Yogi must incorporate these deep disciplines in their daily lives. The five Yamas listed and defined in this book offer a set of activities that must be avoided by the Yogi while the Niyamas are a set of observances that promote self-discipline and improve will power. Together these help in bringing the Yogi closer to the goal of Yoga: unity of the body and mind.

Book Description :

Revealing the underlying essence of the Yamas and Niyamas. A profound, unconventional, and inspiring exposition on the spirit of the Yogic Dharma principles. You've probably heard or read about the yogic dharma principles of the Yamas and Niyamas before. But was it life-changing? Did it create any lasting impact on your mind? The truth of the matter is that nobody cares about the Yamas and Niyamas. Reading about them is often tedious, dense, and impractical. So, why is there another book on them? Because this book is remarkably different--it's not what you think it will be. No mindlessly parroting with the typical superficial observances, abstentions, codes of restraint, "dos," and "don'ts." No rhetoric concerning how practicing celibacy and faithfully reading archaically translated scriptures are the cornerstones of proper Yoga and spiritual practice. No attempt to instill outdated and dogmatic morals or ethnics into you. Here, we will go beyond an exposition on ethical or moral concepts, and even beyond typical yogic understandings, into a deeper and unified framework of understanding. When these first two limbs of the Yoga Sutras are presented in a distorted, westernized, or over-theorized manner, which is oftentimes embellished to fit today's "self-help chocolate" reading culture, they help very few genuine seekers advance in their spiritual journey of self-transcendence. But enough is enough. Prepare yourself for an insightful, pragmatic, and spiritually maturing exposition on Yogic Dharma principles--like you've never seen before. You'll experience a total recontextualization of the Yamas and Niyamas, and rather than applying them as the moral and ethical bedrock of Yoga practice, they will be used as tools for Self-Realization. Now that's what a real twist is, and hopefully, one that will unleash a powerful roar in your heart--the roar of Freedom!

Book Description :

This book begins by explaining the concept of ethics in the context of yoga practice and spiritual meditation, and then goes on the explain in detail all of the ten points of Yama-Niyama. Each point is clarified with examples from psychology and philosophy, both Eastern and Western, in their historical and also modern context. In addition the author provides myriad insights into the fundamentals of yoga itself, the structure of the mind, the cakra system as an emotional map of the body, and the purpose of meditation. The basic premise of the book is that Yama-Niyama are designed to create the balanced mental state necessary for the expansion of mind that is yoga: they help to produce an integrated personality and the subtle perception and empathy necessary to facilitate the fullest possible expression of human capacity both individually and collectively. Presented to be of interest not only to yoga students, teachers and spiritual seekers, but also as a study of the concept of ethics itself within a wider context, the author has made an invaluable contribution to the understanding of Yama-Niyama and the inner motivation of their design.

Book Description :

This thesis consists of ten short stories that are structured, formatted and thematically aligned with the yamas and niyamas, the ten moral tenants of yoga philosophy. The yamas and niyamas are the first two limbs of Patinjali's eightfold path, or the path to enlightenment through yogic practices. The yamas account for five principles that guide ethical living and instruct followers on how to interact with others and the world. The yamas consist of: ahimsa (non-violence), satya (truthfulness), asteya (non-stealing), brahmacharya (non-excess), and aparigraha (non-possessiveness). The niyamas are guidelines for personal practices that relate to, develop, and enhance one's relationship with self. The niyamas are: saucha (purity), santosha (contentment), tapas (self-discipline), svadhyaya (self-study), and ishvara prandihana (surrender). Each story in this collection loosely correlates with and comments on its assigned yama or niyama. As a collection, the stories function as glimpses of being - fractal pieces of life from inside differing existential or personal crises. The characters face moral, personal and spiritual dilemmas, often grappling with ghosts from the past, striving to make sense of what is through varying tools and coping mechanisms. The highest goal for this thesis is to act as commentary on the modern condition by using the spiritual and existential lens to diagnose and categorize modern afflictions. Some characters reach towards being - towards harmony or enlightenment - as dressing for their wounds. Others merely grapple with their conditions of dis-ease. Still others contribute to, and worsen, the disharmony. Guided by ten moral principles, these stories stand alone and work together to lead readers into the depths of varying states of being, while shedding light on modernity's inherent conflict with ancient spiritual practices.

Book Description :

Presenting ways in which Restorative Yoga can contribute to healing emotional wounds, this book invites yoga teachers, therapists and practitioners to consider the psychological impact of ethnic and race-based stress and trauma. It aids in the process of uncovering, examining, and healing one's own emotional wounds and offers insight into avoiding wounding or re-wounding others. The book describes how race-based traumatic stress differs from PTSD and why a more targeted approach to treatment is necessary, as well as what can trigger it. It also considers the implications of an increasingly racially and ethnically diverse and global yoga community, as well as the importance of creating conscious yoga communities of support and connection, where issues of race and ethnicity are discussed openly, non-defensively and constructively. By providing a therapeutic structure that assists those directly and indirectly impacted by ethnic and race-based stress and trauma, Restorative Yoga for Ethnic and Race-Based Stress and Trauma provides valuable tools for aiding in the processing of stressful experiences and in trauma recovery.

Book Description :

Between 1915 and 1941, Tagore (1861-1941) and Gandhi (1869-1948) differed and argued about many things of personal, national, and international significance---satyagraha, non-cooperation, the boycott and burning of foreign cloth, the efficacy of fasting as a means of resistance and Gandhi’s mantra connecting “swaraj” and “charkha”. The author tracks the development of this dialogue and argues that the debate was about more fundamental issues, such as the nature of truth and swaraj/freedom and the possibilities of untruth that Tagore saw in Gandhi’s movements for truth and freedom. Puri shows that the differences between the two men’s perspectives came from differently negotiated relationships to (and understandings of) tradition and modernity. Tagore was part of the Bengal renaissance and powerfully influenced by the idea that the Enlightenment consisted in the freedom of the individual to reason for herself. Gandhi, on the other hand, remained close to the Indian philosophical tradition which linked individual freedom to moral progress. Puri points out that Tagore cannot, however, be unreflectively assimilated to the Enlightenment project of Western modernity, for he came fairly close to Gandhi in rejecting the anthropocentricism of modernity and shared Gandhi’s belief in an enchanted cosmos. The only single-authored volume on the Tagore-Gandhi debate, this book is a welcome addition to the existing literature.

Book Description :

The Sāṃkhyayoga institution of Kāpil Maṭh is a religious organisation with a small tradition of followers which emerged in the last decade of the nineteenth century and the first decades of the twentieth century in Bengal in India around the renunciant and yogin Hariharānanda Āraṇya. This tradition developed during the same period in which modern yoga was born and forms a chapter in the expansion of yoga traditions in modern Hinduism. The book analyses the yoga teaching of Hariharānanda Āraṇya (1869-1947) and the Kāpil Maṭh tradition, its origin, history and contemporary manifestations, and this tradition’s connection to the expansion of yoga and the Yogasūtra in modern Hinduism. The Sāṃkhyayoga of the Kāpil Maṭh tradition is based on the Pātañjalayogaśāstra, on a number of texts in Sanskrit and Bengali written by their gurus, and on the lifestyle of the renunciant yogin living isolated in a cave. The book investigates Hariharānanda Āraṇya’s connection to pre-modern yoga traditions and the impact of modern production and transmission of knowledge on his interpretations of yoga. The book connects the Kāpil Maṭh tradition to the nineteenth century transformations of Bengali religious culture of the educated upper class that led to the production of a new type of yogin. The book analyses Sāṃkhyayoga as a living tradition, its current teachings and practices, and looks at what Sāṃkhyayogins do and what Sāṃkhyayoga is as a yoga practice. A valuable contribution to recent and ongoing debates, this book will be of interest to academics in the fields of Religious Studies, Anthropology, Asian Studies, Indology, Indian philosophy, Hindu Studies and Yoga Studies.

Book Description :

In Glimpses of Raja Yoga, Vimala Thakar introduces the basic concepts of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras by focusing on a different sutra, or aphorism, in each of the twelve chapters. In her opening chapter, she presents the historical and cultural background of Patanjali’s Raja Yoga. Chapter 2 contains an eloquent invocation of the dimension of Silence—the meditative state that one enters with the stilling of the mind. Chapters 3–6 examine the ethical principles and observances (the yamas and niyamas) that form the foundation of a healthy spiritual practice. Here Vimala discusses the importance of ahimsa (non-violence) and satya (truthfulness), and offers a radical interpretation of brahmacarya based on her understanding of Sanskrit. Chapter 7 concerns the kleshas or causes of suffering such as avidya (ignorance) and asmita (egotism). Chapter 8 discriminates between dharana (meditation with deliberate focus) and dhyana (effortless meditation), and reflects Vimala’s own experience. Chapter 9 describes the relation of prakriti (matter) and purusha (spirit) according to Patanjali. Chapters 10–12 describe the ultimate goal of the yogic journey—the absolute freedom of samadhi.

Book Description :

Description: In this study, the author discusses the sadhana presented by the Bhagavata-purana and this is essentially the bhakti-marga, the way of love. After some preliminary remarks about the puranas in general and the Bhagavata-purana in particular, the author attempts to describe the sadhaka (man as a pilgrim), the sadhya (god as the supreme lover), and the sadhana (bhakti as the universal and the most effective way to attain god). The book then draws the attention of the reader to the possible obstacles he may encounter in his spiritual journey, while at the same time assuring him that the guidance of a good guide, the fellowship of other devotees and some other aids will assist him in his pilgrimage. Love is not only the way, but also the goal (Prayojana), and hence the study concludes by presenting moksa as sa-prema-bhakti-yoga, that is a union of loving devotion, between god and man, Bhagavan and his bhakta.
