Description:

This is an inspiring and thorough study of the most important text for the yogis. You will learn practical tools to improve your own yoga practice and your spiritual journey.

Raja Yoga, the royal path of mind control, is the most comprehensive and scientific approach to God-Realization. The precepts and doctrines of this ancient science were first compiled and explained by Patanjali Maharishi, the greatest psychologist of all time. Never has man’s mind been so completely analyzed. Never has the process of eliminating human suffering been so succinctly presented. The methods of Raja Yoga are profound and timeless. They are the most useful techniques available to modern man beset by the tremendous stresses and strains of our competitive society.

The third chapter – Vibhuti Pada, which will be the premise of this course, discusses the practices of Dharana – concentration, Dhyana – meditation and Samadhi – the super conscious state and various kinds of Samyama on external objects, mind, internal chakras, and on several objects, and to acquire various Siddhis or powers.
