Mystics and Yoga
– enlightened moments in the yoga tradition

Lördagen den 2 december kl. 13:00 - 16:00 på studio Zinkensdamm, Ringvägen 9 d.

The practice of yoga has always had a mystical side; to experience more than what we can just see, touch or what is even called the other world. The great yogi Krishnamacharya, 1888-1989, had such experiences which is also an important part of his religious tradition Śrīvaiṣṇavism.

This hindu-religion originates in Tamil Nadu, South India, and Jens has recently done a research paper at the Copenhagen University on the poet-saint Nammāḻvār from the 9th century, who is 

Srivaisnavism's main source in devotional service to Viṣṇu, bhakti-yoga. Looking into the Srivaisnava tradition will give us another perspective of Krishnamacharya than we usually hear of through the legend of Aṣṭāṅga yoga. 

Jens will this afternoon talk about mysticism and yoga with presentation of the sages Nathamuni, 10th century, and Nammāḻvār who recovered ancient knowledge in enlightened moments or trances, similar to Krishnamacharya's re-discovery of Aṣṭāṅga yoga in the lost text Yogarahasya, Secrets of Yoga.
