WORKSHOP: MANTRA IN ACTION: HOW SOUND CAN TRANSFORM YOUR PRACTICE
In Patañjali’s Yoga Sūtra 2.1 tapaḥ-svādhyāya-īśvarapraṇidhānāni-kriyāyogaḥ, we can see that kriya yoga is made up of three components.
Vyāsa defines svādhyāya as japa, the repetition of mantra or sacred sound, and if followed they can transform anyone’s life.
In this workshop we will use āsana, prānāyāma and mantra to demonstrate how kriya yoga can work as the most suitable vehicle of yoga for us living our modern day lives.
Vacaspati Misra quotes in the key karma yoga verse from the Bhagavad Gītā: ‘You have the right to perform your duties, but not to their fruits: do not consider yourself to be the doer of your activities, and do not become attached to inaction.’ (Ch2.47).
