Patanjali was a genius, the Albert Einstein of Yoga and every word in his carefully created Yoga Sutras is a sparkling diamond and threads on from one to the next, not one word should be missed, and there is not one word missing. Everything that needs to be said about the True Life, about Yoga, is found within the Yoga Sutras. They deal with your entire being, your whole physiological makeup and with ardent study, you will come to understand so much about yourself and thus the entirety of creation. This understanding will help you return to your roots, your pristine innocence and understanding.
The Yoga Sutras are not a philosophy to study dryly, to only think about – then there is no possibility of your transformation. The sutras are more like a science, an alchemy, that one must practice and participate in. And if one practices diligently, much real understanding can arise within you.
It starts this autumn Anand Nigam with an online study and meditation course on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Over ten Thursday evenings (7.30 to 9pm) and ten Tuesday mornings (7 to 8am) we will be studying and meditating on the Yoga Sutras. Each Thursday evening, we will recite and study three or four sutras, meditate over them together and the following Tuesday morning after guidance and reviewing them, sit silently.
