Example text

Traditionally, however, Hatha-Yoga has always been looked upon as a ladder to Raja-Yoga, that is, to Self-realization through meditation and ecstasy. The contemporary Hatha-Yoga master B. K.

For the awakening of the kundalini-shakti, which is the goal of Hatha-Yoga, was central to Tantrie esotericism long before the emergence of Hatha-Yoga.

28) Vyasa’s advice to give both knowledge and experience their due weight reflects the ever-present concern of the yogin to practice balance. Practice that is not supported by a solid understanding of the Yoga tradition is apt to produce self-delusion. On the other hand, study that is not anchored in practice is likely to lead to a false sense of accomplishment without yielding any spiritual gain. In the final analysis, however, Yoga puts the heart above the head, experience above thought. Hence, since the earliest times, the Yoga scriptures and authorities have always stressed the necessity for guidance.

Is Yoga then a form of religion or mysticism? It is not possible to give a simple answer to this question, because the Yoga tradition is vast and complex and includes many approaches, some of which even contradict each other when viewed from an outward perspective.
