Yoga this Week – January 5, 2014 = Regular Schedule Resumes!!!

“The goal of Yoga is not to obtain something that is lacking: it is the realization of an already present reality. Yoga practice removes the obstacles that obstruct the experience of “Moksha” true freedom”   (Jaganath Carrera, Inside the Yoga Sutras).

I wish all of you a happy, healthy, joy filled 2014!   In keeping with the tradition of studying  yogic philosophies in the first part of the year,  for the next several weeks, we will be focusing on part of the Yoga Sutras called The Kleshas.  The Kleshas are known to be the misperceptions that keep us bound  and are often depicted as a tree that at the root of all our suffering is Avidya (spiritual ignorance) or misperception;  believing  the unreal to be the real or the impermanent to be permanent.

Avidya is the core klesha from which all the others arise.

Avidya – Ignorance

Asmita – Ego

Raga – Attachment to Pleasure

Dvesa – Aversion to Pain

Adhinivhesa – Fear of Death 

Think about the Kleshas as all the misperceptions you have gathered in the course of your lifetime.  Some are born in our childhood, some we have been born into this life with.  Some are very subtle and some are very gross.  The yoga sutras tell us that if we are aware of these Kleshas at the root, and to not allow them to take hold in our psyches, we can release their power.  Together over the next few weeks, we will explore yogic tools that help us to find freedom from our Kleshas.

HAPPENINGS…
