Heart and Purpose of Yoga
The Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita are the two classical texts of Yoga. But they are very different from each other and have a quite different emphasis on the kind of yoga necessary for a radical transformation of the self for spiritual awakening to take place. In this workshop we will discuss various kinds of yoga and the many obstacles that present themselves in the path of a searcher, and how to overcome them.
Welcome to attend two magical evenings with one of the greatest scholars on Yoga and Spiritual wisdom of today.
Welcome to read more about the teachings with Ravi from my lastest visit to Krotona, Ojai.
Ravi Ravindra was born in India and studied there until a Master of Technology degree. Then he studied in Canada where he received an M.A. in Philosophy and an M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Physics. Now he is a Professor Emeritus at Dalhousie University, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he served for many years as a professor in three departments: Physics, Philosophy, and Comparative Religion. He was a Member of the Institute of Advanced Study in Princeton, a Fellow of the Indian Institute of Advanced Study in Shimla, and the Founding Director of the Threshold Award for Integrative Knowledge. He has been a member of the Board of Judges for the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion. Ravindra’s spiritual search has led him to the teachings of J. Krishnamurti, G. Gurdjieff, Yoga, Zen, and a deep immersion in the mystical teachings of the Indian and Christian classical traditions. Among his books are “The Yoga of the Christ”, “Science and the Sacred”, “Heart Without Measure: Gurdjieff Work with Madame de Salzmann”, “J. Krishnamurti: Two Birds on One Tree”, “Wisdom of Patañjali’s Yoga Sutras”, “The Pilgrim Soul: A Path to the Sacred Transcending World Religions” and “The Bhagavad Gita; A Guide to Navigating the Battle of Life.”
