Some Responses to Classical Yoga in The Modern Period
Some Responses to Classical Yoga in The Modern Period
Description
About the Book

Classical Yoga may be defined as yoga that is based on the instructions of the Siva-samhita, Gheranda-samhit, and Patanjala Yoga – Sutra. The word ‘yoga’ is derived from two roots, one meaning ‘concentration’ and the other meaning ‘union’ – that is, the union of the individual self and the Supreme Self. The word ‘yoga’ is derived from the same Sanskrit root as the English word ‘yoke’, meaning ‘to join’. According to Patanjala Yoga-Sutra, yoga is cittavrtti nirodha – that is, restraining the citta, or mind, from taking various forms. Here yoga means concentration. But in Raja- yoga, which is traditionally considered a branch of the Tantra - sastra, yoga means both concentration and union, in the sense of union of the individual self with the Supreme Self. Again, yoga is broadly divided into two parts, Hatha-yoga and Raja-yoga. Hatha-yoga, also known as Kriya-yoga, is primarily concerned with keeping the body strong and healthy.

Publisher’s Note

This book is the upshot of a Seminar on Some Responses to Classical Yoga in the Modern Period which was organized by the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture, Gol Park, Kolkata, on 3 and 4 January, 2009 in the Vivekananda Hall.

The papers which were presented at the Seminar, generated much interest and enthusiasm among the audience. And to meet the growing interests of the people worldwide in the yoga philosophy, the Institute decided to publish the papers, along with the discussions which followed the paper-reading sessions, in the form of a full-fledged book.

The word ‘yoga’ means the cessation of all modifications of citta or the intellect. A Dictionary of Philosophy interprets yoga as ‘One of the systems of Indian philosophy. The old school was closely related to the Samkhya, but specialized in the cultivation and interpretation of the meditational exercises of yoga. Its teaching was first systematized in the Yoga-Sutras attributed to Patanjali (possibly 4th or 5th century AD) and the philosophical implications of the Sutras were discussed by Vyasa (possibly 500 AD) in his commentary.’

Since it was a two –day Seminar, the first day was a ceremonial one which began at 5:30 p.m. with a Vedic chanting by the monks and brahmacarins. It was followed by an address of welcome by the Secretary of the Institute.

Then Swami Prabhananda, the General Secretary of the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission, delivered his inaugural speech.

Dr B R Sharma delivered the Keynote address. Dr Ramaranjan Mukherji who presided over the Seminar, gave his presidential address. This Programme concluded at 7:30 p.m.

On 4 January, there were four academic sessions which began at 9:30 a.m. The ten subject-experts from home and abroad presented their respective papers during these sessions. The first paper of the Session was presented by Swami Bhajananandaji Maharaj of the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission, Belur Math. The curtain of the seminar fell with the presentation of a paper by Swami Atmapriyananda of Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission, Belur Math.

All such highly learned papers brought to the fore the various facets of the ancient yoga and illumined the minds of the listeners who attended the Seminar.

It would be deemed a worthwhile endeavour if this publication fulfils the aspirations of the readers.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
