On Svadhyaya - Self-Study

Shanna Small from the Ashtanga Picture Project interviewed me on svadhyaya. This important term, that occurs several times in the Yoga Sutra is usually translated as ‘self-study’ but in yoga the term is narrowly defined and has important connotations.

Q: I, like many people, was told that, Svadhyaya simply meant self-study and that any studying we did of ourselves was self-study. Recently, It has come to my attention, that this is incorrect.

Here is an article from me on Yoga Meditation, published in the Sutra Journal. The Sutra Journal is a curated journal on art, culture and dharma, bridging eternal truths and modern voices.

My article shows that in ancient days Hatha-, Raja- and Bhakti Yoga were not separate disciplines but nothing but the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yogic meditation.

The article then assesses what determines the speed of your spiritual evolution and juxtaposes what holds you back (i.e. the three types of karma) versus what propels you forward (sophistication and intensity of practice, and grace).

Enjoy the read:
