Patanjali Yoga Sutras: Teachings from the Kaivalya Pada on Liberation
6 WEEKLY SESSIONS, Tuesdays, 6:30-8:30pm ET
The final chapter of Patanjali’s Raja Yoga Sutras discusses Kaivalya, liberation or independence. The full-blown Yogi develops perfect discriminative wisdom or the ability to distinguish the Real from the unreal. He is no longer affected by the three gunas of nature and can distinguish Purusha or pure consciousness from Prakriti or matter.
