The talk will be from 1-3 pm, is free and open to all. Our speaker, Mr. U. S. Pandey, a Theosophist visiting from India, describes his talk this way:
The philosophy of yoga deals with some of the greatest mysteries of life and the Universe.
The most important purpose of life is to become integrated and whole in our thought, feelings and emotions and to align these with our higher Self. Yoga provides a scientific way to attain this wholeness. Patanjali, the great sage of ancient India, compiled the process of practicing yoga in the form of sutras or aphorisms. These sutras describe eight-limbed yoga which is also called Raj-Yoga. Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras stand out as the most authoritative and useful.
In the talk the concept of Yoga in general and some Yoga-Sutras will be covered.
