Event description

Description

n enlivening introduction to the eastern spiritual wisdom and practice.

Bhakti yoga is not an armchair philosophy, a religious doctrine or a Sunday ritual. It is a way of life. This course is for anyone who wants to know about the philosophy and practices of the bhakti tradition.

Yoga is more than just a physical exercise. The word “yoga” comes from the Sanskrit root Yuj which means to link up with, or combine. Bhakti is derived from the Sanskrit word bhaj, which means – loving service. Bhakti-yoga means to connect to the Supreme by means of loving devotional service.

The Bhagavad Gita, the core spiritual text for ISKCON, describes a variety of yoga practices. The path of bhakti-yoga is developed through a variety of activities. These include mantra meditation or the chanting of the names of God. The chanting is done either individually on beads (japa) or in a community by chanting mantras accompanied by music (kirtan). The study of sacred texts such as the Bhagavad-gita and Srimad Bhagavatam, associating with like-minded spiritual aspirants, eating sanctified vegetarian food, and living in a way that upholds the principles of truthfulness, mercy, austerity, and cleanliness, are all core practices for a life of a follower of bhakti.
