Svadhyaya and the Poetry of Self
6 August, 2018
The 3 practices that make up Kriya Yoga (Tapas, Svadhyaya, Isvara Pranidhana-YS II-1) are central to the study of yoga. The classical application of Svadhyaya is to consult the sacred texts to gather definitions of Self that help you distinguish between the little you (self) and you as sacred Seer to the world (Self). In this podcast David reads bhakti poetry as an example of how the student of yoga can start their own practice of Svadhyaya and begin to contemplate the sacred seer Self.
