About the book

The word yoga and the various concepts associated with it are being interpreted and understood with great interest the world over especially in recent years. This work by a noted research scholar, Dr. T. N. Mishra explores the meanings of the word yoga and its moral and philosophical annotations, and conducts an intensive study of the philosophies and practices that bear reference to it. A thorough research, Yoga-Tantra and Sensuousness in Art goes into the theoretical foundations of Yoga, tracing ists roots to the sacred scriptures and explaining the goal of Yoga, the discipline it involves, Yoga psychology, its techniques and stages, and classification and practice of Yoga as Mantra-Yoga, Laya-Yoga, Hatha-Yoga and Raja-Yoga. It comprehensively examines the aim and philosophy of Yoga-Tantra and the way to awaken the Kundalini through the cakras practicing Yoga-sadhana of the Natha siddhas (the ulta-sadhana) and Yoga sadhana as found in Vaisnava and Buddhist Sahajiya. Citing interesting examples, it importantly deals with Yoga and Tantra as reflected in Indian art: the impact of the philosophy of Yoga-Tantra with its subtle sensuality on Indian secular and religious architecture and sculpture.

Abounding in illustrations and extensive in notes and references to ancient scholarly treatises and exponents of Yoga and to modern researches on the subject, the book will interest all scholars of Indian art, philosophy and spirituality and appeal to general readers on Yoga as well.

    i love this. i practice yoga daily, just maknig up my own routines & stuff, and if i haven't practiced in a few days i'll notice some tightness in certain areas.tightness, to most people, is a sign of discomfort or weakness. but i see it as a chance to start again, to feel the strech-transformation that yoga provides all over's not like i'm starting from scratch, but this little tightness reminder keeps me in check. i tend to get comfortable (& stuck) in routines/habit; when i let myself get a little tight, when i let myself vary from my routine, i am able to keep my practice new & refreshed.habit & routine can be great, but they can also be limiting. i used to treat change & discomfort as enemies; to an extent, i still do. but i'm working on going with the flow, on excepting change & discomfort as part of the random, chaotic order of the world.i know i'm rambling (i often do), but i just want to thank you for this awesome video post. it really validates what i'm trying to do right now to lean into my discomfort, instead of letting it lean into're awesome

  7. Thank you so much Er

    Thank you so much Eric for the beautiful <a href="">inrteprttaeion</a> of the planets (and the lead-in to the topic of tantra). Vesta, Chiron in Pisces & Jupiter description all speak to what it is I have been in process with and have made a huge breakthrough with devotion to healing the relationship to Existance. Having grown up Catholic, it's been a challenge to find a new way of relating, free of the burden of expectations and obligations, to ideas of God(des), Universe, Existance. This has been a time of breaking through all that and now able to regard myself as part of that Beauty of Existance. So perfectly phrased.Enjoyed the interview and look forward to seeing where it goes. There was a very important part of the tantra I found missing that may be covered in the next one. Have to wait and see.
