Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati (Author)
Synopsis

Vol:1 ISBN: 9789384753207; Vol:2 ISBN: 9789384753283.

During the World Yoga Convention and Golden Jubilee celebrations of the Bihar School of Yoga, held in Munger, Bihar, in October 2013, Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati announced a new direction for yoga. After fifty years of propagating yoga worldwide, the Bihar School of Yoga enters the next fifty years with a new understanding and approach.

This approach became apparent in the first month-long Yoga Instructor Course conducted in August 2014 at Ganga Darshan Vishwa Yogapeeth under the direct guidance and inspiration of Swami Niranjan. Over a series of talks to residents and students of the ashram he outlined the future direction of Satyananda Yoga-Bihar Yoga. He expounded the origin of yoga and its three distinct periods of development in history. He described the role and contribution of exponents of the various branches of yoga, contextualizing the contemporary understanding of yoga. This theme was further expanded during the 'Ashram Life Yoga Satsang' program held in December 2014.

Yoga Chakra presents this innovative and groundbreaking vision of yoga for the coming age. The reader is invited to embark on a journey of discovery into a new dimension of yoga through these lectures.

In the ongoing effort to develop the next chapter of yoga. Swami Niranjanananda gave a series of satsangs during the Adhyatma Samskara Sadhana Satra. Held from 17th to 25th July at Ganga Darshan Vishwa Yogapeeth, it was the first course of its kind. The aim was to take yoga practitioners beyond asana and pranayama into a broader understanding and application of yoga. They were given the tools to develop the ability to practise the yoga that can transform the mind and behaviour, thus creating a new lifestyle and resulting in harmony within oneself and in society.

Swamiji explained that the path is laid out in the yamas and niyamas, the positive attributes of life. Usually people refer to the yamas and niyamas listed by Sage Patanjali, but Swamiji delved into those presented in other yogic and spiritual literatures. Two yamas: happiness and forgiveness, and two niyamas: japa and namaskara were taken up. Participants were also given questionnaires and asked to maintain a spiritual diary so they can cultivate these four qualities in their life as a sadhana.

This book presents the satsangs and also includes the questionnaires.
