No Mind Retreat

The World of Yoga-Raja Yoga-No Mind Yoga

Sage Patanjali, one of the greatest masters of ancient Indian medicine, yoga, dance and languages, was no longer human when he transmitted the aphorisms that came later to be recorded and popularised as Raja Yoga, or Royal Yoga. The zenith of Yogic philosophy and the foundation of Yogic psychology, Raja Yoga is a grand Yogic treatise of the mind and techniques to achieve higher consciousness states.

Patanjali was communicating from a non-human language, through ‘telepathy’ as per the ancient record, with the students he had chosen as recipients for the Raja Yoga Sutras, the aphorisms of Yoga. Raja Yoga is also called Ashtanga Yoga, which translates as 8 Limbs Yoga. This ancient Raja-Asthanga Yoga must not be confused with the popular and modern Mysore Ashtanga system of asanas.

The very essence of Raja Yoga lies in the understanding of what it means to be human and how, given that understanding, one can willfully transcend unto higher states.
