The morning presentation explores dharana and dhyana through the philosophy of Patanjali, the Yoga Yajnavalkya and the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Part two discusses the six virtues and how through them we overcome illusion.

  • Dharana is said to be of 5 types. Listen to them all one by one. The Dharana on the 5 deities (Devas or representations of the divine) in the regions.
  • The Yoga Yajnavalkya on Dharana Chapter 9: Verse 2: The two types of Dhyana
  1. Saguna – with attributes
  2. Niguna – without attributes

The afternoon presentation explores the six-fold virtues (shat sampat) through sutras:

The Sutras explored are:

  • 1:13 Exertion to acquire sthiti or a tranquil state of mind devoid of fluctuations is called practice
  • 1:14 That practice when continued for a long time without break and with devotion becomes firm in foundation
  • 1:15 When the mind loses all desire for objects seen or described in the scriptures it acquires a state of utter desirelessness
  • 1:31 Sorrow, dejection, restlessness of body, inhalation and exhalation arise from (previous distractions)
