Monthly Study Group

Sunday, August 7th
1:30 PM – 3:00 PM

SVB's lecture at Banyantree 14.jpg

Join Anil Saigal and fellow aspirants in a discussion of the leading scriptures of yoga philosophy and spirituality.


Each session ends with a brief guided meditation. 

We will continue reading "The Unadorned Thread of Yoga - Yoga Sutras by Patanjali in English" by Salvatore Zambito which contains a collection of the english translation of each sutra by the most significant commentators in history.  Salvatore is a past student of Swami Veda and his work was done under Swami Veda's guidance. We will continue reading from Sutra I-14 onwards.


We will also reference Swami Veda Bharati's (unpublished) commentary on Chapter 1 titled Samadhi Pada (On Non-Cognitive Absorption).


Patanjali's Yoga Sutras is THE undisputed guide to yoga philosophy and practices for attaining enlightenment, and is a "must-read" for all serious meditators.

Two of the commentaries also recommended by Swami Veda are:

1) "Yoga Philosophy of Patanjali with Bhasvati" by Swami Hariharananda Aranya,

2) "Yogasutra of Patanjali with the Commentary of Vyasa" by Bangali Baba

The attendance in the Scriptural Study groups is FREE.  For those enrolled in an HYMC Teacher Training program, FULL ATTENDANCE earns 1.5 credit hours toward their program.
