Nonsectarian but not Secular: Yoga and Religion

By Robin Lilly | 09/20/2023 | J Brown Yoga Talks

Gary talks to J Brown about the historical, philosophical, and religious context in which yoga appeared. They discuss the origins and substance of teachings given by TKV Desikachar at Colgate University in 1976, Patanjali’s interest in the phenomenon of faith rather than the metaphysical nature of the godhead, qualified non-dualism, escaping the materialism of asana, from alternative to complementary medicine, and transformation that addresses the fragmentation of our times.
