"SVA" means "self" and "ADHYAYA" means "study through contemplation". Therefore, SVAADHYAYA means "the study of the self through contemplation".
This means both the study of the inner human Self and the study of the Objective Science of the Whole (YOGA) which leads to the discovery of the Self.
This science includes all the authentic spiritual knowledge of our planet. As a bee collects the nectar of many flowers, the yogi should enrich himself with all the genuine truths of all spiritual paths.
A continuous reading of, and sincere reflection upon the traditional texts of Wisdom, prepares the way for experimenting through personal practice the higher levels of knowledge and awareness.
Contrary to the general opinion, these texts are not philosophical points of view only, but practical instructions of experimenting new states of mind.
Language is used as an explanatory inducement toward the liberating experience. At the beginning, some of these texts may seem to make no sense, especially to a westerner.
But they convey extremely profound wisdom and contain condensed information which is supposed to be meditated (SAMYAMA) upon.
Usually, the traditional texts are available in translation only. Unfortunately, through translation a lot of the original meaning is lost.
- SHIVA SAMHITA
- YOGA SUTRA of PATANJALI
- GERANDA SAMHITA
- BHAGAVAD GITA
- The Four Gospels
- The Gospel according to Thomas
- TAO TEH CHING by LAO TZE
- The UPANISHADS
- TABULA SMARAGDINA and SEPHER JESIRAH, two cabalistic texts
- HATHA YOGA PRADIPIKA
Read more than two translations of the same texts and try to become familiar with the technical terms and with their multiple meanings.
5. ISHVARA PRANIDHANA
ISHVARA designates a level of Cosmic Consciousness which is very close to the western idea of God.
ISHVARA PRANIDHANA is the state of permanent communion with the Cosmic Consciousness and of total surrender to the Cosmic Will. It means placing your consciousness, mind and body completely, absolutely, thoroughly into the Superior Cosmic Will.
It means to cooperate with the higher levels of cosmic manifestation through a sincere and intense yearning toward integrating your being into the Universal Harmony.
