Susanna and Jens has recently studied Kashimirian Śaivism at Copenhagen University translating the text, Paramārthasāra “The Essence of Supreme Truth” by the poet and yogi Abhinavagupta from 10th century. The topic is jīvanmukti – the gaining of Self-knowledge, thus liberated while living.
A main issue for a devoted shaiva jīvanmukta is the monistic view of Śiva’s reflection, pratibimba, and how he is manifested, ābhāsavāda, in a world that appears full of opposites and diversity.
This is a very different view to yoga propounded by Patañjali in his Yoga Sūtras which is based on sāṃkhya, a dualistic theory.
Susanna and Jens will in the Yoga Forums present monistic Śaivism in his view and the aim of being liberated from Saṃsāra while still alive. Explaining concepts of pratibimba, ābhāsavāda, means to liberation, upāya, and free while still living, jīvanmukta.
Sunday 25th of March 12-13.30 – means to liberation, upāya, and free while still living, jīvanmukta.
Yoga Forum is for practitioners of yoga to meet and share experiences
