LATEST DIALOGUES Yoga is a Celebration of Life, Eric Baret

Eric Baret points out that there are no sculptures of yogic asanas in Indian temples before the modern era. He describes today’s yoga as a commercial project, a kind of yoga irrelevant to the ancient traditions. His own practice, he says, has brought him nothing – it is a celebration of life, free of intention and totally purposeless. His words are shaped and sustained by the nondual tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, and take us back to the simple observation of our felt sense of emotion and, ultimately, to pure listening. This allows a liberating realization: the root of suffering is an illusion, and all claims to knowledge are a pretense. The first English translation of one of Eric Baret’s books, Let the Moon Be Free, will be published this month by Science and Nonduality and available at the SAND conference and on Amazon. These dialogues are an invitation to celebrate life in the present moment, free from the fear of an imaginary future.
