The Yoga of Wonder: O Introducere in practica Vijnana Bhairav Tantra, cu Andre Riehl

Andre-text-96144” In the great joy of seeing
A loved one after a long absence,
A flash of recognition ignites you.

Space becomes charged,
The bond between you shimmers,
And a surge of delight arises in your being.

Find within you the source of this surge.
Melt into that place of upwelling,
A wave rolling in a vast ocean of delight.”

Vijnana Bhairava

Vijñāna Bhairava  este un text cheie din perioada medievala tantrica indiana, prezentand 112 technici de yoga care fac posibila experienta realitatii neconditionate.

Aceasta este descrisa ca starea de constienta pura (bhairavarupata), starea suprema de vacuitate (sunya), transcendenta (paramo bhavet), viziunea realitatii (tattvarthadarshanam) sau mai simlu, starea de pace – beatitudine (paramam sukham).

Vijnana Bhairava foloseste tot repertoarul tehnic din Yoga Clasica (Yoga lui Patanjali din Yoga Sutra) —postura (asana), controlul suflului vital si tehnici de trezire a energiei vitale (pranayama/pranakriya), practica meditatiei (dharana/dhyana) adaugand recitatrea formulelor mistice (mantra japa) si contemplarea creativa (bhavana).

La fel ca Yoga Clasică, Vijnana Bhairva are ca obiectiv principal linistirea fluctuațiilor minții și cultivarea unei atenții calitativ diferite de modul normal de functionare a constientei.

Spre deosebire de Yoga Sutra insa, Vijnana Bhairava descrie aceasta cultivare intr-o incredibila varietate de condiții și circumstanțe. De fapt, nici un aspect al experienței nu este exclus din domeniul practicii.

Desi corpul fizic si cel energetic sunt domeniile principale a le travaliului, suntem invitați să experimentam cu atentie si lumea exterioară senzoriala.

Fiecare experienta devine un obiect pentru meditatie.

Andre Riehl, a short bio:

Andre Riehl is a direct disciple of Chandra Swami. He is President of Federation des Yoga Traditionnels and member of FIDHY Executive Board – France. He is also director of the Prana Bindu International Yoga Retreat – Ujjain (India).

Andre-ji studies and practices Yoga since 1972.

He wanders for many years the monasteries and ashrams in India, meeting many traditional masters with whom he sometimes stayed, studying very specific teachings from classical as well as tantric yoga practices. After some searching years, meeting Kashmiri Babu, a wandering ascetic from the Shaïva tradition, he undergone a deep study retreat into the spiritual quest.

Also very touched by his meetings with J.Krishnamurti and Sri Ananda Mayee Ma, he studied two other important aspects of the inner path, related to these two great instructors: discrimination and relationship.

It is the final encounter with Chandra Swami, an ascetic from the Brahmanic lineage of the Udasins, which will give a full sense to all the teachings studied before.

Back to France, he studied several years the art of teaching Yoga through the points of view of four different schools: Swami Shivananda, Lucien Ferrer (Yoga of Energy), Nil Haoutoff and Sri T.K.V. Desikachar before becoming himself a teacher.

Author of « Le Prince des Forêts », a French adaptation of the Râmayâna, of two video cassettes on “Yoga Traditionnel” and a CD of Sanskrit chantings « Mantra Sadhana », he also translated 8 books on the inner quest.

Nominated President of the French Fédération des Yoga Traditionnels in 1992, he opened seven Yoga Training Schools (Toulouse, Paris, Bretagne, Bourgogne, Le Mans, Suisse and Luxemburg).

Present Activities :

Willing to participate in the transmission of the ancestral yogic tradition, he teaches authentic yoga practices where old classic knowledge meets contemporary human discoveries.

In this direction, the teachings are a vast complex of different practices helping to build a holistic mind including all aspects of our life and our identity:

+ bodywork and energetical dynamism,

+ development of conscious and natural breathings,

+ study of the different relaxation levels and dream consciousness,
