SATSANG – IN THE COMPANY OF TRUTH

TALKS WITH YOGA TEACHER PAVLOS K. HASSANAGAS – VOL. II

  

The satsang is one of the oldest forms of teaching in yoga. The word

satsang is usually translated as being in the company of truth or sages

and connecting to the essence, where the enlightened teacher is the personification of the spiritual knowledge or the truth. In this context,

the satsang should be understood as a dialogue, guidance or direction

by a spiritual teacher.

 

The book contains a selection of answers by teacher Pavlos K. Hassanagas

on questions asked by yoga practitioners that are mainly concerned with

various aspects of everyday life, as well as dilemmas regarding their spiritual practice. Although the answers by the teacher convey the yogic view of the

world as well as his personal perception and experience of things, the book

however is not intended only for yoga practitioners. It is for everyone who

feels the calling for spirituality. The answers of the teacher can help both:

the first to not get lost in the scenery of the spirit, and the latter to not

remain trapped in the claws of everyday problems, since for the truly

spiritual man life is indivisible, life is one.

HATHA YOGA PRADIPIKA

By Swatmarama with the commentary Jyotsna by Brahmananda

  

The Hatha Yoga Pradipika is one of the most important treatises on

hatha yoga, a text most quoted by those who explore this ancient knowledge.

Yogi Swatmarama compiled this work probably between 14th and 16th

century. It was first translated into English in 1893 and since then

it has been published in various languages. Yoga Federation of Macedonia

now published the first Macedonian translation of this classical text.

Hatha Yoga Pradipika reveals the subtle dimensions of hatha yoga as a system

for spiritual development, which enables us to reach the highest spiritual state

through bodily practice, prana control and awakening of kundalini.
Due to the manner in which the text is written and the subtlety of the matter,

this is a work intended for experienced practitioners who will approach it carefully

and read it patiently, without insisting to understand everything at once.

Guided by their teacher they will try to interpret the text and avoid all intellectual

traps. For them this treatise will be an inspiration and an opportunity to gain new

insights and deeper understanding of their spiritual practice.

SADHANA - YOGA PRACTICE

BY TEACHER PAVLOS K. HASSANAGAS

  

This is a book on the theory of practice, a subject rarely explored in yoga

literature. It presents, for the first time, the structure of the original

methodology of teaching yoga established by teacher Pavlos Hassanagas.

His approach reveals that each moment of yoga practice is a chance to

overcome one’s limitations, an opportunity for external and internal

cultivation and continuous advancement towards the state of higher

consciousness.

 

However this is not a book only on hatha yoga. Actually it reflects the place and

the role of hatha yoga in the system of integral yoga established by teacher Hassanagas. The book contains his views on the relatedness between hatha yoga

and raja yoga, explanations of the subtle dimensions and effects of the

techniques and reveals the role and importance of the body and the mind as

instruments on the path of spiritual evolution. We hope that this book will help

both yoga practitioners and yoga instructors to improve their understanding of

yoga, as well as to find ways to transform the bodily practice to a spiritual one.

YOGA - A SPIRITUAL ODYSSEY

BY TEACHER PAVLOS K. HASSANAGAS

  

When one begins to practice yoga, one embarks on a spiritual odyssey,

on a journey inwards, where Ithaca are one’s heart and soul, and the path

of their refinement passes through the revelation of the invisible, of the

spiritual.

  

The book presents the authentic manner in which teacher Pavlos K. Hassanagas

interprets and teaches yoga for over 40 years. Using a comprehensible language

and uncomplicated examples, he explains the philosophical dimension of yoga, the

spiritual development of any yoga practitioner through the synthesis of different

types of yoga and, above all, talks of the possibility to integrate this complex

knowledge in everyone’s life.

This book is intended not only for yoga practitioners, but for everyone who seeks

and asks, because the teacher is addressing our heart rather than our mind,

attempting to evoke the intuitive, higher part inside us. We hope that after

reading it one will not remain unchanged, that this will be a book that readers will

return to many times for new insights and better understanding of themselves.
