Transcending Body and Mind DVD
Q&A: Transcending Body and Mind - with Sri Swami SatchidanandaRecorded on May 25, 2002In this satsang, Swami Satchidananda answers questions relating to how our spiritual practice helps us come into right relationship with our bodies and minds. Krishna Das leads some chanting after which there is a discussion of the benefits of chanting and all the Yoga practices. Sri Gurudev explains: “Swami Vivekananda talks about chanting and bhakti. It is good to have it, but that alone is not enough because you have to handle the energy that is awakened by the chanting. So that is why we call it Integral Yoga. It integrates everything.”He also answers a question about illness that leads into a discussion of the impermanence of life and how our Yoga practice helps us to transcend the body and master the mind so we may connect with our eternal nature: “Mother Nature’s qualities are ever-changing. But behind the ever-changing is a never changing One.” This DVD captures the spontaneity and energy of a public talk providing a beautiful opportunity to sit with Sri Gurudev and be guided by his vast wisdom.
