Wheel of Yoga – Week Two

Key Points

  • Transcendence is achieved by shedding the habits of the personality. Different versions of yoga arrive at this same conclusion.
  • Raja Yoga teaches harmony between self and surroundings. 
  • Karma Yoga teaches selfless service without expectation of reciprocity.
  • Jnana yoga teaches an understanding of the workings of the mind.
  • Bhakti yoga teaches devotion to love for love’s sake.
  • Hatha yoga teaches strength in the physical body.
  • Mantra yoga teaches sound and saying as a strategy for finding transcendence through meditation.
