The Yoga of Reflection

Last Wednesday, Srila Dhanurdhara Swami finished the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. He is starting a new sanga series called The Yoga of Reflection with Mahamuni dasa. Each week Maharaja will discuss a particular philosophical point in the sastra from different angles. He will start with key themes from the Bhagavad-gita.

TRANSLATION

Sri Pariksit said: Noble mother, after hearing Ugrasena's advice, Narada, the dear devotee of Lord Maha-visnu, became absorbed in the taste of exalted love of God, which seized him in its grip. Forgetting everything else, he started off, vina in hand. Having spent much time before in Dvaraka, Narada automatically took the familiar roads to the center of the city, amazing roads that led to the neighborhood of the Lord's palaces, and came to the palace of Krsna's that he knew how to reach from earlier visits. Under the spell of intense transcendental agitation, Narada seemed like an ordinary person haunted by a ghost.
