Adiyogi: The Source of Yoga

HarperCollins Publishers India
257

'Shi-va' is 'that which is not', a primordial emptiness; Shiva is also the first-ever yogi, Adiyogi, the one who first perceived this emptiness. Adiyogi is symbol and myth, historic figure and living presence, creator and destroyer, outlaw and ascetic, cosmic dancer and passionate lover, all at once. A book like no other, this extraordinary document is a tribute to Shiva, the Adiyogi, by a living yogi; a chronicle of the progenitor of mysticism by a contemporary mystic. Here science and philosophy merge seamlessly, so do silence and sound, question and answer-to capture the unspeakable enigma of Adiyogi in a spellbinding wave of words and ideas that will leave one entranced, transformed.

《瑜伽經》是針對瑜伽科學所著之最深奧的文獻之一。

它以一句奇怪的句子作為開場白:「……當下,瑜伽。」

這部偉大的生命文獻只用半句話作為開場!為什麼?

 

★ 美國亞馬遜心靈成長、新時代分類暢銷書 Top5

★《紐約時報》暢銷書榜自我成長類 No.10

★ 獲選 SPIRITUALITY & HEALTH 雜誌2016年度十大心靈好書

 

薩古魯說,人類就像籠中鳥,而這籠子並沒有籠門。我們只不過是出於長久以來的習慣,而拒絕自由自在地飛翔。因此,每個靈性導師的教法都只有一個宗旨——指出那個籠子沒有門。靈性修持的整個目的,就在於破除我們為自己所設下的界限,成為自己命運的主人。

所以,本書所提供的不是一場佈道,而是一門科學;不是一個教法,而是一項技術;不是一種戒律,而是一條道路——那就是瑜伽。

瑜伽是一門讓我們能體驗幸福的科學,我們在這個世上是否能有所成就,就取決於自己掌控身體、頭腦、能量三個層面的能力。透過瑜伽來協調這三個層面,我們就能達到狂喜與生命本身合一的終極狀態。

本書分為四部,第一部為靈性修持這個未知的地帶繪製地圖,它提供了一系列根本且重要的內觀洞見。第二部至第四部提供使用這張地圖來定位導航的方法,比較偏重於實際的修持,共有廿五項生活中隨時可做的「靈性修持」,幫助我們打破僵固,重寫內在的生命程式,重新創建新的自己。

Encounter the Enlightened is a guiding beacon of divine wisdom and inspiration for all persons seeking self-realization and an experience of the unbounded nature of life. Master, mystic and yogi Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev presents a rare glimpse of undiluted truth from discourses given to yoga disciples and other audiences at his ashram in south India and around the world. A tool of tremendous value in an age imprisoned by materialism and dogma, these dialogues are an essential key to inner exploration of the profound questions of humanity: Who am I? Why are we here? What happens after death? What is the meaning of life? The master speaks with undeniable logic and wisdom that penetrates the deepest realms of our heart and soul.

Encounter the Enlightened examines some of the most controversial social and spiritual issues of our time through the lens, wisdom and words of an enlightened being whose teachings are simple and pristine. Sadhguru's compelling and often-provocative responses lead readers to an understanding of the ego that keeps us in bondage, the fragmentary nature of the mind and the crippling conditioning of society. Sadhguru presents a possibility to transcend the limitations of the three-dimensional world and awaken the absolute - the ultimate fulfillment. In the words of Sadhguru, the fruit of such an awakening is that "you can go through life untouched, you can play with life whichever way you want and still life cannot do anything to you; life does not leave scars on you. That is the miracle that we are working to manifest in everybody's life."

The book is a rare gem for all who seek truth beyond solace and who are willing to abandon sensibilities for the sacred. It is a glimpse of the divine potential that we are.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Thought leader, visionary, philanthropist, mystic, and yogi Sadhguru presents Western readers with a time-tested path to achieving absolute well-being: the classical science of yoga.

NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY SPIRITUALITY & HEALTH

The practice of hatha yoga, as we commonly know it, is but one of eight branches of the body of knowledge that is yoga. In fact, yoga is a sophisticated system of self-empowerment that is capable of harnessing and activating inner energies in such a way that your body and mind function at their optimal capacity. It is a means to create inner situations exactly the way you want them, turning you into the architect of your own joy.

A yogi lives life in this expansive state, and in this transformative book Sadhguru tells the story of his own awakening, from a boy with an unusual affinity for the natural world to a young daredevil who crossed the Indian continent on his motorcycle. He relates the moment of his enlightenment on a mountaintop in southern India, where time stood still and he emerged radically changed. Today, as the founder of Isha, an organization devoted to humanitarian causes, he lights the path for millions. The term guru, he notes, means “dispeller of darkness, someone who opens the door for you. . . . As a guru, I have no doctrine to teach, no philosophy to impart, no belief to propagate. And that is because the only solution for all the ills that plague humanity is self-transformation. Self-transformation means that nothing of the old remains. It is a dimensional shift in the way you perceive and experience life.” The wisdom distilled in this accessible, profound, and engaging book offers readers time-tested tools that are fresh, alive, and radiantly new. Inner Engineering presents a revolutionary way of thinking about our agency and our humanity and the opportunity to achieve nothing less than a life of joy.

Praise for Sadhguru and Inner Engineering

“Contrarian and consistent, ancient and contemporary, Inner Engineering is a loving invitation to live our best lives and a profound reassurance of why and how we can.”—Sir Ken Robinson, author of The Element, Finding Your Element, and Out of Our Minds: Learning to Be Creative

“I am inspired by Sadhguru’s capacity for joy, his exuberance for life, and the depth and breadth of his curiosity and knowledge. His book is filled with moments of wonder, awe, and intellectual challenge. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in self-transformation.”—Mark Hyman, M.D., director, Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, and New York Times bestselling author

“Inner Engineering is a fascinating read of Sadhguru’s insights and his teachings. If you are ready, it is a tool to help awaken your own inner intelligence, the ultimate and supreme genius that mirrors the wisdom of the cosmos.”—Deepak Chopra
