You Think You Know Yoga?
The Path to Self-Realization

Listen to the audio version here

Today we finally ask the question: do we really know yoga? What's the true purpose of this practice?

In this session, Sri Dharma Mittra, the revered yogi who has dedicated most of his life to serving humanity through the teachings of classical yoga, helps us uncover the answers to these questions and explains what it means to, "Realize the Self."

He explains how asana, pranayama, meditation, and ahimsa--the principle of nonviolence--help us to calm the mind, control our emotions, and develop compassion for ourselves and others. Sri Dharma describes how we change as we grow spiritually, how our behavior evolves, and what kinds of tapas (restrictions) can help us to reach samadhi (bliss)!

In this interview you'll also learn...

  • The ultimate aim of yoga
  • The importance of meditation for spiritual bliss
  • Where to concentrate when meditating
  • Why yogis advocate becoming vegetarian
  • How to cultivate compassion even in triggering situations
  • Sri Dharma's vision for 50 years from now, when everyone will be practicing yoga, and we all reach samadhi!

"Naturally we have compassion only for our loved ones. But, as we grow older spiritually, our compassion starts going beyond our pets and friends."
