From the Upanishadic times, Yoga has remained an intrinsic dimension of the Sanatana Dharma but its meaning and the range of practices it covers have significantly changed over centuries. The third issue of Aditi will analyze the relationship between Yoga, Vedanta and Sadhana. What do we know from the scriptures and from historical records about the origin and history of Yoga? What is the relationship between Yoga and the other metaphysical traditions of India (Samkhya, Vedanta, Kashmir Saivism to name a few)? How does the understanding of the word “yoga” in the writings of Shankara and Gaudapada compare to the one of Patanjali or the later Natha yogis? Is there a common ground between Yoga and other traditional sciences in India such as Ayurveda? Should we interpret modern-day yoga, as it emerged largely from the teaching of Krishnamacharya, as a genuine evolution or as a break from the tradition? How does traditional Yoga relate to other disciplines of spiritual realization in the Ancient World (most notably in Greek philosophy) and in the world religions?
Articles can be submitted for review in French or English. The third issue of Aditi will be published only in French. English articles will be translated into French, with the possibility of having the English original made available on the website of the Aditi Center upon release of the third issue.
Final articles are due on August 15th, 2020. The third issue of Aditi is scheduled for the late 2020/early 2021.
