Meditation on the Gnana Yoga, with Danilo Hernández

The happiness that everyone are looking for lives within us, it is not possible to find it out. But we have accumulated so many impurities and conditioning that we cannot recognize or experience our true identity, the Vedanta and Yoga called Satchitananda (being-consciousness-happiness). Danilo Hernandez writes.


The path to self-realization is a purification process in which disclaim all superfluous, of all constraints, all ignorance. When purification is complete, it was "we learned" what we were looking for always "there". Then realize our true nature, our identity with everything or absolute.

Yoga is essentially a way of purification. The process of personal transformation that operates through its practice, involves purification of three basic levels of the person. Harmonization and the bodily humors purification is carried out by means of the shatkarmas (internal cleaning techniques). Purification and fisico-energetico balance is achieved through the practice of the asanas and pranayama. The emotional and mental purification is carried out through the process of meditation.

All avenues of Yoga are systems of meditation. In this workshop we will explore the path of the Gnana Yoga, the path of knowledge, (viveka) discernment and wisdom, as a means of self-realization and the awakening of all the potential of the human being. There will be a theoretical part where we will review the theoretical Essentials of Gnana Yoga and the practical part with some meditations of Gnana Yoga.
