Friends Event: Yoga Solutions to Stress and Suffering

Leicester Friends Event
Saturday, 11 July 2015 – 6:00pm to 9:30pm

Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre 

Rothley Street, Leicester LE4 6LF

A talk by Ramesh Pattni of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies

Patañjali’s Yogasūtra (c. 300CE) gives a framework for understanding the causes of stress and suffering. What is the nature of suffering? Why do we experience anxiety and pain? How and from where do these arise? Are there solutions to suffering that can be long-lasting? These are some of the questions that Patañjali addresses in his compilation on Yoga in which he gives techniques by which stress and suffering can be alleviated and even eliminated.
