Buddha and Patanjali – The Buddha Dharma and the Yoga Sutra

Four noble truths vs. Patanjali’s Ashtanga Yoga

Workshop Introduction to “Sati-Yoga” with Stefan Adinath Zöller

The foundations of Buddhism (eg the Four Noble Truths / the Noble Eightfold Path) in comparison with parts of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras (eg Ashtanga Yoga).

We deal with a few important principles of the Buddha Dharma and put them in comparison with the Ashtanga Yoga of the Yoga Sutra, by Patanjali. Perhaps we will find that there are many similarities and that at least one of the goals of the two ways is the same. The liberation from suffering.

In the workshop, besides the theory, you will practice different (meditation) techniques from both traditions. Of course, yoga postures, breathing exercises, retreating of the senses, concentration, etc. and just mindfulness practice, formal and for everyday life.
