Description

Preface

Though several Indian and foreign editions of Hathapradipika have come out, so far as our knowledge goes, none of these editions has been critically edited. The editions we have seen seem to be based on a single manuscript and none of these editors has considered it necessary to give any particulars about the manuscript or even to say where it has been preserved. Moreover, all these editions contain several gross errors. Hence, as Hathapradipika is a lucid description of Hatha Yoga, the Kaivalyadhama S.M.Y.M. Samiti, Lonavla, considered it its duty to publish a Critical Edition of this Text.

The late Swami Kuvalayananda of revered memory and Shri R.G.Kokaje have been working on the preparation of this critical edition for some time; but its publication has been made possible only this year because the Government of India sanctioned a publication grant for which we are deeply grateful.

We are thankful to the following members of the staff who helped us in preparing this critical edition.

Dr. P.V. Karambelkar, M.Sc., Ph.D., Dr. Mahajot Sahai, M.A., Ph.D., Dr. M.V.Bhole, M.B.B.S., M.D., Dr. G.K.Pai, M.A., Ph.D., Dr. Vijayendra Pratap, M.A., Ph.D., D.Y.P., Shri M.L.Gharote, M.A., M.Ed., D.Y.P., Shri O.P. Tiwari, M.A., Sahityaratna, D.Y.P., Shri R.K.Sahu, M.A., D.Y.P.

 

Introduction

Svamarama treatise on Hathayoga has been held in great esteem both by scholars and practicing yogis. Though this writer’s emphasis is on yogic practices in which overt behavior plays an important part it is he who points out that the yogic processes form a continuum. He therefore did not consider Hathayoga and Rajayoga to be different compartments of yoga as they are generally believed to be and stressed their interdependence (cf hatham vina rajayogo rajayogam vina hathah/na siddhyati tato yugmam ansipatteh sumabhyaset.

Hathpradipika is one of the outstanding Hatha texts which fully describe the eight well known varieties of Pranayama Svatmarama’s work has proved to be a source of inspiration for many a later writer on Hathayoga as can be seen fro treatises like Yogacintamani Hatharatnavali Hathasanketacandrika and Hathatattvakaumudi as explicitly mentioned by him in I-18 Svatmarama has successfully brought about a synthesis of both the traditions of Hathayoga viz that of the munis and that of the yogis.

The opinion that all impurities in the nadis can be removed only by the practice of Pranyama has been explicitly mentioned by Sva tmarma alone. According to him the satkriyas are not obligatory for all. They are however to be practiced by all those who have an excess of meda slesma etc.

Yoga as described by Svatmarama has only four components while according to other authorities on Yoga it is said to have six, seven, eight and even fifteen components.

In the Puranas and the smrtis two types of Pranayama have been mentioned (1)Sagarbha with mantras and (2) Agarbha without recitation of mantra svatmaram however does not enjoin that practice of Pranayama should be accompanied with recitation of a mantra.

Svatmarama does not include Yamas and Niyamas among Yogangas (Components of Yoga) but he accepts their pre requisitory value in the path of Yogic practices curiously enough he includes Ahimsa in Niyamas and Mitahara in Yamas (I-38). This shows that he follows a different tradition than that of Patanjali and other. Though Dattareyasamhita and Yogatattvapanisad (28) also include Ahimsa among the Niyamas and Mitahara among yamas strangely enough they do not give a detailed picture of Yamas and Niyamas Paramartha however includes Mitahara in Yamas and Ahimsa in Niyamas.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
