Dop 2009, Auckland A4/184pp softcover Conspicuously absent from current teaching is Yoga as the union of polarities and its obvious implication to the male and female union within and without – the nature of life itself. Hatha Yoga is tantric practice. While Vedantic Brahmans – the caretakers and contemporary proponents of Yoga – borrowed tantric practices to develop their religious aspiration to transcend this world, they denied the essential purpose of Yoga: to link the mind to the wonder of our own condition. Tantric traditions also confused Yoga with religion in their attempt to conquer nature or to go ‘beyond’. Meanwhile, the idea of ‘tantric sex’ has become popular without its context and catalyst – an actual yoga practice designed for each person. The historic predominance of monastic order and other worldliness – mainly Christian and Buddhist – created elitism in society that severely diminished the perceived value of the individual. The householder life was devalued and the mutuality between man and woman eliminated. Humanity still suffers this persuasive life denial, the search for truth as ‘other’. However, at this time in evolution individuals may understand and heal by enjoying the wonder of life moving in each one of us as body, breath and relationship. Mark Whitwell puts a spotlight on these issues to restore an efficient and complete Yoga for everybody.
