Austin Urban Sadhu Yoga

Urban Sadhu Philosophy

Yoga means to yoke, union, becoming one, or reunification. Yoga ends separation and otherness.

 

Philosophically, Urban Sadhu Yoga is a non-dualistic yoga system. In spirituality non-dualistic simply means “not two” or “one undivided without a second.” Non-dualism refers to a state of consciousness that allows the individual to see and experience the oneness of being.

 

Dualistic division is a weapon of  domination used within society, religion, and corporate structures to subjugate the masses and control them though otherness. It feeds on individuals’ fears and insecurities based on perceived separations that are manifestations of the mind and ego.

 

Alienation and separation cause us to split reality according to what we think we like and dislike, a dualistic approach that is self-defeating. Yoga reveals our true nature, love, and compassion. Likes and dislikes are equalized. When you wake up and realize your true nature, consciousness reveals that everything around you has the same nature of love and compassion. Otherness dissolves into an ocean of true eternal awareness.

 

Non-dualistic philosophy gives us the ability to experience reality in a way that does not exclude concepts we don’t understand and feel alienated by. Non-dualistic yoga philosophy liberates and frees us from fear and insecurities, leading to true Self-confidence.
