Hatha Yoga Pradipika Certificate Course
The Hatha Yoga Pradipika is the most comprehensive Sanskrit text for yoga technique. Traditionally, hatha yoga works with prana, the life force. Mastering prana as a means for purifying and developing the mind is the subject of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika.
The Hatha Yoga Pradipika is compiled by Yogi Swatmarama, an outstanding personality among many authorities of Hatha Yoga i.e. Goraknanath, Gheranda and Srinivasa Bhatta. Hatha Yoga is a very important science for man all the time. The beauty of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika is that it solves a very great problem of every aspirant. The term Hatha is a combination of two big mantras, i.e. Ha & tha where Ha represents mind, the mental energy. That represents prana the vital force. So Hatha yoga means the union between the pranic and mental force. This is the awakening of higher consciousness. In another description, Ha means moon; that means sun “This is a symbolic of the twin energy forces which exists in everything. It represents the forces of mind, prana or vitality. Which constitute body and mind? The term Pradipika actually means self illuminating or that which illumines. So it is a text which illumines a multitude of physical, mental and spiritual problems for the aspirants.
As in yoga, life and consciousness are known as Purusha and Prakriti and in Tantra they are called Shakti and Shiva, similarly in Hatha yoga they are known as Ida and Pingala.
In Hatha yoga it begin by saying the one should first purify the whole body the stomach, intestines, nervous system and other systems. By discipline the body the subtle elements, the energy channels (Nadis) within the body should be purified. The behaviour of the vital life force (Prana), the entire nervous system and the various secretions in the body should be properly maintained and harmonized. In this way it will be possible to develop deep meditation. These practices will induce pratyahara and leading dharana dhyana and Samadhi.
The main objective of Hatha Yoga is to create an absolute balance of the interacting activities and processes of the physical body, mind and energy. When this balance is created the impulses created give a call of awakening to the control force (Sushmana nadi) which is responsible for the evolution of human consciousness. Therefore it considers Hatha Yoga as the preliminary practice of Tantra, Raja Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Kriya Yoga.
