Delve into the world of myth and mysticism in this episode of Yogic Paths. Myth is a way to communicate certain, subtle truths that cannot be understood through ordinary words. Through mythical stories, humans are capable of explaining deep truths, allowing others to access knowledge that expands the understanding of what is possible.
As we begin to understand the symbolism behind the stories, images, and deities of yogic roots, we will see how they pervade every aspect of our lives. Practitioners of Jainism and Shaivism understand this connection as non-duality, an ability to experience the divine in every atom, and therefore enjoy a blissful existence, one that doesn’t end with death.
