哈達瑜伽不是一種體位法風格

您認為什麼是“哈達瑜珈 Hatha Yoga”呢?

是一種風格,還是瑜伽派別?

您的認知是什麼?


瑜伽是自我轉化的一門古老科學,不是一種肢體運動。瑜珈體位法的其中一個意義是幫助我們愛護身體、保持身體健康,所以我們才可以更容易向內專注。試想,若一天到晚身體痠痛,光跑醫院就沒時間了,還有心思向內觀照、造福他人嗎?


以下是上師Prasad講解什麼是哈達瑜珈,在此簡單翻譯成中文,供大家參考:)


How would you define Hatha Yoga? Is it a style?

What is your understanding?

In the past, I naively and incorrectly considered Hatha Yoga as a style. Luckily now I have a Guru who removed my ignorance and guides me in the Path of Yoga.

Yoga is not just Asana but a way to self-transformation. Yoga Asana can help to improve and maintain our health so it will be easier to turn our attention inward. Just imagine if we have a poor physical condition and feel tired most of time, will we still have additional energy to focus inward and to do good deeds for others?

Below is the post from Master Prasad, I repost here for those who are interested




哈達瑜珈並不是一種相對比較簡單的瑜伽風格,以下資訊可以寬廣大家對哈達瑜珈的看法。


Hatha Yoga is not a style of doing postures but a comprehensive orientation of theory and practices that lead the practitioner beyond suffering through complete self-understanding.

哈達瑜伽不是一種體位法的風格,而是一套有著完整面向的理論和修煉,幫助修行者透過完全的自我了解來超越苦痛。


Hatha Yoga started not as a 'style' but is a movement, a movement towards personal transformation and inclusive social change. The origins of Hatha Yoga are based in activism and rebellion against the prevalent Brahminical hegemony, ritualistic dogmas and perverse Tantric practices. Over past 10 centuries the main propagator of Hatha Yoga, Mahayogi GorakhNath, has inspired a long lineage of saints who have consistently rebelled against the oppressive societal order of their times and created change in their respective communities.

瑜伽從最初就不是一種「風格」,而是一種「革新」。這種革新,不單是個人的轉化,更包含了社會的革新。哈達瑜珈始於針對於婆羅門階級領導霸權、固化教條以及走偏變調的密宗修煉的反抗。千年以來,哈達瑜珈主要的宣揚者 Mahayogi GorakhNath,啟發了是世代代的無數聖者,去對抗社會教條的壓迫以及對動自身所處社群的改革。


To break the dictates of caste system the order of Hatha Yogis were open to all seekers beyond race, religion and gender. If one takes a look at the main Gurus of the Hatha Yoga order one can see that the list comprises those from lower castes, handicaps, women and social out-castes.

為了打破種姓制度獨裁,哈達瑜珈內的各階級職位,是開放所有求道者,不分種族、宗教以及性別。回顧歷史,哈達瑜珈內的主要上師,可能是女性、來自社會下層、傷殘,或是不被主流社會所接受的人。


The main focus of Hatha Yoga sadhana is mental regulation and release from the web of objective reality to bringing the mind back to its natural (Sahaja) state of infinite potential. With this essence at heart, the lineages of Hatha Yogis focused more on personal transformation and social change rather than being limited only to philosophical sophistry and intellectual regurgitation.


哈達瑜珈修煉的主要目的是調節心智(mental regulation),並將其從客體實像的網中釋放出來,回歸到自生本覺知的無限潛能。以此為本,世代的哈達瑜珈行者致力於個人轉化以及社會改革,而非於淪為哲理詭辯以及智識的反芻
