是佛先倡导阿斯汤伽？！Did the Buddha Practice Ashtanga?!
阿斯汤伽，Ashtanga, 梵语之本意为八支：Yama (戒行), Niyama, (遵守)，Asana (正体位)，Pranayama (控息), Pratyahara (净六根), Dharana (冥想), Samadhi (三昧)。做为一种修身养性的系统练习，它和古印度教的其它流派渊源深长，尤其是和佛提倡的八正道大同小异。
Ashtanga, meaning Eight Limbs in Sanskrit, stands for refrains, moral conduct, physical practice, breath control, withdrawal of senses, meditation, and enlightenment. As a systematic physical and spiritual practice, it is deeply rooted in the ancient Hinduism, especially Buddha’s Eight-Fold Path.
In practice, many students spend years trying to master the asanan, so today many see Ashtanga as change-less and endless series of physical drills.
Such limited views clearly failed to appreciate the beauty of the whole. This workshop, after an asana practice, will explore the similarities and differences between the Buddhist and Ashtanga systems, while experiencing the spiritual tools prescribed by Patanjali.
