Experience the practice of Ishwara samāpatti from sage Patanjali's Yogasutra with this 40 minute guided meditation. Ishwara is described in the Yogasutra as that being who is free from all afflictions, karma and its results, and any latent impression other than tranquility. The best English translation of Ishwara, who is omniscient and omnipotent due to immense mental prowess, is God. His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda offers opening Sanskrit chanting before guiding the practice. This meditation is geared towards beginners, but is suitable for all levels.
Recorded on 25th August 2016 on the occasion of Krishna Janmashtami celebration in Santa Barbara.
