Bangalore:  The two weeks Ashtanga Yoga camp, held in Bangalore would go down as the historic camp ever conducted in the context of Yoga. It is an unprecedented approach of Kaulantak Peethadhishwara, Mahayogi Satyendra Nath Ji Maharaja (Ishaputra) to present the Ashtanga Yoga as it is.

His Holiness Ishaputra in the camp said to the participants, “The society is the hub of adulteration. From human utilities to human mind, everything is adulterated. The “Yoga” is no different. It has been adulterated past its saturation point with subjective views and wrong interpretation of Yoga texts, devoid of any authentic lineages and traditions. Time has now come to preserve the sanctity of Yoga by presenting the authentic Yoga to the society as it as and not as what people think Yoga to be based on their convenience and subjective view”.

The camp started with the basic explanations of various Ashtanga Yoga. Mahasiddha Ishaputra, started the camp by clarifying the original meaning of “Ashtanga Yoga” as “Ashtanga Vrata Yoga”. He further clarified that the modern day “Ashtanga Yoga” is the stew of various yoga. The Vrata yoga of Lord Shiva had been injected and tempered with the “Hath Yoga” of Mahasiddha Goraksh Nath and the “Patanjali Yoga Sutra”of Maharishi Patanjali. They were all cooked together to form the stew called “Ashtanga Yoga” of modern day. It was also expedient that the original “Ashtanga Vrata Yoga” be explained to the masses as it as to clean all the tempered subjective views on the Yoga.

According to one of the participants Alok Deobarat, “Mahasiddha Ishaputra explained the eight limbs of Yoga differently than that we get to read in search engines and in the books. His explanations on the eight limbs of yoga were an eye opener on various aspects of yoga”. He told us that the Ishaputra’s explanation of the original “Ashtanga Vrata Yoga” helped him clarify various confusions regarding the “Pratyahara” limb of the Ashtanga Yoga.

Another participant, Yogi Vaibhab Bisht from the Uttarakhand presented us with similar views. He had positive things to say about the camp. He told us that he would now be practicing yoga with a different mindset  than before and he would also in future be using the “Dharana” part very cautiously as no yoga teacher had ever taught him “Dharana” in dept as Mahasiddha Ishaputra did.

The takeaway of the whole two weeks camp was the revelation of the authentic lineage of the Siddha’s “Ashtanga Vrata Yoga”. The lineage holder, the root gurus of the yoga was explained in details. The other aspect was the certificate presented. The certificate was bilingual. It was presented in international language English and Tankari. Tankari is the one of the oldest script of the world. It is also the official language of the Kaula Siddha Dharma.

The two weeks camp was also historic in the sense that in the history of any camps conducted by His Holiness Ishaputra’s Kaula Siddha Dharma, Tankari had never been used before. This is the first time the Tankari has been used by anyone in public domain with such greatness.

On 16th October 2018, the historic yoga camp was finally concluded with presentation of certificate leaving the participants to explore new heights of Yoga.
