Sutra Discussion Sunday April 14

We’ll be meeting at 10:00 on Sunday April 14 at 336 W Dana St, 94041 (the little house), until 11:30. Bring your translations as usual.

We plan to finish discussing sutra 2.43 about the third niyama, tapas, and maybe start on 2.44, svadhyaya:

Svādhyāya is a compound Sanskrit word composed of svā (स्वा) + adhyāya (अध्याय). Adhyāya means “a lesson, lecture, chapter; reading”. Svā means “own, one’s own, self, the human soul”. Therefore, Svādhyāya literally means “one’s own reading, lesson”.
