TTY 2016: Week of April 11th

Assignment for Monday April 11th

On Monday we will conclude our exploration of the tantric traditions.

In preparation for Monday’s class, please watch this TED talk by MIT scientist Jeff Lieberman. See if you can find the synchronicities between his ideas and the teachings of nondual tantra.

The 20 sutras of the Pratyabhijnahrdayam

Third Essay Question: due on Wednesday April 13th

What distinguishes asceticism, hatha yoga, and tantra? What are specific differences and continuities between these aspects of yoga history? Within the essay be sure that you clearly define each of these three categories based on reading material and lecture notes and then make your comparative argument.

Please underline your thesis statement in the opening paragraph of your essay. Your essay should be one page in length, about 450-500 words long. Be sure to review comments from your previous two essays before you complete this third essay. The comments are there to help you learn from past mistakes. May this be your best essay yet!
