    What are the Vedas?

    Any type of yoga is something impossible to express, and yoga is based on the knowledge of the Vedas. At this moment, the Vedas constitute the most ancient tradition that has survived till our days, the oldest philosophic theory that was taken to India by Aryans. The Vedas are very powerful, strong, supreme logical and humanistic knowledge! In the “wrong" hands it can turn into a dangerous poison, but in the “right” hands it can save the humanity. For a long time, the Vedas were guarded by priests - the brahmans. The Vedas contain the Great Truth. There is an opinion that the Vedas are a heritage of a civilization on a higher evolutionary level and this knowledge has survived till our days.

    What are the Vedas? Where is their strength and power hidden? Why was the great knowledge kept secret? Where did this knowledge come from and who has written the Vedas? Why an untrusted person was not allowed to hear any piece of this knowledge even accidentally? How were the Vedas passed on?

    In this course we will study the topic of “The Vedas and yoga”. How these terms are mutually related and what they mean. Regardless of a large amount of literature and experts in this field, this topic is impressive and ambiguous.
