Yogadrstisamuccaya of Haribhadra Suri (Study)

by Riddhi J. Shah | 2014 | 98,110 words

Summary: The Yogadrstisamuccaya represents a treatise on Jain Yoga in 228 Sanskrit verses, drawing from numerous sources on traditional Yoga. The author, Haribhadra Suri, stipulates three popular concepts among philosophical schools as: 1) nature of liberation, 2) a liberated soul, and 3) omniscience. This study analyzes each aspect in detail.

It is also shown how Haribhadra both corresponds to the eight-yoga-limbs of Patanjala Yogasutra as well as critizes the eternalism propagated by the Sankhya philosophy.—He has presented the spiritual elevation of a soul through the eight Yoga-drishtis which fit in the scheme of fourteen stages of spiritual development (guṇasthānaka).

These pages represent an English study of the Yogadrstisamuccaya. For Sanskrit text confer with source document(s) to prevent transliteration mistakes.
