Abstract

Ce volume réunit quatre articles abordant des thèmes philosophiques. Le premier étudie les analogies de structure entre le yoga et l’hésychasme et le problème historique de l’influence possible du premier sur le second. Le deuxième article est consacré à l’arrière-plan doctrinal du yoga, qui est « apavāda », s’intéresse à l’ontologie négative dans la Grèce platonicienne et néo-platonicienne, dans l’Inde et dans l’Occident chrétien. Le quatrième considère l’absolu — dont la détermination est d’une importance capitale pour l’étude et la compréhension de tout système philosophique — dans le bouddhisme, qui a longtemps dérouté les penseurs occidentaux.

Abstract

This volume explores aspects of yoga over a period of about 2500 years. In its first part, it investigates facets of the South Asian and Tibetan traditions of yoga, such as the evolution of posture practice, the relationship between yoga and sex, yoga in the theistic context, the influence of Buddhism on early yoga, and the encounter of Islam with classical yoga. The second part addresses aspects of modern globalised yoga and its historical formation, as for example the emergence of yoga in Viennese occultism, the integration of yoga and nature cure in modern India, the eventisation of yoga in a global setting, and the development of Patañjali’s iconography. In keeping with the current trend in yoga studies, the emphasis of the volume is on the practice of yoga and its theoretical underpinnings.

Abstract

Bien qu’il ait seulement le statut d’un simple upāgama (A. “secondaire”), le Mṛgendra contient l’un des exposés les plus détaillés du shivaïsme philosophique dualiste qui soient parvenus jusqu’à nous. Il est considéré comme faisant autorité à la fois dans la tradition cachemirienne du Nord et dans la tradition Śaivasiddhānta du Sud. Il traite de l’émanation des tattvas (“réalités” ou “principes”) depuis Śiva jusqu’à l’élément terre. Il décrit également la génération successive des Mantras, Mantreśvara, etc. Il accorde également beaucoup de place à diverses questions de logique et de cosmologie. On y trouve encore une réfutation relativement précise de certaines écoles philosophiques adverses, notamment du Jainisme et du matérialisme. La section consacrée à la description des pratiques yoguiques présente un intérêt particulier dans la mesure où elle fourmille de détails “techniques” qu’il serait difficile de trouver ailleurs.

Abstract

Relative to the extensive neuroscientific work on seated meditation practices, far less studies have investigated the neural mechanisms underlying movement-based contemplative practices such as yoga or tai chi. Movement-based practices have, however, been found to be effective for relieving the symptoms of several clinical conditions, and to elicit measurable changes in physiological, neural, and behavioral parameters in healthy individuals. An important challenge for neuroscience is therefore to advance our understanding of the neurophysiological and neurocognitive mechanisms underlying these observed effects, and this Research Topic aims to make a contribution in this regard. It showcases the current state of the art of investigations on movement-based practices including yoga, tai chi, the Feldenkrais Method, as well as dance. Featured contributions include empirical research, proposals of theoretical frameworks, as well as novel perspectives on a variety of issues relevant to the field. This Research Topic is the first of its kind to specifically attempt a neurophysiological and neurocognitive characterization that spans multiple mindful movement approaches, and we trust it will be of interest to basic scientists, clinical researchers, and contemplative practitioners alike.

Abstract

During the height of Muslim power in South Asia, Muslim nobles of the Mughal Empire (1526-1857) patronized the translation of a large body of Hindu Sanskrit texts into the Persian language, including the Upaniṣads, the Bhagavad Gītā, and numerous other works. In Translating Wisdom, Shankar Nair reconstructs the intellectual processes that underlay these translations, traversing an exceptional linguistic scope including Sanskrit, Arabic, and Persian materials. Using the 1597 Persian rendition of the Sanskrit Yoga Vāsiṣṭha as a case study, Nair traces the intellectual exchanges by which teams of Muslim and Hindu translators, working collaboratively and drawing upon their respective religio-philosophical traditions, crafted a novel lexicon with which to express Hindu philosophical wisdom in an Islamic Persian idiom. How did these translators find a vocabulary through which to convey Hindu, Sanskrit articulations of God, conceptions of salvation and the afterlife, Hindu ritual notions, etc., in Islamic Persian terms? How did these two communities of scholars devise a shared language with which to communicate and to render one another’s religious and philosophical views mutually comprehensible? Translating Wisdom illustrates how these early modern Muslim and Hindu scholars found the words and the means to put their traditions into conversation with one another, achieving a nuanced inter-religious and cross-philosophical dialogue significant not only to South Asia’s past, but also its present.

Abstract

This Special Issue of Religions brings together a talented group of international scholars who have studied and written on the Hindu tradition. The topic of religious experience is much debated in the field of Religious Studies, and here, we present studies of the Hindu religious experience explored from a variety of regions and perspectives. Our intention is to show that the religious experience has long been an important part of Hinduism, and should not be dismissed or considered as irrelevant. As a body of scholarship, these articles refine our understanding of the range and variety of religious experience in Hinduism. In addition to their substantive contributions, the authors also show important new directions in the study of the third-largest religion in the world, with over one billion followers.
