Secret of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika[edit]

In most of the ancient Yoga scriptures the litteral translation is incomprehensive. The reason is that a symbolic language is used, called Sandhya Bhasa (twilight language). Only people having reached an awakened state can understand this language. The Hatha Yoga Pradipika is an example of one of these scriptures. Suddenly it becomes clear. The message of that book is a revolution in health care and aging control. It can help mankind not only to overcome many modern problems, but also to uplift consciousness to the highest levels and reach Raja Yoga. You can find a free and complete translation of the book to download in www.raja-yoga.org

Interesting. There is an article The Twilight Language that describes sāṃdhyābhāṣā in tantra, very similar to this description. It mentions the "secret language, that great convention of the yoginis, which the Śrāvakas and others cannot unriddle". It is also mentioned in the articles Vajrayana, Vaishnava-Sahajiya and Yantra.

While i think the link is more than sensible, maybe it needs re-work for comprehensibility (the faculty of being understandable). Wakari07 (talk) 14:15, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
