Student Question: Is Sat Yoga, or does Sat Yoga consider itself, a shamanistic school? And if it does, how does it differentiate from other shamanic schools?

“The original shaman is a yogi. There’s no distinction. It’s only later that in different cultures, that take on the use of this term, that there become variations of its meaning.”

In this enlightening video, Shunyamurti, the founder of the Sat Yoga Institute, explains the origin and fall of the great shaman and his role in society as a healer to the pseudo/psychedelic-shamanism of modern Westerners (such as Timothy Leary and Terrence McKenna), who “make the mistake of believing that the relative mind is the goal rather than the Absolute mind. . . . But the problem is that the brain’s chemistry regulates the relative mind of the ego system, and indeed it can produce . . . interdimensional perceptions, but it does not reach the larger sphere of the absolute mind.” Recorded on the afternoon of Tuesday, September 8, 2009.
