Tide to study Eight Disciplines of Yoga for Xotinx

The Eight Disciplines of Yoga


Hiroshi Motoyama “Theories of the Chakras: Bridge to Higher Consciousness”


The Eight Disciplines of Yoga
Yogic practice is comprised of eight types or “limbs” of
discipline. They were first codified by Patanjali, who compiled
his Yoga Sutras in the fifth or sixth century B.C., based
upon the teachings of various Yoga sects. The eight disciplines
(l)Yama (abstention from evil conduct)
(2)Niyama (virtuous conduct)
(3)Asana (physical postures)
(4)Pranayama (regulation of the breath)
(5)Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses)
(6)Dharana (concentration)
(7)Dhyana (meditation)
(8)Samadhi (union of subject and object)
These disciplines may be classified into five groups:
(1) Moral training: Yama, Niyama. Purification and harmonization
of the mind.
(2) Physical training: Asana, Pranayama. Regulation of vital
energy and blood circulation; regulation of nervous
and muscle functions.
(3) Mental training: Pratyahara, Dharana. Breaking
through the shell of the self through introversion and
the control of consciousness.
(4) Spiritual training: Dhyana. Attaining superconsciousness
and contact with spiritual beings.
(5) Samadhi: Oneness with the Divine, the highest stage of
spiritual development.


“Don Xotinx” (The Gothing, Goting) is the indigenous spiritual process of Northern Europe, which erupts in the form of Gothic Architecture, Books, Music, Art and Movies through out the Ages. In today’s pop culture a New Ager would call his version of this process becoming “Enlightened”. In Jungian terms it would be called the “Individuation” Process where the Alchemical like Archetypes of Vampires, Witches, Wizards, etc. magically transform blood in to the “Exlire of Life” – mortals into “Immortals”. This is what happens to Paul Atreides, the protagonist of Dune, when he drinks the “Water of Life”. Transformed he cries out – “Father … Father the Sleeper has Awakened!” (See “Dune……The Water of Life (Alternate).)

In the medieval Judeo-Christian MATRIX this Xotinx would be condemned as a heresy and Heretics where burned at the stake. Medieval mystics like Meister Eckhart may of transmuted this Xoting to more acceptable Christian terms like “turning to the Godhead” (note the similarity between God, Goth, Got, Gott) but he was still excommunicated by the Vatican. Directors like George Lucas of Star Wars tried to call it the “Force” but the Wachowski Brothers of the “Matrix” realized that the process of breaking out of this Matrix is taking the Red Pill — “turning to the Dark Side”, the Jungian Shadow, the Faustian Mephistopheles, following the God of Dreams – Morpheus. (See “marix-the pill“)

The Canadian psychiatrist Dr. Buck coined the modern term “Cosmic Consciousness“. The Zen Buddhists called it “Satori” and the Chinese called it “The Tao”. The Tibetan yoga Milarepa called it the “Dharamakaya”. In today’s culture the Xotinx is best understood through the philosopher, arguably the greatest philosopher of the 20th century, Martin Heidegger. In Heideggarian terms I would simply call the process “the SILENCE-TO-BE”. rro5ohh
