🕉Between Sound and Silence in Early Yoga: Meditation on OM at the Moment of Death - Dr Finnian Gerety (Brown University, USA)

This talk examines how Vedic texts and rituals inform the construction of mantra-based contemplative practices in early Yoga. Tracing the development of meditation on the sacred syllable “OM” at the moment of death, Dr Gerety will argue that the techniques of several early Yoga systems have roots in the little-known rite of “yoking” (yukti) from the Jaiminīya school of Sāmaveda. In this rite, the seated practitioner controls his breath and senses, visualizes the liturgy, and chants OM out loud while meditating in silence on other mantras—with the aim of ascending to the sun and attaining immortality.

Jaiminīya sources thus furnish the oldest link in a chain of Indian soteriologies associated with OM, death, and solar ascent—a genealogy that extends from the Vedas up through foundational discourses of early Yoga. By examining the tension between sound and silence in contemplative practices involving OM, this talk aims to bring attention to the interplay of mantra and meditation, and to invite a reappraisal of Brahmanical contributions to premodern Yoga systems.#finianmckean 6.00-7.20pm, Khalili Lecture Theatre (KLT), SOAS.

Meet Jamie Bourgeois. .
.
@jamiebourgeois is a deeply thoughtful artist. Her work is both functional, loving and uplifting. Through her natural dye practice she brings awareness to the flora and fauna around us. To quote her “With a strong appreciation for the Earth we inhabit & with a ravenous appetite for all things natural dye, I create illustrated conceptual utilitarian textiles that remind and raise awareness of the importance of our surrounding native ecosystems. My hope is that these utilitarian objects will start conversations and be small reminders of how every choice we make matters.” Follow @jamiebourgeois to see more of her process, support her work at jamiebourgeois.com and scroll through to see her work with moss, creatures and plants. I love your work and I am so glad that you share your ideas with us all. Thank YOU!

Yesterday @thefarwoods posted a fab diy on how to mend your socks 🧦 🧶. Much to my surprise they looked similar to the socks I just mended while chilling at #chezpatchysmithy...you can use a crochet hook or a needle but save those socks!
