Diccionario del Yoga

Historia, práctica, filosofía y mantras



Abstract

Many yoga practitioners have ever wondered what the literal translation of a posture’s name is, how to pronounce it correctly or what we are saying when reciting a mantra.
This practical dictionary aims to ensure the correct use of the Sanskrit language in the field of yoga and is aimed primarily at practitioners and teachers of any school, without previous knowledge of Sanskrit. It includes the Sanskrit terms most commonly used in daily yoga classes: the names of the postures (asana) and other Hatha-yoga techniques (prāṇāyāma, mudrā, Bandha and kriyā), fundamental philosophical concepts, a didactic translation of the Yogasūtra of Patañjali, some mantras, as well as a brief history of yoga that allows to contextualize the use of all the terminology.
This lexicon does not follow the format of a traditional dictionary, but a reference manual, manageable, visual and practical. The Sanskrit terms are offered analyzed, translated, commented and accompanied by illustrative images and audios with their correct pronunciation. It can be used for individual study or as a didactic resource in yoga teacher training courses.
All the audios, with the voice of Kausthub Desikachar, can be downloaded from the web of the publisher: https://www.herdereditorial.com/diccionario-de-yoga

Vislumbres de lo real

Religiones y revelación



Abstract

Glimpses of Reality. Religions and revelation [Vislumbres de lo real. Religiones y revelación]

Each religious tradition is the repository of a core of revelation entrusted to it. It gives access to a hint of reality. Without capturing this core, it is impossible to understand the constellation of symbols and beliefs that characterise each religion and emanate from such epicentres. This essay broaches the subject of revelatory experience in humanity's major religious configurations, with the intention of establishing criteria of discernment to assess the quality of such phenomena and manifestations. The author looks at the mystic background of each tradition, noting that all true religious experience has the ability to open up to a greater reality in the three dimensions that constitute the Real, that is, to a greater sense of transcendence, to a subtler and deeper understanding of what is human and to greater respect and reverence for nature.

Javier Melloni (Barcelona, 1962) is a Jesuit, theologian and anthropologist specialising in comparative mysticism and inter-religious dialogue. He is a member of the Justice and Christianity Study Centre in Barcelona and teaches at the Faculty of Theology of Catalonia and the Sant Cugat Fundamental Theology Institute. Important examples of his literary output are Vislumbres de lo real [Glimpses of Reality] and El Cristo interior [Christ Within], both published by Herder Editorial.

Camino hacia el Silencio

Pedagogía del despertar interior



Abstract

The Way to Silence. An instruction towards inner awakening [Camino hacia el silencio. Pedagogía del despertar interior]

Based on his experience in therapeutic practice and his work with meditation groups, Esteve Humet decided to write about this way to the discovery of inner Silence. The text is aimed not so much at helping those who are already initiated in meditation or regularly practising some form of prayer, but, above all, at those who may hear about the subject and wish to get practical experience of it, but cannot find anyone to help them in this exploration.

Meditation is presented here not only as an activity, as a pedagogical process with a wide range of possibilities, but also as a life attitude with simplicity at its base. The author wishes the proposed exercises to be, rather than links, aids that are compatible with any religious belief or choice. Thus, they are all relative and, therefore, optional, i.e. means rather than ends, since the sole purpose is the fullness of Silence.

Esteve Humet (1947) is a clinical and transpersonal psychologist. He specialises in meditation and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). Drawing on two sources of inspiration, Christianity and Hinduism, his life has also followed two paths: one of solitude – deepened through silence – and one of offering refuge – whether therapeutic, or in connection with meditation and spirituality. He has translated, among others, Anthony De Mello, Henry Le Saux and the Upanishads. This is his first publication in Spanish.

Voces de la mística II


Abstract

Voices of Mysticism II [Voces de la mística II ]

The excellent response given to the first volume of Voices of Mysticism has encouraged the author and publisher to publish a second anthology of texts on the search for the transcendental, which has been a constant throughout history in all ages and cultures. Indeed, mystical experience goes beyond any denominational or conceptual boundaries. Today, it is the subject of study by the most diverse disciplines, from theology to brain science, taking in anthropology and aesthetics. As stated by the renowned theologian, Juan José Tamayo, "new research shatters the beatified and elusive image of the mystics, to show their politically incorrect, religiously subversive and theologically creative character".

As in the first volume, the texts included are an enriched selection from the columns published by Javier Melloni over the last decade in the journal of literature and opinion, El Ciervo. They continue to be presented in chronological order, covering a range of topics, from the Upanishads of the Indian Vedic tradition to the Buddhist monk and peace activist, Thich Nhat Hanh, and taking in Plato, Hildegard of Bingen, William Blake and Albert Einstein.

Javier Melloni (Barcelona, 1962) is a Jesuit, theologian and anthropologist specialising in comparative mysticism and inter-religious dialogue. He is a member of the Justice and Christianity Study Centre in Barcelona and teaches at the Faculty of Theology of Catalonia and the Sant Cugat Fundamental Theology Institute. Important examples of his literary output are Vislumbres de lo real [Glimpses of Reality] and El Cristo interior [Christ Within], both published by Herder Editorial.

The search for the transcendental has been a constant throughout history, in all ages and cultures. Indeed, mystical experience goes beyond any denominational or conceptual boundaries. Today, it is the subject of study by the most diverse disciplines, from theology to brain science, taking in anthropology and aesthetics. As stated by the renowned theologian, Juan José Tamayo, "new research shatters the beatified and elusive image of the mystics, to show their politically incorrect, religiously subversive and theologically creative character".

This anthology is an example of this search. The thirty-three texts included are an enriched selection from the columns published by Javier Melloni over the last decade in the journal of literature and opinion, El Ciervo. They include, in chronological order, examples ranging from the classic Tao Te Ching, attributed Lao Tzu, to the controversial Carlos Castaneda, with others by Plotinus, Ibn Arabi, San Juan de la Cruz and Simone Weil.

Hacia una espiritualidad laica

Sin creencias, sin religiones, sin dioses



Abstract

Towards a secular spirituality. Without beliefs, without religions, without gods [Hacia una espiritualidad laica. Sin creencias sin religiones, sin dioses].

This book attempts to retrieve the human and spiritual wisdom of the great religious traditions for our time, in a cultural context that has become unavoidably secular.

We live in an age of radical changes affecting all spheres of our life, including religion. According to the author, however, far from lamenting the great crisis of the religions, we must face the challenge of cultivating a creative spirituality, free from the limits set by exclusive beliefs and orthodoxies. In order to do so, we must reread – with courage and in depth – the religions and spiritual traditions on which our ancestors founded their human and spiritual qualities. This is because we also need, now more than ever, human and spiritual qualities to guide our future and to manage sustainably our powerful sciences and technologies.

Marià Corbí Quiñonero, born in Valencia in 1932, has always lived in Barcelona, where she is the director of the Centre for the Study of Religious Traditions (CETR). With a degree in theology and a doctorate in philosophy, she has taught at the ESADE business and law school and the Vidal y Barraquer Foundation. She has dedicated her life to studying the religious and ideological consequences of changes generated by post-industrial societies and innovation.
