“Truth has many paths and therefore is forever fluid and elastic. The one Truth carries in itself all that ever happens” – Master Yogin Sundernath (Shandor Remete)
Tibet House welcomes Sundernath, Shandor Remete, the founder of Shadow Yoga and Nṛtta Sādhanā for a lecture on his life studies in hatha yoga.
The name Shadow Yoga is derived from the 6th chapter of the ancient tantrika treatise ‘The Shiva-Svarodaya’ (the birth of the breath of life revealed by the god Shiva). This chapter, entitled ‘Yoga of the Shadow Man’, deals with the intricate manifestations of the shadow and their significance both inside and outside the human organism.
The teaching of the Shadow School is based upon the ancient Hatha Yogic texts, which state that all fixed forms should be designed to develop the practice of freestyle. Freestyle is a necessary step in the cultivation of longevity and enlightenment. The Ashtanga Hrdaya of Vagbhata, a primary ayurvedic text, also contains a chapter on the shadow which deals with diagnostic principles. There is also a story about Allama Prabhudeva, (one of the famous forefathers of Hatha Yoga), in which he describes the human body as nothing but layers of frozen shadows. According to Hatha Yogic anatomy the body is composed of three discrete bodies and five sheaths (coverings or shadows). The practice of Hatha Yoga has evolved with the purpose of dissolving these shadows.
Shandor is the founder of Shadow Yoga and Nṛtta Sādhanā. Shandor was fortunate to be born into a household at the south eastern tip of the great Hungarian plain where the art of yoga was a daily presence. From this seed his destiny on the path of yoga unfolded. He is an initiate of the Nath-Sampradaya Hatha Yogins of Nepal, descendants of Sri Gorakhanath and his Guru Sri Matsyendranath. These great Yogins, were the forefathers of Shadanga (six-limbed) Yoga, which later became known as Hatha Yoga – the science bestowed on humanity by Adinatha (the Lord Shiva).
