The Four Aims of Life with Rose Baudin

The yoga tradition offers a paradigm for a life of deep self-examination: the purusharthas, or four aims of life. They are dharma (duty, ethics), artha (prosperity, wealth), kama (pleasure, sensual gratification), and moksha (the pursuit of liberation).

Purusha means "soul"—the essential Self that is unchanging, that belongs to the universe. Artha means "the ability" or "for the purpose of." Taken together, purushartha means "for the purpose of the soul," and the very concept asks that you take the broadest view of your life.

Rose has a very special way of bringing traditional yoga philosophy to life by infusing it her own experience of the material. Her lectures are always dynamic, fun and rich with deep realisations.
