Colloquium “Yoga. Ascetics, yogis and Sufis” (Paris, musée Guimet)


Ascetics, yogis and Sufis, from renunciation to a promise of well-being? Renunciation, which is present in all the religious currents of the Indian world, has taken quite distinct forms within the different communities of practitioners. Who were these champions of asceticism? What goals did they seek to achieve? What place did what we now call Yoga have in this quest? How did it evolve from a religious discipline to a promise of well-being?
