Above is the first in a series of posts of video loops of all the main mantras for mridanga. As I get the chance I will be posting more and more videos, so you can follow along. They will be in sequential order for learning, so slowly it will get more and more challenging. You are welcome to send me feedback through the contact page.

Buddhi Yoga and Yogamāyā

I was editing Sermons Volume One today to go into the archive and found a very interesting reference by Śrīla Śrīdhar Mahārāj about buddhi-yoga. Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākur writes in his Gītā commentary about how all the different forms of yoga mentioned come under the one umbrella of buddhi yoga and that bhakti yoga is the perfectional stage of the overall process of buddhi yoga. So in the third chapter of Sermons One, Śrīdhar Mahārāj mentions that buddhi yoga is a function of yogamāyā, where in the seed verses of chapter 10 Kṛṣṇa says dadāmi buddhi-yogaṁ taṁ.

So here we can understand that the “i give them the revelation by which they can dive into service life” means immersion within the principle of yogamāyā, the divine illusory potency by which all those servitors know exactly what they are to do and are supplied with all the ingredients for that activity.
