Abstract

16.05.2019

Suzanne Newcombe speaks on 'The In-between Worlds of Yogis: Body Jumping, Immortality and Kayakalpa practices'

Abstract: This paper will consider some of the many techniques of indefinite life extension used within Indian yogic and Ayurvedic traditions. The process of achieving ultimate liberation may involve moving a consciousness in-between bodies, existing outside of a body, or going through a literal rebirthing process. The later practice, known as kayakalpa, has undergone a small revival in the last century.
