My Path Trough Yoga (Part Four)

In the early 1980’s I was presented with the book “The Tao of Physics” by Fritjof Capra as a parting gift from my supervisor who was more like a mentor. At the time I had only a beginner’s level of understanding regarding Eastern Mysticism and even less of an understanding of modern physics.  However I was interested in both of these areas, so I held onto the book, and recently presented a book report on this book for my Yoga Teacher Training Program at Dig Yoga in Frenchtown NJ.  I was glad I held onto it, and waited to read it, because my understanding of the physical world and even more so the world of the Eastern mystics is greatly enhanced compared to when I received the book.

 Fritjof Capra set out to demonstrate how modern physics illuminates the Cosmic Dance of the universe, and that this new understanding of how the universe works has more in common with the belief system of Eastern religions, than it does Western traditions developed around Greek philosophers. While the roots of physics go back to the works of  Aristotle and the Greeks with their discoveries of geometry and other scientific principles, it was the work of Newton that held court as the principles of how the natural world functioned.  The Newtonian mechanistic view was rocked by experimentation led by Albert Einstein.  Capra states that “At the beginning of modern physics stands the intellectual feats of one man: Albert Einstein…  Einstein’s theory of relativity unified and completed the structure of classical physics…. it involved drastic changes in the concept of space and time and undermined one of the foundations of the Newtonian world view.”
