Gidi Ifergan [+-]
Monash University
Dr Gidi Ifergan researches the Indian Philosophy and Tibetan Buddhism at Monash University. Since 1997, Gidi has practiced and taught yoga in Australia and Israel. He teaches classic Indian yoga and Dzogchen, a stream of Tibetan Buddhism. Both of these practices are capable of healing suffering and unlocking the intrinsic clarity that already resides within us. Gidi’s yoga practice and classes are integrated with a rich understanding of the philosophical and spiritual roots of yoga. This is informed by the many years Gidi has spent studying the traditional teachings of Indian and Tibetan yogas, including visits to Varanasi, India, Tibet and Bhutan.


In the Epilogue, as the yoga practitioner overcome his habitual tendencies, his stillness and clarity develop and fulfil the moral principles of yoga. He then gains special powers while violent behaviour, as put by Vyasa, leaves the offending person in the underworld, battered and bruised, conveying a personal system of reward and punishment. However, fulfilment of moral principles may be realised through understanding embedded in yogic psychological processing while turning at times to Western psychology as complementary temporary means.
