Published by Bindu Magazine
Yoga, tantra and meditation periodical of the Scandinavian Yoga and Meditation School.

Bindu Magazine investigates science and art related to meditation, yoga and tantra. The numerous topics in Bindu are based on methods that concern human development. It is written, edited and designed by people with a first hand knowledge of these methods. A contemporary wisdom.

In this issue:
- Editorial: Welcome to Bindu
- On the ability to experience (by Swami Janakananda): “Say the troll’s name, and it disappears”, goes the old fairy tale. “The teacher’s foremost task is to awaken the student into being able to experience - perhaps the most releasing and curative ability we possess.”

- Headstand (by Tine Elmer and Mira): When you stand on your head, you see everything in a new perspective.
- Nose cleansing (by Joachim Rodenbeck): In Sweden, nose cleansing has been recommended by doctors as part of a project concerning toxic substances.

 Welcome to Bindu
Periodical and program
After a pause in publication we areagain ready to take up the inspirationto make Bindu. From now on the periodical will be released four times ayear. Each time with acontent of articles, thatshed light on variousaspects of yoga, tantraand meditation.
Need forinformation
In recent yearsmeditation andyoga has on severaloccasions been thesubject for publicdebate. ScandinavianYoga and MeditationSchool has activelytaken part in thisdebate. We havealso made ourselvesavailable for elaborating uponinformation for thosewho have requestedit, and have ingeneral experiencedan extensive needfor informationconcerning the art of living and science thatmeditation, tantra and yoga is.With Bindu we wish to inform andinspire, and if possible bring clarity,where misunderstanding and falseconceptions prevail.
Quality of teaching

Yoga has a good reputation,and to live up to this and to keep ahigh standard, we have recommenededthe evening school leaders to employonly conscientious and qualiedyoga teachers, with arecognised education behind them.In all probability it canwork to teach from personal experience, butexperience can be builtupon fantasy, and whenwe sometimes see whatis passed out under thename of meditation- even under the nameof yoga, we don’trecognise it.

necessary experience, imaginationand desire for discovery, but mustalso be rmly anchored in the originaltradition with its rich knowledge. Thiscomes about in the form of a thorougheducation and training in a tried andtested system. In this way one ensuresthat it is liberation and concentration,that is achieved, and not confusion,dreams and dull actions.
