Romania is Georges Enescu’s music, Dracula and Nadia with (her perfect 10 score) for me! :)

Though he alluded his Romanian roots at times, the renowned Romanian scholar of religion Mircia Eliade laid the groundwork for the Western understanding of Yoga. Drawing on his formative years in India he provided a comprehensive survey of Yoga in theory and practice from its earliest antecedents in the Vedas through the twentieth century.

The Oxford Research Encyclopedia refers his book ‘Yoga: Immortality and Freedom’ as the pioneering modern academic source on yoga. It is unique because it deals with the “idea of Yoga as a whole!” He believed in yoga’s sameness across traditions, exactly as Swami Vivekananda did, arguing that its aim is an “eternal present” in which the practitioner is liberated from the temporal human condition.

Thank you very much for reading my work and appreciating it.
