Actualizing Power(s) and Crafting a Self in Kalarippayattu: A South Indian Martial Art and the Yoga and Ayuvedic Paradigms

This essay is an introduction to kalarippayattu—a martial/medical/meditation discipline traditionally practiced in India since at least the 12th century CE, and introduces the history and a few of the assumptions about the body, mind, and practice shared with yoga and Ayurveda which parallel the way some masters still teach kalarippayattu.
