A brief note and information of Yoga:
Yoga meaning Unity to be Oneness, derived from ancient Sanskrit word which means to join. The science of life, the integration of body, mind and soul!
What is Yoga?
A perfect union of the spirit to the divine, via tools left behind from rishis (hermits), ascetics and yogis of ages past.
The Eight Fold Path of Yoga (not to be confused with Buddha’s Eight Fold Path), from sage Patanjali s yoga sutra delves deeply into the morality of living and plunges into the human psyche.
Consists of Yama (self restraints), Niyama (self observances) Asana, Pranayama (breath techniques), Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (identification with pure consciousness).
Yoga conjures up with images and postures (Asanas) to develop flexibility, general body health and of course awareness.
This is just the beginning, while yoga’s central theme remains the highest goal of the spiritual path; yogic practices can provide direct and substantial benefits to everyone regardless of their spiritual aims.
An inter-relationship between yoga and meditation:
Part of Lord Buddha’s contribution to humanity was to focus on meditation to develop Samadhi (while focusing on a platform of ethics and morality). You can choose whether to focus wholly on yoga, or more specifically on meditation, or saturate yourself in both of these. For millennia, the Himalayas have played a key role in mankind s journey to self realization. Its total isolation from the rest of the world, its serene solitude has been an ideal environment for looking within. Nepal has inherited this unique past which is evident in its everyday life and culture when it comes to diving deep into your consciousness or floating in total awareness. It still does have individuals and institutions capable of guiding you to this noble path; to the cosmic universe which has an infinite beauty of its own.
