Every human being is born with powers
to make life more meaningful and complete.
Physical power fulfils our physical needs
through action; psychological power enables
us to achieve the impossible in a civilised
world and moral (inborn) power helps us
master the 'art of living' by inculcating
good values. Unfortunately, this inborn
power is the least utilised, leading to
physical and psychological breakdowns.
Yoga, rooted in ancient history, helps
to overcome these physical and mental
diseases by generating cosmic powers.
Yoga is usually associated with yogis;
as a method used at high altitudes to
attain peace. However, it has no relevance
to any particular religion.
It is a way of life to control the mind,
body and soul.
Yoga helps us to get in touch with reality
by being in touch with the inner self.
Yoga helps to achieve that elusive contentment
which no materialistic luxury of the modern
world can bring, to strike a perfect balance
between the mind and body and harmony
between man and the universe through yogic
kriyas, yogasanas, chitta shuddhir and
yoga nidra. It relaxes the physical and
psychological powers and recharges them
for better performance.
Yoga, as defined by Maharishi Patanjali,
one of India's greatest sages, is a technique
used to control thought waves in the mind.
He calls it a way of life, beyond the
consciousness of body, mind and intellect.
