The Path Of Yoga
In modern times yoga has become synonymous with merely physical postures, under-rating its fundamental purpose, whereas it is a practical, methodical and systematic discipline which aims to help the aspirant realise true nature. The Path Of Yoga, celebrating this ancient tradition, is a tribute to all rishis and sages over the millennia who selflessly disseminated this science of human evolution for the welfare of mankind. It gives the insightful exposition of the eight progressive limbs of yoga, as delineated by Rishi Patanjali in the Patanjali Yoga Sutras – yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, samadhi. Extolling the path of yoga as a spiritual discipline, revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa explains how this journey begins from moral codes of conduct to invigorating asana, then pranayama, calming the mind and subsequently leading to internalisation of the senses. This integration enables one to deal with the challenges and obstacles on the path. It facilitates exploration of the deeper recesses of the mind, body and self, eventually culminating into the absorption of mind, samadhi. From being a self-centred, egotistical person to becoming a selfless, illuminated, enlightened yogi, this mystical and intriguing journey is well within the reach of one and all, under the guidance of a realised master.
Is the cyclic process of breathing in and out Pranayama? Most of us believe the answer to be yes, but in reality the meaning of pranayama is not limited to breathing exercises. It is actually a combination of two words: ‘Prana’ and ‘Ayama’. To understand further watch this enlightening video that is not only inspirational but also reveals to us the height of yoga! Watch revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa talk about the second yoga sutra laid down by Patanjali, and also paying tribute to great yogis who have set great examples for us to follow, putting the seed of this thought in our mind, for a new beginning, a fresh start!
