It’s not an easy task to highlight the importance of Yoga in secular times.Let’s bring into light the intricate subtleties governing the Yogic sutras (Principles Of Yoga). I’m unfolding its primary usage in brief. Yoga is a certain mean to establish communion with Lord. Upanishads state that mind is the cause of bondage and liberation.Being deluded by Maya (Maya parimohittam) the human beings come to give rise to vain perception leading to sense-gratification (vichitrabhoga).
Bhakti Yoga, Gnana Yoga, Dhyana Yoga and Karma Yoga are the four standard paths to crush the reign of ignorance. Karma yoga is prescribed for those whom earth-shattering endeavors were close to heart; Bhakti Yoga is associated with people having a developed heart faculty while Jnana-Yoga is for people dealing in intellectual tantrums. Dhyana Yoga, on the other hand, is meant to bring us closer to bliss and peace via meditation.
Kaivalyopanishsad states the Dhyana Yoga process in crystal clear terms: “In an undisturbed place resting in a comfortable posture, clean and pure, with neck, head and body in one line held erect in a mental attitude of detachment (Sanyasa). Having controlled the senses, saluting one’s own teacher mentally with reverence come to mediate on the Untainted, the Pure, the Clear, the Griefless within the lotus of heart.
“What’s the result of establishing a bond with Lord? Surely, what one come’s to gain is not illusory as the achievements of this world attained after mind-boggling mental gymnastic. Talking about the gains Kaivalyopanishad states that seekers in end ‘gain the world of Brahman and liberating themselves from everything gain the highest Immortality.
Needless to state,the only goal of life is to strike union with Krishna or Parabrahman.”Wherever is Krishna, the lord of yoga; and wherever is Arjuna, the archer; there will be everlasting prosperity, victory, happiness, and morality. This is my conviction.” (Bhagavad Geeta)
