Loads of people are practicing yoga nowadays, either being fitness lovers or for pleasure; but few of us practice this art for the attainment of peace, self-contentment, inner joy and relaxation of soul. Yoga is one of the ancient art form of India and holds divine significance for people around the globe.
Yoga means union with God. This union is a conscious union. We are all united with God but we are not aware of it so when we practice Yoga, we become conscious of our union with God. Yoga is a spiritual journey from getting rid of the stressful life and achieving bliss and happiness.
- Yoga is not just a practice, it’s an inner subject which has to be lived, loved and cared. Yoga transcends us to real satisfaction and gaining free consciousness.
- The art of yoga brings our mind, body and soul in harmony that helps us to connect with the cosmic energy of the Universe.
- During the practice of yoga, one has to focus on the divine context rather than the superficial level. By continuously working with this thought, one shreds of the artificial attainment of beauty and gains peace and joy.
- Numerous troubles and tensions surround us the entire day and we might try to control hem to keep ourselves calm. Remember yoga is not about getting rid of problems or controlling them, rather it is about keeping the tolerance and inner peace intact and facing the situation.
- Yoga aware us about our very existence through simple techniques of focussing on our body processes and breathing, which in turn leads to better understanding of our own body and mind and expressing gratitude.
- We usually admire the creation and forget the creator, thus yoga instils us with the balance of admiring not only the creation but also the creator himself.
- Yoga fills us with the feeling of surrendering ourselves for the welfare of humanity, which in turn leads us to living for the supreme energy.
Thus yoga is the journey of attaining enlightenment like Lord Shiva, Lord Mahavir and Lord Buddha and becoming closer to our ultimate goal of life which is oneness with the supreme master. By gaining peace of soul, we would be contended as we will each closer to God.
