Yoga and Meditations

What is YOGA:

Yoga has its origins in the Vedas, the oldest record of Indian culture. Yoga was systematized by the great Indian sage Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras as a special Darshana (philosophy). Although this work was followed by many other important texts on Yoga, Patanjali's Yoga Sutra remained certainly the most significant. It is the only book which has touched almost all the aspects of human life.


The Literal Meaning of Yoga

The literal meaning of the word Yoga in Sanskrit is INTEGRATION. In this sense Yoga represents a process through which one can learn to live in the most integrated way. It involves therefore the process of identification and then elimination of all that would contribute in disintegration. In this integrated way of living, the process of identification of all the elements causing illness and the use of appropriate techniques to neutralize their ill effects became one of the primary concerns of Yoga. Thus Yoga which essentially is a Science of personal growth for spiritual experiences has simultaneously become a Science of Health and Healing.
Yoga is a science as well as an art of healthy physical, mental, moral and spiritual living. It is in no way limited by race, age, sex, religion, cast or creed and can be practiced by those who seek an education on better living and those who wants to have a more meaningful life.
