Yoga & Meditation

To bring out the spiritual dimension in your life, it is wise to use certain tools, which have already been established. In ancient times people went deep into the understanding of the Self and brought out spiritual practices, which help you to remain centered in the Self. These tools have been handed down over the centuries, and are so beneficial that they hasten progress on the path.

Yoga is a 6000-year-old scientific technique for spiritual development. Yoga is a Sanskrit word meaning "union", thus its goal is the unification of body, mind and spirit. Because the science of Yoga is so old, it has developed many paths towards obtaining the goal of union. This state of union is called "samadhi" or enlightenment, where we experience the unity of not just our mind-body-spirit, but experience the whole universe as one interconnected whole.

Yoga is not a religion, but a scientific methodology of the experience and integration of the mind, body and spirit. Yoga is a toolbox for spiritual, mental and physical health and well being. It is a philosophy of life, a code of conduct, an attitude and an approach, as well as an art of living which is capable of ensuring physical well-being, mental peace, harmony, moral elevation and spiritual uplift.

In the practice of Meditation you can directly experience the vastness of the Self. Our first and foremost commitment is to do service in the world. If there is fear in your life, it is because of a lack of commitment. If there is confusion in your life, it is because of lack of commitment. The very thought, 'I am here in this world to do service', dissolves the "I" and when "I" dissolves, worries dissolve. Service is not something you do out of convenience, or for pleasure, you have to commit.

An uncommitted mind is miserable. A committed mind may experience rough weather but will reap the fruits of its toil. When you make service your sole purpose in life, it eliminates fear and brings focus and purposefulness in your mind and action, bringing long term joy in the resolution of the short term problems!
