YOGA AND MEDITATION
YOGA AND MEDITATION
- The word yoga means ‘union.’
- Union means you begin to experience the universality of who you are.
- When you have started experiencing everything as a part of you, it is liberation, it is mukti, it is ultimate freedom through Yoga and meditation.
- Yoga is all about harmonizing the body with the mind and breath, yoga is beyond imagination, beyond expectation and beyond limitations.
“Meditation” or “Dhyana” means to go beyond the limitations of the physical body and the mind. And looking your body from within, feeling the peace and calmness persisting inside.
It is simply the state of empty mind from any thoughts or emotions. Only when you transcend the limited perspective of the body and the mind,you have a complete dimension of life within you. When you become free from the modifications of your own mind will you know the dimension of the beyond.
