YOGA: THE IDEAL WAY OF LIFE
- YOGA: THE IDEAL WAY OF LIFEYogacharya Dr Ananda Balayogi BhavananiYoga is a wholistic and integral science of life dealing with physical, mental,emotional and spiritual health of the individual and society. It is a way of life that provides a rare opportunity to leave the madness of world behind and attain inner peace. Yoga is the original mind body medicine and is one of the greatest treasures of the unique Indian cultural heritage. Yogic lifestyle, Yogic diet, Yogic attitudes and various Yogic practices help us strengthen ourselves and develop positive health. This Yogic “health insurance” is achieved by normalizing the perception of stress, optimizing the reaction to it and by releasing it effectively through various practices. We need to remember that Yoga is something that we “live” until our last breath, and even that last breath should be completed with awareness. Yoga is a continuous process as it is a journey and the goal is the journey itself. Yoga is not about the number of Yoga practices we do nor is it about how many times or how long we do them. It is all about how we live our life in tune with Dharma. This is more evident when we realise that Yoga enables us to adopt right attitudes towards our problems and thus tackle them in an effective manner. This article describes concepts of Yoga as a personal evolutionary journey and elucidates the role of Yoga in health, stress and inproducing positive health and well being. Relationship of Yoga with modern medicine and its application in social life as detailed and Yogic conceptsresponsible for developing essential qualities of a good human being are discussed.This article appeared in Yoga Mimamsa Vol. 44 ; No. 4 (Jan 2013). pg 314-325.--
