What Is Yoga

Yogha is a away of life, an integrated system of education for the body, mind, and inner spirit. This art of right living was perfected and practised in India thousands of years ago but, since Yoga deals with universal truths, it's teachings are as valid today as they were in ancient times. Yoga is a practical aid, not a religion, and it's techniques may be practised by Buddhists, Jews, Christains, Muslims, Hindus, and atheists alike. Yoga is union with all.

The Synthesis Of Yoga

Over the centuries, four different paths of Yoga (Karma, Jnana, Bhakti, and Raja) have developed. They are often likened to four branches of a banyan, or peeple, tree, which puts down roots from it's branches and appears to be growing down to Earth from Heaven.

Since we each have our own personality, we may prefer one path to another, but a one-sided development is not recommended, as it can lead to an imbalance in the personality. The whole person - heart, intellect, and hand - should be developed simultaneousely, so a synthesis of the four main paths is recommended. It is best to have one basic sadhana (spiritual practice) or preferred path, but to draw from the techniques of the others as well.

KARMA YOGA

Karma Yoga is selfless service, the path by which the mind is most quickly purified and its limits transcended. The Karma Yogi works hard, both physically and mentally. He seeks to eliminate the ego and its attachments, to serve humanity without expecting reward, and to see unity in diversity. This enables him to tune to the one underlying divine essence that dwells within all beings. Karma Yoga is most suitable for people who have an active temperament. It involves working in the world and giving of oneself, but working on a spiritual level.

Jnana Yoga

This philosophical or intellectual approach to spiritual evolution describes the world as an illusion. Using the two powerful intellectual techniques of Viveka (discrimination) and Vairagya (dispassion), the veils of illusion, or Maya, are lifted. Jnana Yoga is usually regarded as the most difficult of the four paths of Yoga. This path demands a sharp mind and an unclouded intellect.

Bhakti Yoga

Bhakti Yoga tends to appeal to people who are emotional by nature. Since the emotions cannot be endlessly repressed, Bhakti Yoga teaches techniques for their sublimation. Thourgh various practices, such as chanting, prayer, and the repetition of mantra (sacred formulae), emotional energy is channelled into devotion, turning anger, hatred, and jealousy in a positive direction. Emotional love is changed into pure divine love. The Bhakta tries to see God in all.

Raja Yoga

We each possess vast mental and psychic resources that lie virtually untapped below the surface of the conscious mind. To release this latent potential, Raja Yoga prescribes a psychological approach, based on a practical system of concentration and control of the mind. Right conduct, a healthy body and steady posture, breath regulation, and withdrawal of the senses are recommended to achieve this. Only if this foundation is firm can the superstructure of concentration and meditation succeed. Hatha Yoga is a form of Raja Yoga that emphasizes asanas and pranayama. Without Yamas, Niyamas, and the other steps (see below), it is not "Yoga".
