The true meaning of Yoga
Human life is the greatest privilege of this creation: God in the form of seed has filled in it all the possibilities which are in him himself. On this basis, the nature of human life has been called the form of happiness, which on attaining its development becomes like God. Realization and awakening of this spiritual form of existence is the important goal of this life. On this basis, he spoke of the descent of heaven on earth. Spiritual awakening can take place based on prayer or based on the divine, which teaches that we can reach the heights of heights. It is determined by the sanskars rooted in the mind, which define life and behaviour in the form of chittvrittis every moment.
Without transforming them, it is not possible to say when life will come to a state of failure, that is why life-cultivation is an important work, through which the work of sophistication of the mind is proved, any kind of negligence in it can prove fatal and therefore One has to be constantly engaged in this. The experiences of life are accumulated in the mind in the form of samskaras, which give their identity in the form of vrittis. They are known only when they are manifest in the form of actions, otherwise, they remain so deeply buried in the subconscious that they are not even realized.
It is something like when the bubble in a pond rises from the bottom, it is not visible from the outside, even when it reaches near the surface, it cannot be seen. We could have prevented it from becoming a wave if we had known its in origin. In the same way, negation is possible by transforming them into seed forms of sanskars in the mind. Psychology considers their nature to exist in the unconscious, although its understanding of its transformation is not clear; Whereas Indian spiritual science has taken deep insights into them and there is a clear path for their transformation.
According to this, the mind is like a lake, from which the waves keep on rising. As the eyes are the catalyst for seeing the outer scene, which takes the scene to the mind. With these a wave arises in the mind, which may be in the form of a thought, feeling or desire. When this wave emerges from the brain, it is called thought. When it emerges from the heart, it is called bhava and when it arises equally from both the mind and the heart, it is called desire, which is fulfilled in the form of action. When the soul sees itself associating with these waves, then it determines its form accordingly. Some of these waves originate from the higher plane of the mind, while some of the waves emerging from the lower planes create distress. According to Maharishi Patanjali, when the Atmantattva sees himself associating himself with the non-atman elements, he is in a way residing in the heaven of illusion by building a palace in the air, due to which the soul is in the world of ego, attachment-aversion, object Indulges.
No matter how beautiful it looks from the outside, it is far from its true form. It is the root cause of the incompleteness and unhappiness of life, which needs to be rectified. For this, we have to change our attitude. Modern psychologists talk about sublimation to give a higher level of direction to the attitudes and habits of the mind and see it as the socialization of the individual, based on which Western psychologists consider the refinement of the mind possible only to a certain extent. Indian thought has a specific philosophy regarding this. According to this, every person consciously and unconsciously lives in search of happiness man is a mixture of good and evil. Surprisingly, along with the good, there are also terrible evils in it. We may have selfishness, but there is also a sense of sacrifice.
One part may be filled with anger and arrogance, but there may also be kindness and compassion. On the one hand, we can be slaves of desires, on the other hand, we also have the power of extraordinary control. By keeping the right attitude towards both ends of life, we can destroy friendship and bad tendencies with good tendencies. As our emotions become refined, our minds will be purified and we will move towards self-realization.
On the one hand, for this, Maharishi Patanjali suggests a systematic path of Ashtanga Yoga, under which the path of Sadhana starts with Yama-Niyama and proceeds with Asana-Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana. Is.
This is how spiritual discipline with moral virtues is practised. By keeping the mind focused on the spiritual goal, it is prevented from vain contemplation and wandering here and there and the mind is kept constantly engaged in fulfilling the basic purpose of this rare life.
Simultaneously, a method is used to refine and control the seeds of lust rooted in the mind, which is a powerful method of meditation. Meditation can be said to be the key to spiritual transformation, based on which the subtle desires that have taken root in the mind are purged and the seeker attains the ideal state of self-knowledge and self-realization of spiritual life.
However, this is possible only when the mind has been calmed and stabilized to a certain level based on moral discipline and prayer. After delving into the depths of meditation, we become acquainted with those subtle blockages of the mind which remain trapped in the mind even after the maturation of bodily deeds and sanskars. We scrape them off carefully. Gradually, we develop the capacity for introspection, which can discover and refine the desires, desires, etc. of the mind at the subtle level.
In this way, the sadhak, with practice, detaches himself from the foreign feelings and attitudes with which he is attached and controls them by coming into the visual sense. With meditation, that inner light is awakened, which burns the desires and desires. With this gradually the soul is illuminated with its eternal glory and one enters the kingdom of lasting happiness, peace and bliss.
