World Yoga Day

Tiffany Brar
Posted June 21, 2019 from India

Yoga is one of the most prominent age old arts practiced in our country India.

 Yoga is the Ancient Indian Science of Self-Realization (Mokshadharma  saastra). The tradition considers Hiranyagarbha as the originator of Yoga. Yoga is one of the six orthodox Indian Philosophical Schools (Aastika darsanas). It is founded by Sage Patanjali. The aim of yoga is to redeem man from the suffering and cycle of birth and death. It is a practical philosophy. The ancient sages, seers and philosophers adopted yoga as a way of life and all over the world. It originated in India and spread to many countries.

 People from far and wide practice this unique art which provides relaxation to the body as well as the mind.

On this Yoga day, I would like to Pay tribute to all sages and philosophers of my country, for having originated this unique aspect of life, which has provided peace of mind to many across the globe, and which has released so many troubled souls from terrible situations, and which has also proved to be a mode of physical fitness and flexibility.

At our organization Jyothirgamaya Foundation, we practice it among our students and it has indeed been helpful in their all round development. It is also disabled friendly and can be done by people in accordance to their disability, which further draws me towards it.

 It feels good to wake up in the morning to slow meditative music, and Yoga, and to practice it whenever possible in complete silence. Once after emerging from a session of Yoga or meditation, one feels lighter and it helps.

 We have however misinterpreted this concept as a religious one, but it can be practiced by people of all faiths in their own way, without hindering their beliefs.

Hello Dear Tiffany,

Thanks for sharing this informative article. I didn't know that was the aim of yoga. I do some yoga stretches every morning to start my day and sometimes do different ones for part of my exercise regime, too.

I hope you're doing well, and having a great weekend:-)
