Philosophy and Comments
Yoga means union with God, or, union of the little, ego-self with the divine Self, the infinite Spirit. Yoga is a spiritual discipline.
Hatha Yoga is the physical branch of Raja Yoga, the true science of yoga. Raja Yoga is a system of techniques that help to harmonize human consciousness with the divine consciousness.
Hatha Yoga works primarily with the energy in the body, through the science of pranayama, or energy-control. Prana means also ‘breath.’ Yoga teaches how, through breath-control, to still the mind and attain higher states of awareness.
The teachings of Ashtanga yoga take one beyond techniques, and show the yogi, or yoga practitioner, how to direct his concentration in such a way as not only to harmonize human with divine consciousness, but to merge his consciousness in the Infinite. This joy is ever-new and indestructible.
