Yoga is in our life every moment. In fact it is life itself.
Life is not outside us. It is the mind within us. Without the mind, life does not exist. Existence of life comes from the mind.
Yoga is not just within the two hours session that we are attending for Yoga Asana practice.
It is how we feel and deal with our feelings and emotions every moment in everyday’s life.
Be in the present moment, letting go of the past and letting go of the expectations for the future, constantly self healing and becoming self independent.
Be the master of the body and mind, be the conqueror of our own life, develop openness of the heart and purify the mind constantly.
Learn to feel good and be happy disregard the condition of the physical body and outer situations, free from impurities, detached from duality, and having calmness and peacefulness in the heart is Yoga.
To be in peace is not necessary has to be secluded from other living beings, run away from the world, or changing the law of nature. The hard condition that we are facing every moment is where we can practice letting go, purify ourselves and unfold the wisdom in us.
Wisdom is always there, unchanging and ever existing. It is currently being clouded by impurities (ignorance). Once we purified our mind, ignorance will be gone and wisdom is seen clearly. We will see the world differently because our perception has changed.
When there is wisdom, there will be no fear at all.
Learn to live meaningfully, in harmony with the world, and learn to live in happiness along with all the frustrations and obstacles in life.
Knowing our true self and accepting ourselves as we are from moment to moment by understanding the law of nature and respecting the ever-changing phenomena.
The fundamental practice of Yoga is the cultivation of morality (self control) and purification of the body and mind (Yama and Niyama), where mind is the essence for self transformation.
We are living in a routine of getting up everyday, go to school or work place, study or play, feeling happy or sad, laugh and cry, eat and drink, going to the toilet, seeing, hearing, talking, having fears and worries most of the time, having some dreams and desires to achieve, and go to sleep at the end of the day, until the moment our body dies and life comes to an end.
Although these routines looked like small little things or seemed like normal in life, these are the places where we learn about our true self, who we really are, and to transcend the suffering due to the existence of life.
But this is not the end of existence because our consciousness continues to exist after the death of this physical body. And we have to take another life form to enjoy or payback the fruit of our karma that we had created through out our lifetime.
All these are the practice of Yoga.
