Yoga is realizing compassion in us...

Many people asked what is yoga? But they didn't want long explanation... Well, I definitely can understand why people don't like long explanation. People who live in the big city have to deal with everything that is so speedy and busy. People want quick answer and result. And time is very precious to many people because "TIME = MONEY". There is absolutely nothing wrong with this type of thinking...

Anyway, what is yoga in short?

Yoga is realizing compassion in us.

Yoga is realizing we are selfless and compassionate.

Just like the universal consciousness. Like the sun, the air, the water, the earth and the space...

We evolve slowly, patiently, ultimately we unite with our true nature, compassion...

Evolve from very selfish to reasonably selfish, to a little selfish, to unselfish, to selfless...

Selfishness creates fear in us. Selfishness is the nature of the ego.

When we identify with the ego, there will be a little or some selfishness in us and this hinders us from realizing the great compassion in us. Although we all have some sort of compassion in us (it's because we are compassionate in nature) to feel sympathy towards other beings who are less fortunate than us and those who are in painful sorrow and suffering. But due to the tiny or some selfishness still exist in us, our compassion cannot expand to the fullest which is completely without any discrimination, fear and worry. Selfishness obstructs us from embracing and love all without discrimination, without selfish intention and expectation, and without fear.

In the presence of compassion, there is no traces of fear. There is no discrimination of wise beings and ignorant beings... All are the same.

If we don't have wisdom, we couldn't understand what does "All are the same" really means? It's because we only see all and everything with the different qualities of different names and forms but we couldn't see the truth behind all these qualities, names and forms. When we have wisdom, we will know what does it means...

Form is not different from emptiness. Emptiness is not different from form.

Selflessness = compassion = fearlessness = peace = yoga

Be Happy.
