Importance of Yoga
“Inhale peace, exhale stress,take a deep breath, relax your body”. Yes ! It is is the most talked about subject ‘YOG(A)’. Many people wonder how this slow and lazy looking exercise is relevant in today’s fast and furious life. Is it a mere hyped status symbol for wealthy or Rich?. If not, what are the benefits of Yoga and Meditation?
The word YOG(A) has been derived from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘UNION’, the union of soul with the superior being. According to The Geeta, YOG(A) has been defined as “YogahKarmasu kushlam” which means YOG(A) is excellence at work. According the theory of Karma when one does one’s work with devotion and dedication it becomes YOG(A). It is basically a way of salvation. Physical exercise, breathing and meditation are only a few steps towards the ultimate goal.
