Yoga is a group of ancient spiritual practices from India. It was defined as referring to "ascetic and meditation technologies or disciplines that are believed to lead to a spiritual experience, a deep understanding, or the nature of existence". Yoga is closely linked to the religious beliefs and practices of many Indian religions.
Asketic exercises (tapas) are referred to the Brahmanas early (900 and 500 BCE) to the Vedas. The Upanishads are an early reference to meditation in Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, one of the earliest Upanishads (about 900 BC). The main textual source of Yoga's evolving concept is the central Upanishad (about 400 BCE), the Mahabharata (5th BCE), including Bhagavad Gita (about 200 BCE) and Patanjali Yoga Sutra (200 BC-300 CE).
Yoga is a 5,000-year-old science that teaches first not in a classroom or Gurukul but on the battlefield. In the epic Mahabharata, Lord Krsna first said that he had handed over the teachings of yoga for the roaring student Arjuna. About 1500 years later, another mercenary, Patanjali continued the path to the "summom bonum" for humanity and eternity. with the 1958 aphorism (sutras) associated with epic treatment of Patanjali yoga sutures.
Bhakti yoga is the most important. He mentions the spiritual practice of loving devotion to the bhakti God. Traditionally, nine forms of bhakti-yoga exist. Bhakti Yoga is usually the four most common ways of freedom or moksha (the others are Karma, Raja and Jnana yoga), and most of all in the current era of Kali yuga (according to the Hindu cycle).
