Yoga philosophy

Yoga is an ancient art that goes beyond the asanas' practice of posture. This is a philosophy that dates back to the period preceding the religions over 2000 years ago. This philosophy is about the union. It is about joining together and that it is a merger with a greater energy that brings us all together.

What is yoga?

Yoga is an ancient art designed to give the practitioner back to the true self. The ancient scriptures say that the true self is the state of salvation. This is the state of inner happiness. The Jewish "Yoga Sutra" – an ancient recorded text on yoga that encoded the old system – called the definition of yoga "Yoga chiti vriti nirodha". This translates from the original Sanskrit to English, which means that yoga is the halt of psyche fluctuations. Historically yoga – the raja yoga and hatha yoga – had two main paths – both of which ultimately seek to control the mind. The Asana practice – the practice of yoga posture – was created to stabilize us while sitting under meditation. Yoga has ultimately been created to reach meditation and thus a deeper state of consciousness.


Now the next question arises what is meditation or dhyana in Sanskrit? Meditation is the immobility of the mind by acknowledging the body

Pranayama – the yoga breathing techniques – is designed to still breathe and thus is still the mind.

Yoga's meditation practice helps us overcome the ego. The ego is individuality. But in reality we are all connected and recognize yoga with this relationship. The definition of yoga is the union. In exercising yoga, you recognize the unity of yours who you think you are, your individual consciousness, and the person you are actually in – this is part of the supreme consciousness. In order to transcend individual consciousness and supreme consciousness, we must overcome the ego. And in order to defeat the ego, we need what the Upanishad texts describe as Vivek Chudamani. This jewel of the crown is the force of distinction as it is real and what is not. It must therefore be able to see that it really does not exist, but that we are all in touch with each other.

We need to find out what it means to return to our true self – or what is self-realization. Self-realization identifies itself essentially as peace and happiness. If this true authentication is done, it only radiates peace and happiness.


Yoga is one of the ways of chakras (inside energy points). Now yoga is aimed at the ultimate functioning of the chakras within us. This replaces individual consciousness with the highest consciousness. The Vedas

Now the Vedas – the scriptures that speak about knowledge – say that there are three flaws in the mind. They are small, which is contamination, waste, excessive thoughts and emotions. Then there is the buggy, which is instability, and then there is a lot of cover. The presence of avaran means that it is very difficult to perceive the truth.

India's ancient philosophy was named Sanathana Dharma, which could mean eternal law. He saw everything in the universe that he was intertwined as a spiritual unity-that is, man, animals, nature, the whole universe. In Vedic times – at the time of the Vedas – the world was called Vasudevakudambakam, a world family. When we regard the world as a family, we experience a true spirit. The world at that time can be considered as the differences caused by race, country or religion. Spirituality in the unity of unity in all things.

Yoga Trails

From this knowledge, it is important to understand that yoga has several different paths, each of which leads us to self-actualization or inner happiness.

Karma yoga is the action of yoga. It's about getting rid of it. There are two different types of action or karma. Sakam includes finding the fruits of the action while the nishkam is cleaner. It involves not looking for the fruits of the individual's actions, but thinking through a pure heart and clear thinking, thinking without thinking. The life span of the nishkam karma results in a happier, more balanced and peaceful life.

Bhakti yoga is devotion to yoga. There is conditional devotion, but unconditional devotion is needed to eliminate vikshep or instability.

Gyana yoga is a knowledge of yoga. It exists to remove the avarane or cover. Gyana Yoga speaks a lot about the nature of consciousness. Now the nature of consciousness can be described as "sat chit anand". "Sat" is existence or truth. They are all immortal in the sense that we are all souls, and the soul itself is immortal. This is our real nature. We are all looking for our true immortal self – our soul. That is why we try to live longer lives-we try to connect with our true self-immortal soul. Chit is wisdom – so we all seek wisdom, look for the wisdom that is in everyone. "Anand" happiness. Happiness is what we all are looking for, and in the deepest core of our creatures, we are all happiness or happiness. By planting, we all seek self-actualization or inner happiness through knowledge.

Raja yoga is the royal road. As the king puts law and order in his kingdom, the raja yoga practitioner reigns within the kingdom – in the kingdom of the senses and not under the guidance of the senses, but in the yogi peace and under the guidance of his senses. The Jewish law and decree.


After the Vedic period of Indian philosophy, the Vedanta era began. Vedanta means the end of the Vedas – the time when knowledge ceases and self-actualization begins

Within the Vedanti tradition of philosophy, we read that there are five layers of consciousness that prevent us from identifying who we are. We all really get into the five layers, we think we're the 5 layer. These layers are known in Vedanta as the "basket basket". The word "concrete" is five, and "kosha" means our awareness of envelopes or envelopes. By the practice of yoga, we are moving towards the innermost layer.

The first layer is called the food body or the physical body. This is known as the annamaya kosha. This physical body consists of consumed nutrients – protein, minerals and so on. We often identify ourselves with the physical body and do not look too far. Even when we look at the physical body, it is important to understand that the nutrition we eat consists of our body and brain. Therefore, we are healthy and therefore happy physical and mental health by eating healthy and exercising.

The second layer is known as pranamaya kosha, and it is energy or ethereal body. Prana can be called breath, oxygen or vital energy, and it is related to the chi of Chinese philosophy. Oxygen is needed for every cell of our body. Trees and plants emit oxygen, so we feel ourselves surrounded by nature and nature.

The third layer is manomaya kha or mental body. From this understanding we know that the mind and body are related to each other. That is why we are physically healthy if we have a positive view. Laughter and happiness always create good health.

The fourth layer is the gyanamaya kosha or the intuitive body. Here is our sixth sense. Answers to the questions are in reality in the fourth layer

And in the fifth layer consciousness is our ultimate goal, like yogi – that is the body of happiness – or anandmaya kosha. We experience this when we have fully experienced the ego and are aware of who we are and what we all associate. Yoga is a journey that leads from annamaya kosha to anandmaya kosha. When we reach the anandmaya bin, we live in the happy body.

It can be said that meditation is a practice that allows us to go beyond the mind and perceive deeper levels to see who we really are. Within the yoga exercises the asanas work on the food body, pranayama works on the energy body and dhyana, or meditation on the mental body. Therefore, the three practices of yoga continue to push to the deepest basket. Turiya

"turiya" is a person who has crossed the five dough. The state of Turiya is the transcendental self. It does not matter – I do not like it or not. Balanced. When we reach this state – when we are in the body of happiness – we overcome both pleasure and pain. We practice yoga in order to move away from body, mind and breath, and simply move on to the inner person.


Patanjali raja yoga speaks of the mind's control and thus the breath and thus the body. It has eight limbs – the asthanga. The word is eight, and the word anga means extremes. The first steps of asthanga are yama and niyama. Yama's social rules and rules and niyama's personal rules and rules. Only these two limbs are enough to make self-actualization. Yoga's other ways also seek self-realization. The following are discussed: yama: ahimsa (no violence), satya (truth and honesty, asteya (not theft), bramacharya (operative to the highest consciousness – leading to equilibrium) and aparigraha (no accumulation or feeling)

Niyama includes sauch (purity, including mental purity), santosh (satisfaction), habit (restraint or self-discipline), swadhyaya (self learning) and Ishwar parnidhan (the Supreme Believe

Yoga's eight limbs, asthanga, : yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharna, dhan and samadhi Dharna is a mountain where one is so concentrating on the subject of concentration that all other thoughts disappear

Pratyahara retreat from the senses, asanas and pranayama continuous Practice to pratyahara, All techniques of meditation pratyahara

Samadhi is the unity with the universe. he went through the hammam and came to Samadhiba, the "I" consciousness disappears. He is merely the center of meditation and ultimately the universe. In Samadhi, the ego disappears and it is recognizable that we are all connected to each other.

In Samadhi, there is the savikalpa samadhi, where the "I" core is left, and there is nirvikalpa samadhi, where there are no seeds. In yoga, the goal is to move to nirvikalpa samadhi.


According to Patanjali, the ultimate goal of yoga is to kewalya where there is no return from samadhi. This is the state of unity of the universe in which you have no sense of self, there is no sense of "me", there is no ego and you are unaware of their return. It is only a state in which we realize that we are all in touch and that is the state of happiness because we have overcome all the joys and pains that attach to the material world. Here we relate to the Supreme Self and experience the natural state of happiness. This is where yoga has been implemented with yoga.

Yoga goes beyond the mere practice of asanas, meditation and pranayama, and actually brings us closer to our original self-fulfillment.


Yoga teaches us to deeper into ourselves and in this deeper consciousness there is a great sense of shanti or peace that we can all attract. Ultimately, as a good yoga student, this is the peace of mind that we are all looking for.
