Yoga is the ancient wisdom with scientific validation for
overall development. It affects not only the conscious self but
subconscious self as well. By meaning Yoga is to unite. It
represents the union between Jeevatma (soul) and Parmatma (super
soul), Shiva and Shakti, Prakrit and Purush, Sun and Moon, Ha
and Tha, Eda and Pingala, exhalation and inhalation, blood and
semen thus balancing everything existed in this universe.
The mentioned union is possible through the control of whirls of
mind (Chitta Vritti Nirodh). Control of whirls of mind makes a
person balance (samatva) in every situation whether pleasure and
sorrow, success and failure. That brings perfection in action as
mentioned by lord Krishna in Bhagvat Gita. Practice of yoga is
exercise for moral and mental cultivation that generates good
health (arogya), contributes to longevity (chirayu) and total
intrinsic discipline culminates into positive and perennial
happiness and peace.
