What do we truly mean by Yoga?
In the Bhagavad Geeta, the word ʻyogaʼ has been forever tamed and domesticated to be with all of us, serving us faithfully at all times in our life. To the Eastern sages, inspired living is the real godly destiny of man, when he lives in perfect unison with the Self within.
A balanced life – wherein we live as unaffected witness of even our own mind and intellect – is the realm of self-forgetfulness, where instead of becoming inefficient, our profession gathers a scintillating glow of a new dawn. This extra aura in any achievement is that which raises an ordinary success to an inspired achievement.
The yogis of the ancient Hindu lore discovered a technique whereby the mind and the intellect could be consciously brought to a steadiness and poise. This technique is called ʻyogaʼ. The Hindus of the Vaidika period knew, practiced and lived it.
