“In life there will be always many paths to follow; I hope you always choose the right one..: if you give a part of yourself to life, the part you receive back will be so much greater. Never regret the past, but learn by it. Never loose sight of your dreams; a person who can dream will always have hope. Believe in yourself; if you do, everyone else will, you have the ability to accomplish anything, but never do it at someone else’s expense. If you can go through life loving others, you will have achieved the greatest success of all.
The word Yoga is a Sanskrit word which means to 1-Harmonize or Unite.” The science of Yoga is vast and has teen divided into different branches which are based on the experiences and observations. In the ancient times the Rsis and Seers of truth with their keen observations discovered finer forces of nature and also uncovered the finer forces that govern our physical, mental and spiritual being.
Methods by which these Scientific Truths were applied in daily life of an individual to further his spiritual development were called by the Yoga; methods of realizing the truth and attaining the highest wisdom. Yogi is one who through various practices reaches the highest ideal of spiritua1 life. Spirituality does not depend on book know1edge, nor on the intellectual understanding but on the spiritual practices of yoga.
