Introduction

If you have reached the conclusion that Yoga is perfect for you at this point in your life, you probably know that there is the existence of God. The important thing is for people to first get started; it really is not important what style you do but that you simply practice the yoga.

“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.

Yoga unites the body, mind and the soul. It is a system of healthy, happy and peaceful living. Yoga practices also increase the life span of a human being. It makes us more familiar with our entire body. Yoga practice has its roots in the ancient healing methods where simplicity was the answer to most dreadful and serious ailments. It is the road to express the beauty, nobility and true divinity of human spirit.

Perfections in the Asanas does not come in a day;1t requires years of strenuous efforts, therefore one should not give up one’s yoga practices even if initially one does not experience much success. The yoga practices should be continued with renewed and with much vigor. Just a little practice of yoga will bestows upon the student a great deal of inner strength. While practicing the yoga Asanas, the mind should not think of the daily routine or of the engagements or any other external object. One must withdraw the mind from all such thoughts. As suggested by adepts while doing the äsanas, one should concentrate the mind on the relevant parts of the body according to the nature of the Asanas practiced.

The difference between Yoga and other forms of exercises is that exercises is more superficial for example building muscles etc. of the body where as yoga provides a comprehensive system of exercise that strengthens, stretches and helps to align and improve the health of the entire body. In Yogic practices there is harmonious development of all the muscles of the body, internal organs, nerves and the frame. In yoga practices there are no rapid movements, hence there is no waste of energy. In yoga exercises movements are gentle and rhythmic. Some yoga äsanas involve forward and backward motions others help the movements of the spine while as others help clean lungs, throat etc. Thereby the body as a whole is develop and becomes flexible. Regularity is the most important - factor to derive the full benefits of Yogasanas.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
