The pathway to peace
The art of movement
The Vedic system considers the confluence of body, mind and soul as the tripod of existence. While the body and mind can fall under the domains of health and disease, the soul or the all-energetic and eternal Aatman is beyond any flaw. The sister sciences of Ayurveda and Yoga attend to the healing of the sick body and mind and propel the purpose of life beyond just biological existence towards the ultimate self realization which marks the union of the Jiva with the Paramatman.
Yoga achieves the purpose through a very well organized eight-fold sequential process known as the Ashtaanga Maarga consisting of Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyaahara, Dhaarana, Dhyaana and Samaadhi. These yogic processes gradually take us from the simplest to the most complex and finally onto the ultimate destination of self-realization.
