Pain and Sorrow


Patanjali in his Yogasutra describes that people are afflicted with five kinds of pain. These are - ignorance(avidya), attachment(raga), contempt(dvesha) and fear of death(abhinivesh)(II.3).

Om Yoga Meditation: Why Yoga?


The following is an excerpt from the book "Om Yoga: Its Theory and Practice."

Yoga is Self Improvement


After five thousand years of written documentation, Yoga may well be the oldest self-improvement system that ever existed.

In the time period beyond 5,000 years a fair amount of knowledge would have been passed on by word of mouth, and as a result, some of it would be missing.

Religious leaders accept this meaning because their philosophy is based on dualism. They always try to project an external God and become Gog's representitives. By this they rule over their followers.
