Introduction To Yoga
Back in those days, people used to refer ‘yoga’ to be a spiritual process and unknowingly used to judge others for transforming themselves into a yogi or following the path that would nevertheless have any positive influence. Things have drastically changed in the present context and yoga has become a ‘day-to-day and a ‘door-to-door’ trendsetter.
Yoga has been referred to be a Sanskrit word which includes the involvement of not only physical but mental and spiritual practices. Yoga is derived from Sanskrit and is connected with the term ‘yoke’ in English. Yoga is said to have been originated from the ancient Indian philosophies. Its origins have been dated to the pre-Vedic Indian traditions and have been quoted in Rigveda. Many sculptures state that Yoga in Nepal is ancient. The development then began in the sixth and fifth centuries in ancient India. The order of yoga is not much clear and has been said to be found in the Upanishads. Patanjali which has now become a popular brand consisted of various sutras in the form of yoga and some believe it is the actual foundation of yoga which started in the first half of the first millennium. Its popularity began in the 20th century. Yoga did not cover much in itself in the past but these days it has transformed into a new dimension not only in the east but the west as well. It was Swami Bibekananda who is believed to have introduced the foundation of yoga in the west but his preaching did not include the asanas. Various forms of yoga that are practiced by Hindus, Buddhists and Jains, and even the Christians.
Based on the Hindu tradition, the practices of yoga cover Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, Laya Yoga and also Hatha Yoga. The classical form of yoga also known as Astanga (Yoga of eight limbs) or Raja Yoga has been highlighted from the famous Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Though in an unclear form, the classical yoga is said to have appeared from the Upanishads. Ashtanga yoga was later proposed by Vivekananda and it was previously named as ‘Raja yoga’. The main aim of ‘Raja Yoga’ was to go to the state of Samadhi and for that the practice of eight limbs is essential. The ‘eight-limbed’ includes Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, pratyahara, Dharana, dhyana and Samadhi.
Buddhist yoga, on the other hand, included various methods and the ultimate goal is Bodhi which relates to awakening or abandonment which could be the end of suffering and rebirth. Jain yoga includes the following of nonviolence, almsgiving (Dana), austerity (tapa) meaning fasting and other yogic practices. The other form of yoga is also known as tantric yoga, which according to Samuel included practices using geometrical drawings or display in the form of a mandala. Hatha yoga focuses on the physical and mental stability using various postures of the body. Laya yoga and Kundalini yoga are said to be somewhat mutually connected yoga techniques. Laya yoga includes listening to the sound and practicing various forms of mudras. Kundalini yoga, on the other hand, uses various breathing techniques and postures make the energy rise. Besides, Christians are seen to merge yoga with different aspects of Easter spirituality combining it with both meditation and prayers.
