The word yoga means connection, a concept quite detached from the modern values attached to the activity. So when we talk about a system of yoga, though it contains various tools and physical practises, the main goal of which is the highest connection; with ourselves, others and God. Or we may list them in the reverse order.
By connecting our energy and hearts first with the Supreme Source of energy and love, we automatically connect with the smaller spiritual portions of such a Universal Presence.
There are many conceptions of the Higher, many names ascribed and many methods with which to strive in that penultimate direction. Bhakti yoga, the most simple and sublime system for this modern age, is non-sectarian and accessible for everyone to realise Truth and attain Happiness.
Why not hear more? This Wednesday at 6.30pm in Atma.
