There’s a lot more to yoga which we’ve come to know and love as a great exercise for stretching and toning the body. Yoga builds flexibility and strength in heart and mind, the way they express themselves as physiology. In India–for millennia–yoga has been virtually synonymous with meditation. The word “yoga” can refer to a state of enlightenment, the means of attaining that ultimate state of human potential, and the body of knowledge which elaborates on philosophical foundations of these: Yoga Shastra, Yoga Sutra, and the Bhagavad Gita. Let’s explore what they tell us about the secret, transcendental side of yoga, what it is, what it can do for us.
Anne Melfi, Ph.D. writes about the Vedic rhetorical paradigm of India. She has taught Transcendental Meditation for twenty-five years.
