Session description: Swami Jnaneshwara Bharati and Paramahansa Yoganandha have described precisely the word “Yoga” means “Union or Oneness” is derived from the English word Yoke which means engage oneself in a self-training programme and it also means union of one with God or Union of ego-self, very little, with the infinite spirit, namely. the Divine-self. Yoga in Sanskrit is “Yuj” which is directly related to the word “Samadhi”-transcendent realization of the highest truth.

  1. Hatha Yoga is different which deals with different postures whereas Yoga deals with spiritual discipline.
  2. It has also been stated that Yoga is certainly not a system of some beliefs. It brings mutual harmony between body and mind.
  3. A mind cannot concentrate owing to many factors, including tension illness, loss of energy and prevention of energy flowing to the brain, as a result of these the energy in the body gets weakened or paralyzed by destructive harmful emotions. Hence, the primary function of yoga is to deal with energy in the body through the science of pranayama, which means breadth-control.
