Happy International Yoga Day on 21 June 2015
From Prof.Dr.R.R.Deshpande – M - 9226810630
Yoga is not only Gymnastic ,nor it is one hour programme .Like Ayurveda ,Yoga is also Life style .We must try to live yoga life .
What is yoga Life style ?
Yogaha Samatvam Ucchate ! There is should be balance in each of our life activity like in eating, sleeping, working, laughing, talking .We should try to avoid extreme in any condition .In Marathi Aati tithe mati ( Any excess spoils the purpose) .Laziness is bad ,but workaholic is also bad .
Yogasu karma Kaushalam ! Yoga means developing skill in any of your work .Skillful activity saves your energy ,still gives you satisfaction
Yogastu Chitta vrutti Nirodhaha ! You must have control on your physical & mental activities .This means there you should not drain away with emotions or your activities .We must use our God gifted power of Intelligence for the same ,to decide what is correct & what is wrong ?
How then you can recognize that we have become yogi ,after following above said Yogic Life style ?
Sukha Dukhe Samet krutva ,Labha alabhav ,jaya ajaye ! – We ,as a yogi then can remain stable in any odds in our life .Whether we get lottery ticket or we are just earning our bread & butter ,Whether we win or we loose some times, whether we are honored or whether we are criticized
To become Yogi person or to follow yoga Life Style ,Step by Step guidelines are given by Patanjali Like Yam, Niyam, Asan, Pranayam, Pratyahar, Dharna, Dhyna & Samadhi
Yam & Niyam are practices for Ethical Code of Conduct & ways for Physical & Mental Hygiene .
Asanas are not like Gymnastic or only Gymnastic .Yea ! Physical postures can improve your physical Flexibility but at the same time ,we must practice to improve mental Flexibility ( By dissolving Ego.) .Asanas are for our stability.
According to Ayurveda Asanas are Koshtha Vyayam ( Exercises for Chest & abdominal organs). Bending forward & backward , we do contraction & relaxation of abdominal muscles .There is pumping like action. This action helps to improve blood supply & circulation to abdominal & chest organs .This improves Nutrition of these organs & elimination of wastes from this part
Pranayam or Breathing Yogic Exercises are Conservation of Energy Technique .God has given each of us ,specific amount of breaths for our whole life.It is like giving specific pocket money to a son by his father .So it is now son’s responsibility to utilize Pocket money skillfully .Similarly we must try to learn to utilize these breaths carefully & conserve our Life Energy .When we become angry or excited our Respiratory rate increases & we loose lot of Energy. But in calm & stable condition our respiration rate is low .In Pranayam we reduce our respirations per minute & also we make them deep i.re .more powerful.
Pratyhar is training to our senses, for not getting them carried away by our emotions .We should not become slave of our senses. Rather we should be master of our sensory & motor organs .For this our mind should remain always connected to our Intelligence or Inner conscious.
Dharana & Dhyana is Internal Journey towards Inner Conscious ,which is Divine purity inside. When our outer world is perfectly tuned with Internal world , melody of Joy is created .This is called as Sat Chit Anand ( Eternal Happiness ) .Then we can remain happy, without any reason. This is Samadhi stage of Yoga . Then we can remain Blissful & Joyful at any moment of our life .
Other than Ashtang Yoga , there are other ways to get same results .These yoga types are described as Karma Yoga ,Jnyana Yoga & Bhakti Yoga
I personally feel Karma yoga i.e Physically remain engaged in activity & keeping balance in it ,is good for Kapha dominant prakruti in Ayurved .Because Kapha people has to take care of their Inertia to maintain Health
Pitta dominant people should follow Bhakti Yoga ,where we have to keep faith & respect on divine things & surrender in front of them .This is necessary to dissolve Ego of Pitta people .
Mantra yoga is a part of Bhakti Yoga .Om mantra is a Divine Mantra .Why & How ? Om mantra ,really has 3 syllabi A,O & M .A sound vibrations are useful for proper Genesis of Cells .O Syllabus is for proper Operations ( Functions ) of cell .M sound vibrations makes in time Destruction of degraded cells.So A,O,M syllabi are responsible for Genesis + Operation + Destruction = GOD =Physiology of Body .
Vata dominant people may follow Jnyana Yoga .Jnyana yoga means Knowledge based activities .This can reduce unstability & confusion in Vata people
For to create awareness ,Yoga Day is Good .
But to to get benefit from yoga ,we must able to understand & digest Yoga Philosophy .Then we can live yoga life & will become Yoga person !!!
