keeping yoga as yoga
Happiness is the nature of all beings. The human heart will not rest until it understands who and what it is. All actions are limited and offer only a temporary fix of experiential contentment. A limited action cannot produce an unlimited result. This includes the experience of yoga.
Liberation is obtained through knowledge (self understanding) and not through experience. Though millions of actions will not produce the ultimate quest of all beings, which is lasting happiness, appropriate action can however purify and prepare the mind for self inquiry- which in return leads one to freedom.
This is where Yoga comes in. Yoga is a number of practices, a very sensible lifestyle really, that produces a clear abiding mind, one that is capable of making a sustained and careful investigation into the nature of reality. Yoga is the practice of appropriate action which can act as a beautiful platform to qualify the mind to attain self understanding. To re-discover your true essence as limitless-everpresent-non-dual-actionless-ordinary-unchanging-awareness is liberation. This self knowledge is obtained through the science of self inquiry (jnana yoga).
plaYoga is devoted to keeping yoga as yoga. Traveling around the globe drinking good coffee & sharing clean yoga is pretty nice. Apart from classes, online communication is extended. You are most welcome to write & connect relating to questions on self-inquiry & the methodology of vedanta.
Through the science of self inquiry you can tread lighter & settle back into your "good-just-as-you-are-ness". The methodology of vedanta dissolves the illusion of limitation and division.
