Very surprisingly we find in the upanishadic text a
prayer which lends a convincing proof for what is being
revealed here. The prayer is:
when translated, it reads like this:
Lead me from asat (negative, deathly existence) to sat
Lead me from tamas (darkness, ignorance) to joytir
Lead me from mrutyur (death) to amruta
1.The yoga saadhakaa makes this prayer while practising
yoga-vidyaa so that the satanic rule is destroyed and
the godly rule is established. This is called the kingdom of
God. God alone can grant immortality as against satan whose
only allowed goal is to bring about destruction.
Yoga\96vidyaa transcends all the barriers artificially
erected by mankind. It is biological and natural and has
nothing to do with any religion or nationality.
Asceticism is never the creed of the Aashrama. Family
life is advocated. Happiness, pleasure and contentment are
necessary for peaceful living, in fact, the practice of
yoga grants the above in great measure.
A happy and contented person can reach God and never by
others. A weepy and weak person is shunned by nature. A rebel,
a malcontented and an agitated person and who are having very
low spiritual content cannot ever hope to ascend in the scale
of reality. Such persons are a curse to society.
A balanced and rational food regimen is advocated for any
progress in the yoga-saadhanaa. Proper food , proper
recreation, proper sleep habits and proper activities
guarantee success, not otherwise.
6. Personal and family belief systems, rituals and such other
social practices are not inimical to the practice of yoga.
They can keep them so long as they find the need for them.
