Yoga is a profound part of the Vedic culture. Yoga practices underlie at the heart of all Hinduism (Sanskrit "Sanatan Dharma") schools. Sanatana Dharma means "the eternal law" - the law of all beings’ evolution.
Advaita is an ancient doctrine that tells us about human nature as divine initially. "Advaita" can be translated as "not two". Soul is not separated from God. God is a reality that permeates everything.
The ancient teaching of "yoga" which is practiced in the center for Vedic culture Divya Loka, in the minds of many people is still associated only with India, headstand pose, lotus posture, sitting on a bed of nails, sunken belly, and matted hair of a yogi. Few people understand the true meaning of yoga which is far from exotic gymnastics, giving the ability to surprise others with peculiar poses.
The word "yoga" means "reunion". With what reunites a yogi? Paradoxically, but a a true yogi reunites with himself. This paradox is explained in the deep philosophy of yoga.
According to the ancient scripts, which they study in Divya Loka, each of us has not only a physical body, but also a subtle one. Our consciousness is not only a conceptual mind, solving everyday problems, but it also includes the subconsciousness, well known to psychologists as Super-consciousness. It contains the underlying causes of the events in the fate of each of us, our motives, and the main character traits.
The yogis believe in rebirth of the soul. Through countless rebirths a personality gains experience of many emotions and experiences, and meet numberless desires, embodying in many different forms and bodies and having a great variety of the fate lines.
All these eventually lead to satiety, and fatigue from the pursuit of fleeting pleasures. The soul comes to the conclusion that no matter how many countless desires and ways to meet them it has, hoping to find happiness; the personality keeps on desiring more and more. It has no end.
Disappointed in mortal existence, the consciousness turns into seeking for something reliable and eternal; it gradually discovers that behind all existence there is some basis. It is the root of everything: all the joys and sorrows. It is the source of a constant bliss. Life is a tiny piece of the First principle, the source and the heart of every life. It is the deep part of life and consciousness, which lies at the Super consciousness and the causal body. The Sacred Writings of different spiritual traditions, kept in the library of Divya Loka, call it Absolute, Supreme Spirit, God, Allah, Clear Light, Primordial wisdom, Supreme Good, the source of everything, Nirvana, Prajnyana...
It is that very deep part of himself with which the yogi wants to reunite. Numerous methods of yoga, practiced in Divya Loka, lead to the clarification of the sources. These methods include also so popular now Hatha yoga, which consists of various body postures (asanas).
Standing on one’s head, sitting in lotus posture (Padmasana), and so on is not an end in itself. They purify the physical and energetic body. Due to them, the hidden divinity in us – the lifeblood, joy, happiness, and success, – it becomes more accessible. It endows one who directs towards it with natural fulfillment of all their desires. This is confirmed by both sacred writings and spiritual practitioners, who have managed more or less to touch the Supreme Good.
It turns out that the spiritual man in any tradition or religion is a real yogi, in the highest sense of the word. Method of knowing God is a method of yoga. From a sincere cordial prayer to the complex rituals, from a mere fast to the self-liberation practices, which are used in Divya Loka. They are all yoga techniques, the methods of reunion with the divine principle of all beings. Their variety is determined by a variety of spiritual traditions and schools, religions and creeds.
Anyone who aspires to the Eternal, Sacred, Pure, and Chaste is a yogi. This is how exactly our deep part of the soul, the divine principle is described in the texts of yoga.
Vedic culture is based on the Universe laws of evolution described in the scriptures of Hinduism "Vedas". They guide a human life, leading to harmony, happiness and creative prosperity.
