What Is Classical Hatha Yoga?
When we talk about Yoga anywhere in the world people have different definitions for Yoga as per their own understanding about the Yoga or as per the knowledge they have received from their teachers. Many of them seems very nice as per the meaning of the it but as per classical scripture Yoga means union. Word Yog has come from the Sanskrit route world “Yuj” which stands for unite. So, in brief we can say that the primary meaning of the Yoga is UNION. Now the question rises that union with what? So many people explain that to unite yourself with the God is Yoga or in other worlds union between the lower and supreme power is Yoga. Some of them say that unite with the happiness is Yoga. When we get these definitions we accept it just by words but from inside we never adopt it because none of us has ever seen the God so how can we unite ourselves with the unseen power. Yogi Ajay Rana explain very nicely that in this world of internet we are united with each other by Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Instagram, Pintrest or other social networking websites but the reality is that we are disconnected from our own self. In other worlds we can say that in this field of technology we have become more extrovert. Connecting with yourself is Yoga. When you become Introvert you do the progress on the path of Yoga. He says that forget God and unite with yourself. Scripture says that God has created us in his own form so when we know our own self we understand everyone & we realize the God as well. But maximum of us think that we are this body, we are this mind, we are these senses but reality is far more away from it. We are none of this we are the bliss absolute. To realize that self is the aim of Yoga.
