Recommended Posts

There has been long talk of yoga in west, most of times many westerns have little clue of true meaning of yoga.

Here is the hilarious video of yoga. Absolutely epic..!!!

Anyway, here is the real true essence meaning of yoga in three words:

Yoga Chit Vrithi Nirodha - Yoga Sutra -Patanjali

yogaḥ = (nom. sg. m. from yoga) yoga

citta = (iic.) all that is mutable in human beings; thoughts

vṛtti = (iic.) thought-wave; mental modification; mental whirlpool; a ripple in the chitta. A vritti alters perception like a misconception, or as waves on the surface of a pond obscure or distort our view of the bottom.

nirodhaḥ = (nom. sg. m. from nirodha) to find tranquility; to control/Ceasation of chita vrithi(thoughts/mental thought waves) leaving one in yoga- absolute union
