Yoga is practiced
both by mystics and ascetics alike. Yoga (termed meditation in English)
is derived from the root word Yog which in Hindi stands for assimilation,
the effort to unite! In Hindi two Yog two equals four.
The effort of
our soul atman... the spirit within to combine with the larger whole
(God Almighty himself) is termed yoga meditation. For travelers
of the spiritual path yoga meditation is a necessity.
of the spiritual path and ascetics... spiritual seekers in search
for God... both need yoga meditation to reach the end goal of their
life. In absence of yoga meditation... enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)
and finally salvation (moksha) cannot be gained.
seeker of spirituality needs traveling the path of yoga meditation.
Yoga meditation is not a necessity on the religious path! For reaching
God religion is not necessitated... while spirituality is!
Yoga is best
practiced in the Shavasana pose of yoga! Lying on a cot Maharishi
Ramana while practicing Neti (not this, not this) in the Shavasana
pose of yoga ultimately gained enlightenment in his lifetime.
