SCIENCE OF yog
IS THE DRIVER OF LIFE...
THE DRIVER IS NOT
WHAT IS CALLED "I"....
In the last few postings at this web site of
Prajapati Vishva Aashram Foundation (PVAF), the
effort has been focused to relay knowledge about life to humanity
TO MAKE TOMORROW HAPPIER WITH KNOWLEDGE......
This knowledge about life called veD
= SCIENCES OF CREATION AND LIFE.....contains what is called
SCIENCE OF yog (incorrectly
spelled yoga from sNskRUt phonetics)...This SCIENCE OF
yog is critical to living a daily life which would be free
from stress and anxiety and not just focused on creating wealth or earning a
living at any cost....and is very vital if one is continually trying to
MAKE TOMORROW HAPPIER......
This SCIENCE OF yog
is no less important in the drive for life for the driver of life...An analogy
would be pilot of an airplane....
If the pilot who is the driver does not know anything about
making of the airplane and has not learned how to fly the airplane then the
PILOT AND THE AIRPLANE WILL NOT FLY
AND CRASH....Similar is the situation with man or woman who does
not drive his/her daily life without learning and then practicing the
SCIENCE OF yog.....
Here is the testimonial to the above knowledge from
yog "experts" in USA......

It's the great American question: What's the return on my
investment? Stephen Cope sought to answer it on the subject of yoga, putting
the question to 25 of the top yoga and meditation teachers in this country and
Canada in his book
"Will Yoga & Meditation
Really Change My Life?"
"As I look around at my peers, I realize that many of us
are going gray, and contemplating our retirement packages. Well, what do we
have to say for ourselves?" asks Cope, who explores everything from family to
social activism to aging and death through the eyes of those who began their
yoga practices in the '70s.
"The biggest ah-ha (of the book) is what the
spiritual teachers had whittled down from grandiose expectations," says Cope,
a psychotherapist and yoga instructor for three decades.
Yoga teacher Sylvia Boorstein summed up her years of
practice with: "I got kind. I am kinder to myself and about myself, as well as
kinder to other people. And the kindness has made me happier," she says in the
book's first essay.
Patricia Walden, 57, one of the most senior teachers in the
Iyengar method of yoga, has learned to live with "impermanence." She no longer
has to know the outcome to feel safe.
She developed, she says, the "grace" to pause before taking
an action and stand back and look at life objectively.
"Yoga has strengthened me in a very healthy way," she says.
Cope, scholar in residence and senior instructor at the Kriipalu Center for
Yoga & Health in Massachusetts, says he is still the 13-year-old who loves
church and singing.
But at 50, he has also experienced "radical
self-acceptance." He has evolved from wanting to change everything to being
present with the way things are, says this article.
