To make Yoga into a physical practice is a crime on our heritage and an abuse on our pranic forces. According to the texts Lord Shiva taught the Yogic science to humanity for liberation and freedom from suffering and definitely not to build muscle and strength………as a lot of so called yogas are emphasising on these days.
The very art is to free ourselves from tensions so that pranic energy can move freely………. How can one create the tensions & call it Yoga.
Ok Yoga has done a detour and come back to our country from the west…….. Our job is now 2 fold… to continue to research this wonderful science to apply it to modern times & secondly to break away from some strange concepts that westernisation brought back.
To all those who stand as yoga gurus….. a prayer to enter into the depths & live Yoga, not tarnish it’s name or misuse it for name & fame.
