Yoga and Meditation Tour

What is yoga?
There may be thousands of definitions but the essence of it is one. Even though the essence is one there are thousands of methods for Yoga and many Yoga too. It does not imply that Yoga does not get related to one's daily life but it should be known that yoga is practice, exploration and at last victory. The ashram has a strong bond between yoga and itself. Every step of it is Yoga and trying to materialize the truth"All life is Yoga" as told by Sri Aurobindo.

The ashram runs hatha yoga classes where the guests from different countries can come and take residential yoga courses.

The yoga's essence is that it is the union of individual consciousness with the universal consciousness. For this of course, the environment plays a very great role to fullfill the inner thirst of an aspirant. The Ashram environment is perfect Yogic environment.

You are welcomed to take part in residential Hatha Yoga and Pranayama classes along with an exposure to all the other aspects of Yoga in an amazing environment with diverse programs that befit a full fledged Yoga class.

Your help will directly go to the welfare of the children of the Ashram.

The Yoga Classes are taken by Dr. Srijana Bhusal a young vibrant Yoga teacher who has graduated from the prestigious Arogya Mandir from Gorakhpur, India in Naturopathy and Yoga.

1. What meditation exactly means

There are two words used in English to express the Indian idea of dhyana, "meditation" and "contemplation". Meditation means properly the concentration of the mind on a single train of ideas which work out a single subject. Contemplation means regarding mentally a single object, image, idea so that the knowledge about the object, image or idea may arise naturally in the mind by force of the concentration. Both these things are forms of dhyana, for the principle of dhyana is mental concentration whether in thought, vision or knowledge.

This form leads to another, the emptying of all thought out of the mind so as to leave it a sort of pure vigilant blank on which the divine knowledge may come and imprint itself, undisturbed by the inferior thoughts of the ordinary human mind and with the clearness of a writing in white chalk on a blackboard. You will find that the Gita speaks of this rejection of all mental thought as one of the methods of yoga and even the method it seems to prefer. This may be called the dhyana of liberation, as it frees the mind from slavery to the mechanical process of thinking and allows it to think or not to think, as it pleases and when it pleases, or to choose its own thoughts or else to go beyond thought to the pure perception of Truth called in our philosophy Vijnana.

Meditation is the easiest process for the human mind, but the narrowest in its results; contemplation more difficult, but greater; self-observation and liberation from the chains of Thought the most difficult of all, but the widest and greatest in its fruits. One can choose any of them according to one's bent and capacity.

The perfect method is to use them all, each in its own place and for its own object; but this would need a fixed faith and firm patience and a great energy of Will in the self-application to the yoga.

2. What should be the object of ideas for meditation?

Whatever is most consonant with your nature and highest aspirations.
But if you ask me for an absolute answer, then I must say that Brahman is always the best object for meditation or contemplation and the idea on which the mind should fix is that of God in all, all in God and all as God.

It does not matter essentially whether it is the Impersonal or the Personal God, or subjectively, the One Self. But this is the idea I have found the best, because it is the highest and embraces all other truths, whether truths of this world or of the other worlds or beyond all phenomenal existence, - "All this is the Brahman."

3. Conditions internal and external that are essential for meditation

There are no essential external conditions, but solitude and seclusion at the time of meditation as well as stillness of the body are helpful, sometimes almost necessary to the beginner. But one should not be bound by external conditions. Once the habit of meditation is formed, it should be made possible to do it in all circumstances, lying, sitting, walking, alone, in company, in silence or in the midst of noise etc.

The first internal condition necessary is concentration of the will against the obstacles to meditation, i.e. wandering of the mind, forgetfulness, sleep, physical and nervous impatience and restlessness etc.

The second is an increasing purity and calm of the inner consciousness (citta) out of which thought and emotion arise, i.e. a freedom from all disturbing reactions, such as anger, grief, depression, anxiety about worldly happenings etc.

(Words of the Divine Mother)
I think the most important thing is to know why one meditates; this is what gives the quality of the meditation and makes it of one order or another.

You may meditate to open yourself to the divine Force, you may meditate to reject the ordinary consciousness, you may meditate to enter the depths of your being, you may meditate to learn how to give yourself integrally; you may meditate for all kinds of things. You may meditate to enter into peace and calm and silence -this is what people generally do, but without much success. But you may also meditate to receive the Force of transformation, to discover the points to be transformed, to trace out the line of progress. And then you may also meditate for very practical reasons: when you have a difficulty to clear up, a solution to find, when you want help in some action or other. You may meditate for that too.

I think everyone has his own mode of meditation. But if one wants the meditation to be dynamic, one must have an aspiration for progress and the meditation must be done to help and fulfil this aspiration for progress. Then it becomes dynamic.The number of hours spent in meditation is no proof of spiritual progress. It is a proof of your progress when you no longer have to make an effort to meditate. Then you have rather to make an effort to stop meditating: it becomes difficult to stop meditation, difficult to stop thinking of the Divine, difficult to come down to the ordinary consciousness.

Then you are sure of progress, then you have made real progress when concentration in the Divine is the necessity of your life, when you cannot do without it, when it continues naturally from morning to night whatever you may be engaged in doing. Whether you sit down to meditation or go about and do things and work, what is required of you is consciousness; that is the one need -to be constantly conscious of the Divine.

But is not sitting down to meditation an indispensable discipline, and does it not give a more intense and concentrated union with the Divine?

That may be. But a discipline in itself is not what we are seeking. What we are seeking is to be concentrated on the Divine in all that we do, at all times, in all our acts and in every movement. There are some here who have been told to meditate; but also there are others who have not been asked to do any meditation at all. But it must not be thought that they are not progressing. They too follow a discipline, but it is of another nature. To work, to act with devotion and an inner consecration is also a spiritual discipline. The final aim is to be in constant union with the Divine, not only in meditation but in all circumstances and in all the active life.

Naturopathy

We were born in the lap of Mother nature, lived with mother nature and grown with mother nature and will die in the lap of Mother nature. This caring mother nurtures us, loves us and is the guardian of our life so is she responsible for our health too. We believe that Nature has all the secret of our life so we follow a different system of medical health which is different from others like Allopathy and is known as "Naturopathy".

Naturopathy believes that the body is made from 5 agents, namely; sky, water, fire, mud and air. Although many processes are too complicated and vast and treatment is like secret but the cure of many have been possible through naturopathy along with Ayurveda. Naturopathy is the treatement without any side effects and it's a slow but sure process.

Naturopathy is a philosophy. It is the system of treatment in which 7 elements are used to restore the health of a patient. It says all disease are same, their causes are same and the treatements are same. The causes of the diseases are the presence of foreign matter, which can be cured by the seven fundamental elements of the Earth. It believes nature itself is a doctor, but people are ignorant about it.
