Yoga for beginners – Evaluate your Fitness

Practical without theory makes mechanic, whereas with theory makes Engineer

Lesson of Yoga for Beginners, that will be covered today at Wikipurana, are all meant to judge your fitness for the course. The following topics will be covered here today, all of which will judge your fitness. If you feel that they are not the features of your, stay away from the next Advanced Yoga classes. Today’s coverage goes like this –

  • Corrections to be made while starting Yoga for beginners

While describing Yoga for beginners, I must say one thing at the very beginning – Yoga is not for all. The urge of learning and practicing yoga must come from inside. Otherwise Yoga for beginners will break all your life activities, then and there. This urge cannot be developed by others, if you yourself won’t find any response from within. Someone can motivate you or can direct you towards yoga, towards attaining salvation or towards the ultimate goal of life, but when all those makes senses to you, then only start your journey in the path of Yoga, otherwise not.

 ‘Yoga’, the term essentially means Addition, addition of your mind to soul. (We have covered that in our first lesson). Hence, unless you feel the urge within your heart to unite with the soul, time has not come for you to start Yoga for beginners. Make a point that Time is the ultimate guru of Mankind. He always keeps a note of what you have been in your all lives and at what state you are standing now. When time feels it to be perfect for you to feel the agony of salvation, he will start to incline you initially to Prakriti (Nature), since she is the most sensual form of that Soul.

Hence, unless you feel the love for Prakriti and naturally feel an urge to know her better, you must stay away from Yoga classes. Prakriti being the most physical form of Perfect Soul (Paramatma), a natural love comes in a Yogi to mix with her feelings. Whenever, you feel the urge from inside to get wet in rain, only for loving nature; whenever you feel the urge to stare at night sky; whenever you feel attachment towards wind (irrespective of North  or south wind), time has come for you to go for classes of Yoga for beginners.

What can be the result if you start Practicing Yoga at a time, which is not indicated by time (Mahakal)? This question might or might not peep in your mind. Irrespective of the fact, whether that’s peeping or not, answer to this question must be clear to you. I am talking about real yoga, not just sitting postures or meditations- those are not yoga. Hatha Yoga is not included in Yoga at all. Rather, that’s a manipulation by the low-minded immature people.

Yoga, in reality turns the direction of life from the material world towards eternity. Hence, the first effect to those, who undergo Yoga for beginners, is their slow detachment from material world. So, if time has not come for you and you go for the practices, it will happen such that you will be annoyed by your social or family duties. Results can be even more devastating, when you will feel that you are feeling less interest in works. If you feel so that your dedication at all works is decreasing, you are willing to find shortcuts for high income and if they start after starting your journey with Yoga for beginners, you must immediately stop your Yoga lessons. Otherwise, what time has laid as your path can be missed and missing those means a horrific life.

The first starting in this path must be your learning from the scripts. Make it sure that you prefer the original scripts only and no videos or other mode of interpretations. Yes learning is essential while trying to start with Yoga for beginners. A person without theoretical knowledge can also work, but he is called then a mechanic. When that person learns first and then does practical, he becomes an engineer. Without lessons of scripts, you will be unaware about the righteous practices, that should be followed while going ahead with Yoga for beginners.

As you will read the scripts, you will develop an urge at your heart too for adjudging them with your life and that develops Knowledge in real time. Reading books will give you information only and never knowledge. Knowledge is generated when you interpret those information with your own life. Hence, the first thing in Yoga for beginners is to read the original scripts, so that no interpolated ideas can make a nest in your mind. Secondly, those scripts must not remain as information for you. If you are unable to match those with your life, that’s the second indication of your unfitness for lessons of Yoga for beginners. If that is not happening with you, that proofs your time has not come to be a Yogi and you must leave the path, as of now.

Many think that watching videos will do what the script usually does. Other thinks that there is no need of Gyan Yoga, Bhakti or devotion is all and everything. I must say here that you all are right, but very much wrong. Videos or even books that are written based on original scripts are equally worthy as the main scripts are, when they are written without any thoughts and interpolations. But, practically, that is not possible. Just find that with your own.

You are being said a word and you are saying that to someone else in a quote. Although you are using the quote and also using the same words that has been uttered to you, your expressions will narrate what you feel about that quoted words. The listener will listen the words as well as observe your expressions and then decide whether to believe, trust or act. Likewise, a TV show or a book that has been written based on the original scripts, adds their own expressions to the originals and at times (mostly in the cases of Puranas and ancient scripts) adds their own interpretation or some local stories to the originals. This changes the script entirely and even damages the Knowledge encoded in the originals.

Thus, you will keep away yourself from the original knowledge, the real truth and start believing the fakes or interpreted ones. Hence, watch the shows, so that your mind can remain busy in divinity, but evaluate what is shown there with your knowledge gathered from original scripts. If you can follow this path, you will soon arise from the state of Yoga for Beginners and will reach the state of Advanced Yoga. And if not followed, you will remain in the beginner’s stage for lives and ultimately will be thrown away from the corridor of Yoga, by means of Maya (illusions).

About the statements that Bhakti is all and everything – You are absolutely correct. Knowledge of engineering from books has no value at all, unless you know to do those practically. If someone has not read a single book, has not generated a single portion of knowledge and still very much perfect in practical, he will be given much more importance that that of an engineer. But still, he will remain as mechanic, unless he generates theoretical knowledge. If you look at the society, you will find that there are many such mechanics who have taken theoretical classes later on, to turn themselves as engineer. There lies the key of Yoga for beginners.

Yes, Bhakti is all and everything, but that is bhakti which generates knowledge or Gyan in your heart naturally, without any need of reading scripts. If that is not generated within you, then your Bhakti is not also in a proper track. The ultimate morale of Gyan Yoga is to realize that Soul is everything – Soul is within you, outside you, is in your enemy, is in your friends, is the only doer, is the only thinker, is the only one existing.

Bhakti is so much powerful that this morale is transmitted to the heart of a devotee, even if he/she doesn’t read any books. However, if you are a believer of Bhakti and non-believer of Gyan, and still the morale of Gyan has not been developed in your heart, your Bhakti is impure for sure. You must immediately develop yourself with Yoga for beginners, or must leave the path of Yoga and concentrate in your material life.

Why to start Yoga for Beginners with Gyan Yoga?
