It isn't too hard to note the importance of something as function-oriented as Yoga in our everyday lives. Yoga isn't anymore a novel idea regarded by monks as a tool to access the 'divine' and has become quite a necessity in today's day and age. The world we live in today is quite a complex one. It isn't all hunky dory. In an age of instant gratification, we have lesser time on hands from which to derive the best of our efforts. Hence, there is an increased stress by and large with whatever we do. No matter what your profession, there are fledgling anxieties and a sense of waywardness that has eaten into our lives. We seek satisfaction but aren't always satisfied and in our constant lookout for happiness, we often tend to lead insular lives. This in turn affects the harmony between mind and soul, an absolute 'must have' if one is to seek pure contentment in life. In here lies the brilliance of Yoga as a saviour from life's woes. Yoga is not just a meditative practice. It is a combination of the science of mindfulness attained through the art of yogic practices. While attainment of mind-body-soul harmony is the key, Yoga stands on the pedestal of concentration and meditation. In simple words, in order to attain silence or contentment, it is important to break away from noise. Similarly, Yoga implies that in the process of attainment of mind and body harmony, it is important to train and silence the mind. This can distill the mind from resentful or unwanted thoughts. And once our inner being reaches the state of 'nothingness', or, thoughtlessness', that is when harmony sets in. That said, Yoga has increasingly found an important space in our lives. What began years back as a sophisticated, new age 'trend' has become a lifestyle stabilizer, safeguarding us from mental, physical and emotional pain and anxieties. On the occasion of the International Yoga Day, celebrated each year on June 21, What's Up Life is delighted to inform you of some common facts associated with this important global event.
