Develop the Inner Peace by Removing of the Disturbing Factors Through Yoga.
It is impossible to practice concentration of the mind unless the mind is purified, that is, made peaceful in nature. The best way for this shown in yoga philosophy. It is the way of cultivating the attitude of friendliness, compassion, gladness and indifference in respect of people or events which are causing happiness, misery, virtue or vice. By maintaining this attitude, that is, friendliness to the happy ,compassion for the unhappy, gladness about the virtuous and indifference to those who are full of vice, the mind of the aspirant becomes free from disturbing influence and as result it become peaceful and undisturbed . The process of introversion follows easily. The mind by nature is full of unrest, like pond that disturbed by the falling of objects like boulders boulders, stones, etc. The unsteady mind cannot become concentrated easily. As we know the nature of the mind has a tendency to be attracted towards the outside world. It is not in the nature of the mind to look within.Therefore, when you are trying to turn the mind inside, the obstacles and impurities must be first removed. Jealously, hate and the element of competition cause a lot of impurities in the mind. When we see a happy and prosperous person, we feel jealous. This causes a disturbance in the subconscious mind and obstructs the mind from being concentrated. The results in fearful visions. When we come across a person suffering, we enjoy it if he happens to be an enemy. This is also one of the impurities of the mind. Similarly, we often criticize virtuous persons and hail the deeds of vicious person. All this causes disturbance in the mind and comes in the way of peace and meditation.
In yoga philosophy has shown a way of overcoming these disturbances. The fourfold attitude which he ask us to develop gives rise to inner peace by the removal of the disturbing factors, not only from the conscious level, but also from the deepest parts of the subconscious.
Indication of Lights in Meditation
Various kinds of lights manifests in during meditation owing to concentration. In the beginning, a bright white light, the size of a pin’s point will appear in the forehead in the six chakra, the space between the two eyebrows, which corresponds tentatively to the six chakra of the astral body. you will notice, when the eyes are closed,different colored lights,white,yellow,red smoky,blue,green,mixed lights, flashes like lightning, like fire burning char-coal, fire-flies,moon,sun,starts.These lights appears in the mental space,chidakas. Theses all the light belong to their elements like( earth,water,fire,air,sky,)and they have their own special colours,yellow,white,red,smoky and blue. The yellow and white lights are very commonly seen, Red and blue lights are rarely noticeable. Frequently there is a combination of white and yellow lights. In the beginning, small balls of white lights float about before the mind’s eye. When you first observe this, be assured that the mind is becoming more steady and that you are progressing in concentration. After some months, the size of the light will increase and you will see a full blaze of white light, bigger than the sun. In the beginning, theses lights are not steady; they come and disappear immediately.They flash out from above the forehead and from the sides. They cause peculiar sensation of the extreme joy and happiness and there is an intense desire for a vision of these lights. When you have steady and systematic practice of two or three hours in the morning and two to three hours at night, theses lights appears more frequently and remain steadily for long time, the vision of the lights is a great encouragement in meditation practice. It impels you to stick steadily to meditation .it give you strong faith also in super physical matters. The appearance of the light denotes that you are transcending the physical consciousness. You are in a semi- conscious state when the light appears. You are the between two planes. You must not shake the body when these lights manifest. You must be perfectly steady in the sitting pose. You should breathe very, very slowly and it will be remain till long time.
Become a perfect yogi
The word yoga means union between individual soul and supreme soul. The science that teaches the way of acquiring this occult knowledge is called the yoga shastra.hatha yoga concerns with the physical body and control of breath. Raja yoga deals with mind. Raja yoga and hatha yoga are necessary counterparts of each other. No one can become a perfect yogi without knowledge of the practice of both. Raja yoga begins where properly practice hatha yoga ends.Hatha is considered to be a compound word formed of two syllable “Ha’ and ‘tha’, Ha means the moon and the ‘tha’ means the sun .these corresponds to breath, which flow through the left and right nostrils.hatha yoga teaches the way to unite the sun and the moon, the Prana and Apana (life force energy) through the regulation of breath.
Hatha yoga is conducive to health and longevity. Its practice regulates the action of heart, lungs and brain. Its promotes digestion and circulation of blood.Kidneys, liver and all other internal viscera work efficiently. It removes all sorts of diseases. The base of yoga is the first four limbs of ashtanga yoga,(Yama,Niyama,Asana and pranayama).The wise Rishis of yore had formulated these as aids to spiritual culture and preservation of a high standard of health,vigour and vitality.
Ordinary physical exercise develop the superficial muscles of the body only, one can become a strong man with a beautiful physique. But asanas are intended for the thorough exercise of the internal organs, like, liver, spleen, pancreas, etc .in maintaining health in metabolism and in structure, growth and nutrition of different kinds of cells and tissues of the body.
Who is really want to become a perfect yogi they need of a strong and healthy race of body. Various factors have brought about their degeneration. Regular and judicious practice of these valuable exercises prescribed by our yogis of yore will doubtless pave a long way in regenerating the race and in the production of such a strong and healthy race.
84 ASANAS USE TO PRACTICED BY YOGIS
In olden days these Asanas were practiced monasteries and so the people were strong and healthy and had long life. In school and colleges these Asanas are introduced now days. The postures are as many in numbers as there are numbers of species of living creatures in this Universe (84 lacs of body, there are 84 lacs asanas describe by lord shiva. Among them 84 are best and among these 84.32 have been found very useful for mankind.
There are some which can be practiced while standing, sitting, lying down, inverted etc.Generally after age of ten or twelve these asanas can be practiced. People of twenty or thirty year of age perform all asarana nicely. Practice for month or two will render all rigid tendons, muscles and bones very elasticl.Even old age can practice all asanas, they can give up head stand if they are not physically fit. There are persons of advance age who practice head stand also.
In India there are the monks who fallow the non dualistic philosophy, they afraid to do asanas(postures) and pranayams(breathing practice) on the ground that the practice will intensify goddess and militate against his practice of non attachment. Though the two paths hatha yoga and non dualistic are entirely deferent yet a non dualistic can harmoniously combine postures and breathing to his best advantage. We have seen many non dualistic sickly conditions with very poor physique and dilapidated constitutions. They can very hardly any non dualistic practice. The body is closely related to the mind. A weak sickly body means a weak mind also. a non dualistic do a little practice of asana and pranayama to keep up his body and mind strong and healthy, he can do his best practice of meditation to reach the supper conscious state. If these two product (postures & breathing) breaks down, you will not reach the goal of self enlightenment.

During intense muscular activity, the metabolism is increased, Metabolism is the anabolic and catabolic changes that take place in the body (wear and tear in the system) anabolic changes are constructive and catabolic changes are the destructive ones. During metabolism all the muscular tissues are supplied with fresh oxygenated blood or plasma through capillary oozing and carbon dioxide is taken back through the veins to the right auricle of the heart. This is termed tissue – respiration. Just as interchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide and oxygen takes place in the lungs, so also interchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen takes place in the tissues also. Mark the wonderful creation and working of the internal mechanism of the body. How marvelous is the machinery! Can a scientist make a single atom, a single cell, a single organ of the body?

The preparation for practicing advance postures
ATRI YOGA CENTER
The Yoga philosophy unmistakably recognizes the inter-dependence of body and mind. It prescribe exercises both for the body and the mind, so that the two might develop themselves in a spirit of co-operation to such a balanced psycho-physiological condition that they should cease to enslave the human soul. Yoga practitioners are convinced that thus freed from the thralldom of body and mind, the soul realize its boundless existence of infinite bliss. While acknowledging the interdependence of body and mind, yoga sutra holds that the influence of the mind on the body is far more powerful than the influence of the body on the mind. Hence mental exercises from the bulk of the yoga practitioners curriculum, although physical exercise have also a definite place in it. Yoga postures are physical exercise. They form the third item of the yogic curriculum. The first and second limbs are mental exercise. They form the first two items. First and second limbs are given precedence in the curriculum, because without their practice, asanas (postures) will not give the desired results completely.
