Importance of yoga and meditation for world peace
In this century Yoga and meditation should be an integral part of life. People are crazy behind the materialistic joy for temporary sense gratification. They don’t fear to play with nature for their comfort. As a result, they are getting the reaction of their action in the form of earthquake, terrorism, disasters. 🙁
The importance and benefits of Yoga are recognized and appreciated all over the world. 😎 The peace and brotherhood can be established only by Yoga. Though it is originated from India, Yoga is not confined to any particular religion or country.
Human beings have been practicing every type of yoga, but still, they have not been able to liberate themselves from bondages. Some are on the path of Karma, some or on Bhakti and some on Gyana, Raja yoga etc.
“With yoga of the intellect, that is with the intellect in firm connection with the supreme, you achieve unlimited power.” 😀
If the power does not increase then the yoga is not accurate. There needs to be so much power that you are able to do any job successfully.
If I start describing the importance of Yoga and meditation it will be an endless journey. I am highlighting some special some important points on ‘importance of yoga and meditation for world peace’ to save your time.
Yoga awakens the soul.
The basic concept of Yoga is the Union of the soul with the supreme soul or the almighty. As the power of yoga increases the soul experiences its true form, and there is a new consciousness in the mind. Inner fear, useless worry, worry for the future and all negative habits are finished.
Each and every action is influenced by the state of our mind. If there are good thoughts in the mind, then the actions will be completed easily and successfully. If there is confusion in the mind, then also the action will be confused. If there is only a little influence from other thoughts then the time taken to accomplish an action can be halved. Difficult and impossible jobs can also be accomplished with the power of yoga.
If the power does not increase then the yoga is not accurate. There should be so much power that you are able to do any job successfully.
Spread the vibrations of power to those who are experiencing difficulties. These weakened souls then experience power in them and have the courage to overcome any difficulties.
No matter how much progress the scientists may have made, human beings are still the servants of the elements; whereas with yoga power we can control the elements completely.
It can make you completely pure:
Only 20% of the power of the mind is used in useful actions and the rest of the mind power is wasted away. By remaining yoga yukt, that power is accumulated and the soul experiences itself as very powerful.
Together with this, when there is the connection with the almighty, the power, just like an electric current, flows towards the soul. If the soul is in a bodiless stage, free from wasteful thoughts, then it is filled completely with complete power. This power of yoga helps us remain completely pure in this impure atmosphere. Complete celibacy is the fruit of the power of yoga.
“There is the kind of peace that only God will know eternally. In this physical world, I may find peace in the mountains, by the sea, or in something I do.”
But to know peace as an unlimited experience I have to understand the dimension of peace that is God’s. What is his experience?
God’s peace is not derived from the body and its sense, not through relationships or activity. It is a deeply internalized experience, which emerges from within his very being, so much so that it could be said that he is the very form of peace, the true source of peace. God is peace.
In overcoming difficulties:
A job can be done successfully by remaining free from wasteful thoughts. Obstacles do not become a headache for those souls who have experienced this truth. With this power we can change the attitudes and thoughts of others, we can change someone’s enmity into friendliness.
You should use your powers to destroy our own or someone else’s obstacles. WE can imbibe the powers from the almighty and spread the vibrations of power to those souls who are experiencing difficulties. These weakened souls then experience power in themselves and have the courage to overcome difficulties.
When we send good wishes to a soul who is experiencing hopelessness they experience inspiration from this. In this way, with our elevated stage, we can heal others. If a soul is unsuccessful in transforming their bitter sanskaras, then if a soul who is complete in yoga has good wishes, and gives cooperation of the power of yoga, they are able to easily remove the sanskaras of the weak soul.
The divine vibrations of our true knowledge finish the vibrations of false knowledge, and other souls are influenced by the truth.
If we debate without yoga they can’t accept it. We must debate, keeping soul conscious vision, using elevated words, with peace and patience and keeping our contact with the ocean of knowledge.
For world Peace:
Everyone is suffering from the terrific results of terrorism all over the world. When you move your eyes on the newspaper most news you get on robbery, theft, accident, violence, rape, murder, corruption etc. Terrorism is growing day by day leading massacre and killing innocent people worldwide.
It’s the yoga which can remove the violence all over the world, establishing peace and harmony. Some people do bad karma or action due to their bad sanskaras or impressions. When someone kills or murders then it’s the violent thought which sprouts from his internal mind and converts into action. People are associated with bad habits due to their bad impressions stacked inside them from millions of births. The serious practice of Yoga can only cut the root of these impressions.
No one is bad or evil in this world. We can give a chance to make them change their life. Ratnakar who was a violent robber, got the association of Narad Muni. He could be able to erase his bad sanskaras by serious austerity and became a great saint named as Balmiki, who wrote the Ramayan. Angulimal a ruthless serial killer, who used to wear the necklace of chopped fingers of innocent people, got the association of Buddha and he was transformed into a saint. If they could then why not these people?
The human soul is not associated with any type of bad or good sanskaras, anger, emotion, greed. It is clear and transparent. It is hidden inside the heart due to the impression of action, anger, ego, hatred. Only Yoga can help you visualize and know the joyful soul.
If everyone walks along the holy path of Yoga, the day is not so far when the Ram Rajya or Kingdom of Happiness will be established. Gandhi’s vision of Ram Rajya will not only be the dream he envisioned, it can be real. This is the importance of Yoga and meditation for world peace.
Yoga and world Transformation:
We can light up the entire world through the power of yoga easily. We can spread the type of vibrations we wish. In the future souls with the power of yoga will become the center of attraction, like the sun and give a new direction to the world.
Both scientists and yogis are searching for happiness, but the approach is different. Those with the power of yoga know very well that their power is a very elevated one, compared to the power of science. Presently the inclination of humans is towards science power, but in the future, they will be more inclined towards yoga power.
Most people consider yoga as bending, twisting of the body or doing asanas. But the Higher Yoga begins with the Pranayam and Meditation. The more you practice the meditation the more your mind becomes calm and tranquil. The goal of meditation is to bring your mind under your control. Our mind is restless and runs along with the 5 different senses.
It is the practice of meditation which can bring your mind to deep concentration and the stage of focus. Then you can discriminate the reality and illusion. Your body is the illusion, the world is the illusion, the universe is the illusion. What you see inside is the true, the supreme joy, the divine peace, waves of happiness.
Meditation is the way to start your inner journey to open the path of your soul. You can realize the crystal clear blinking soul, which awakens from the heart and lightens the forehead and the third eye.
Don’t practice asanas or yogic kriyas by just reading books or watching training videos. You can practice a little bit but the wrong postures may be harmful to your body.
Points to remember:
- Always practice under the guidance of experienced teachers or Gurus.
- Before meditation, make your body relax and energized. You can do the energization exercises or asanas to move the prana Shakti in your entire body. Or you can have a walk.
- Do some body massage, spa for better relaxation after asana practice.
- Try to sit in a comfortable asana like lotus pose or semi lotus pose for meditation.
- Try to sit in a comfortable asana for a long time without changing the position.
- Keep a room separate in your house for Yoga. Keep it clean and don’t use it for other activities.
