Yoga is a highly evolved science. It is composed of a series of steps that begins with mastering the senses and culminates in the final reunion of the mind with supreme Consciousness.
Yoga is meeting and merging.
Yoga is a concise term that expresses the vastness of the practices a seeker must perform.
Yoga is the seed, the beginning, it is also the fruit, the culmination.
Yoga, when properly understood, invokes the experience that lies far beyond the borders of your familiar world.
Yoga is discipline, not in the sense of being crushed under a boulder that is rolling down a mountain but of being in the presence of the seer within.
Yoga is to know the Knower, to know the Witness, to know the One who watches your waking state, your dream state, and your state of meditation.
To know the Knower is Yoga.
