Yoga for holistic health: An analytical study


Dr. Hoshiyar Singh


Yoga signifies the profound encounter with inner unity and oneness, a state achieved by transcending the dichotomy of mind and matter and merging into the supreme reality. It operates as a scientific discipline through which individuals navigate the path toward truth. The ultimate objective of all yoga practices lies in attaining truth, wherein the individual soul harmonizes itself with the supreme soul or god. At its core, yoga embodies mastery over the mind, and true contentment emerges when one can adeptly discern the real from the unreal, the eternal from the transient, and the virtuous from the detrimental through discernment and wisdom.
Yoga, beyond its spiritual aspects, serves as a therapeutic endeavor. Through the gentle elongation of muscles, internal organ massage, and comprehensive nerve toning, numerous diseases, even those deemed incurable, can witness alleviation or elimination. Its significance delves into the realms of mental and spiritual well-being, providing a holistic approach to health.
The practice of Yogasana, rooted in centuries of physiotherapy, extends its healing touch to a myriad of seemingly incurable and persistent ailments. The scientific precision of yoga as a self-treatment method is revealed, with Pranayama acting as the life force, regulating breath, and earning the title of the soul of yoga. Acknowledging the purifying role of bathing in cleansing both body and mind, the primary focus remains on fortifying the nervous system, concurrently enhancing the mind's concentration power.
