Today is the third year we are celebrating globally the International Day of Yoga after its first inauguration on 21st June 2016. As a living Yogi, I would like to share the three truths about yoga which was shared by the Avatar of Sadashiva (Super Consciousness), Paramahamsa Nithyananda (fondly known as Swamiji) where he addressed the world in a mind-blowing discourse, sharing sacred secrets on the true origins of Yoga.
Here is what you have never been told but need to know about Yoga:
- Yoga is from Sadashiva – The first thing you need to know if that Yoga did not originate from Patanjali. “Patanjali is the organizer, not the originator. That’s the first thing you need to know” said Paramahamsa Nithyananda. He explained “With all my respects to Patanjali, I want to declare this truth to the world: 60,000 years before Patanjali, a Being walking on the Planet earth, assuming the physical form, Adi Guru, Sadashiva, the Founder and Father of the Yoga System. No doubt that Patanjali Yoga Sutras is a great book, but not the first book. Unfortunately, many popular Yoga Gurus all over the world, always stop with Patanjali. Very few day Yoga was before Patanjali, and even if they say, they are not able to present the scriptures and literature. All the revelations of Sadashiva are called Agamas, the complete work of Sadashiva where He presents detailed elaborate material with high quality precision. People are very comfortable having Patanjali as the originator of Yoga because Patanjali can be secularized, but not Sadashiva. But it is time for the world to know and understand that Yoga is rooted in Sanatana Hindu Dharma.
- Yoga is from Hinduism. The second important truth is that Yoga is from Hinduism. Always ask for the original source. It is unfortunate that the original scriptures revealed by Sadashiva are not available for the masses. It is unfortunate that nobody promoted that because it is very easy to secularize Patanjali, it is difficult to secularize Sadashiva. We need to understand that Yoga cannot be developed and cannot be separated from Hinduism. It is a perfect system that was revealed by Sadashiva and further organized by living enlightened masters, disciples of Sadashiva over thousands of years, with a clear purpose and intention. You cannot develop on Sadashiva. Yoga is a complete science that has taken into account of all types of bodies: past, present and yet to come in the future. Altering Yoga is not development but dilution. The secular world has diluted a great science that we are yet to discover and reveal to the masses. But first understand, if you have practised something in the name of Yoga, ask your teacher for the clear reference. Where did this technique come from? Always ask for the source. Only then you should even consider practising these techniques safely.
- Yoga is the science of radiating enlightenment. The third important truth is that Yoga is not just the science of keeping you healthy, Yoga is the science of radiating enlightenment. ‘Through Yoga one attains liberation’ ~ Sastra Pramana, scriptural authority from Sadashiva where He reveals in Kirana Agama Yoga Pada (II.3). Through the practice of Yoga, one can attain beneficent accomplishments. He can attain liberation. He can ascend to the state of ineffable bliss. Yoga is not just the ability to stretch your body, it is the ability to manifest what you want. Yoga is not all about making you a better man, Yoga is all about making you a Superman. The best that can happen to you on the path of Yoga is getting rid of all the self-doubt, self-hatred and self-denial (SDHD), the root cause of all incompletions. Swamiji actively teaches the science of completing with these collectively called SDHD, discarding all the mental patterns that limit us from living to our highest potential. As long as we carry inadequate, immature cognitions about ourselves, about life, others, God and the world, we continue to feel separate from the Whole. When we complete with all our limited cognitions and discover our true Self, Yoga happens. Manifesting powerful cognitions is Authenticity; taking it to the next level is Manifesting Shaktis (powers). If you don’t develop powerful cognitions, even if the cosmos blesses you, you will miss it or abuse it.
- Ultimately, Yoga is for awakening of the Kundalini Shakti, awakening inner powers and merging the individual consciousness with the Cosmic Consciousness. It is designed to experience ONENESS, Advaita and express all the mystical powers outlined by Sadashiva.
In essence, Science of Yoga is a gift from Sadashiva and it is rooted in Hinduism for the purpose of radiating enlightenment – radiating the state, space and Shaktis of Sadashiva. Namaste!
