Dharma is to cultivate the knowledge and practice of laws and principles that holds
together the fabric of reality, natural phenomena and personality of human beings
in dynamic interdependence and harmony.
Meditation is just a science of paying attention, channeling your energy into a focal point of an object that will help unfold the
finer aspects of self. It usually involves focusing on an object such as paintings, color patterns, a sound, or your breath. I like to put my tongue to the roof of my mouth during ujjayi and fold back my eye’s gaze into the third eye, and then project an “Om” sound and go up and down a scale of tones creating a beneficial vibration for the cellular body. Meditation allows your mind activity to settle down and it results in clarity and you becoming more peaceful, calm, and focused. Breathe is a form of yoga. You will begin understand that there are two worlds we exist in, the spiritual and the non-spiritual, and will start to recognize the differences between the two. You will achieve emotional stability and mental clarity, inner balance, and insight into who and what you truly are. Yoga is a way of being, it’s a lifestyle passed down to you from over 5,000 years of history. Almost like a guide to help you live a happy and fulfilling life, to keep you in constant flow. The actual word “yoga” comes from the Vedic Sanskrit word “Yuj” which means “union”or to “join” or “unite”, signifying the connection between mind, body, and spirit.
