International Yoga Day
Yoga is absolute union; union with self; union with one’s environment. This is a state of complete coherence. The lack of difference blesses the practitioner with complete peace or the highly aspired state of enlightenment. In the vicinity of coherence, hostile tendencies get eliminated. Internally coherent system has the ability to repel disruptive forces. Non-coherent minds get easily disturbed by external forces.
Imagine a state where there is no disagreement; where you are happy with your own state of physical presence as well as with the others’.
Biological coherence means that the right and left hemisphere of the brain remains connected and the neurons fire in synchrony. Imagine the state where you could employ the total mental potential focused at a single task. The individual achieves the ability to work for the desired target without any interruption with a divine devotion. If achieved, this state could create miracles.
This deepest state of silence within is very important for a stress free orderly brain functioning.
On practical front, such state could create a motive, attitude and emotion aimed at: –
- Better interpersonal understanding
- Development of common motive, attitude and emotion
- Share the common good
- Pro-social thinking
- Empathy, affiliation, friendship and acceptance
- Development of positive goals
- An altruistic attitude (Serving others and being devoted to others)
- To inspire others to develop their own positive goal
- To help others in need
The above attitude could lead to the development of complete cohesion and unison which is the ultimate aim of Yoga.
World Yoga Day should not be made a political extravaganza. It is our politician who show the profound non-cohesion among themselves. The government should be the innocent mirror of the collective consciousness of the nation.
One nation one thought is the idea which could help India acquire the status of universal yogic guru.
