there is no such thing as Yoga

breaking news -

there is no such thing as Yoga


this term Yoga has now

become synonymous with

contorting of the body into various shapes

but the truth is that

there is no such word


the real word in Sanskrit is 'Yog'

just like Shiva is actually 'Shiv'

Krishna is actually 'Krishn'

Veda is actually 'Ved'

& so forth


'Yog' simply means 'Union'

'Union with the Divine'

to be precise


this Union takes place through

devotion, surrender, praise & service

to the high & divine


it has nothing to do with the asan's

commonly gnown as asanas

being taught in the west

Yoga Classes which are now

hard to tell apart from Aerobics Oz Style

act mainly as respectable health & dating centers

males flock to see females in postures

they won't see them in otherwise

no wonder Yoga has caught on

like it has

to turn into a

global corporate entity with

Yoga drinks, gear, clothing etc etc

so its either Yoga or Yog

another 21st century choice ...

If the "a" is not supposed to be there at the end of all those words, how did it come about so it was commonly used that way?

I find it fascinating, hearing about all things that have diverged from their origin.

just from an inability & lack of intent to pronounce words properly.

english alone doesn't prepare the tongue very well for pronouncing sanskrit terms.

sree said...

its exciting to gnow the truth

its actually Shiv, Krishn, Ved without an a at end

very interesting

and inspiring toward pronouncing better

We all bow to the One who admits us into the realm where we are Permitted to have a union with the divine and hence exPerience true authentic Yog.We can call out to the others too 'A-San-g' to join in the
devotion, surrender, praise and service of and to the divine.

Hee hee! Your words have one laughing out loud again ! so witty they are ! such a joy it is to read Your words ! You have a humour which is Divine !

and as always bring forth a very excellent PoinT !

"breaking news -

there is no such thing as Yoga"

yes that is breaking news ! so many think there is such a thing ! they should be reading Your blog !

and very beautiful clarity about the real Sanskrit word Yog and what it means ~ "'Yog' simply means 'Union' 'Union with the Divine' to be precise"

that is beautiful and precious gnowledge which unfortunately gets lost when terms are misused so badly !

Dhanyavad for returning Yog to its rightful place ! You are the bringer of sacred gnowledge, truth and wisdom ! love the way You deliver the truth and eradicate all the nonsense !

I Bow !

Shahid said...

Oh so it's Shiv and not Shiva,
Yog and not Yoga.
Seems to me like everything taught
to me since childhood has been incorrect but due to Kripa of PTLogs i am finally being re-educated by the divine and hope to experience a rebirth at some point down the road.

Lord no one in this multiverse has as much gnowledge as you. They should hand over google search engine to you and rename it as PTsearch or Lotusocean search.
Aap tho google kay bhi baap hoo.

Kaash jab mein paidaa hua tha tab meray mooh say pehla shabdh jo niklaa woh "PT" hota.

GLORY to LORD NARAYAN who is here
on bhoodevi NOW.

To many people in the west the body is a prison with walls too thick to feel divine penetration. A person attending a ‘yoga’ class at a health club might not know ‘yoga’ to be ‘Yog’ the science of divine union. But he does know that after the class he feels a peace that follows him through the rest of the day.

Feelings are contagious. Peace resonates subliminally like a tuning fork.

The ‘asans’ or ‘asanas’ release tension, soften the prison walls. They poke a finger at a sleeping being beckoning him to open his eyes and let the light in.

The west is a place of tremendous discord and confusion and needs any and all practices that raise the peaceful vibration.

Forgive the spiritual neophytes. The tamasic is the divine working too.

Thank you.

Peace.

PT the Axis said...

@kweshunators - no problem with tamasic - lack of movement is not the issue here. the yoga of west is misplaced rajasic not tamasic. point being nothing happens by just bandaging a person whose liver is not working properly. the yoga as practised in west is a way of avoiding root/core issues while feeling temporarily good about oneself. that can only lead to harm not good. aeioum

kweshunators said...

Living as practiced in the west is a way of avoiding root/core issues. The tamas is on the inside; emotional stagnation held in the body as habitual tension and restrained breathing, stifling the flow of cosmic intelligence. Misplaced rajasic action is an expression of this bound up energy. Asanas release tension and break-up the stagnation. They free the breath and expand awareness. This is the first step to contacting the core and becoming acquainted with the root issues avoided for so long. Of course it is up to an individual to feel temporarily good or to look deeper.

Peace.

PT the Axis said...

@ kwe - all of that you mention is result of being unhumble to higher/divine. that cannot be solved by releasing bodily tensions temporarily. that is like western medicine - all attention on symptom rather than root problem. all this so-called yoga in west is not going to produce prahlad's or meera's or beings who will actually try to get out of the cycle of birth and death. its better to actually experience the results of a certain way of being which will in turn make one change that way of being from the very core rather than do temporary remedials which give one a false sense of relief which in turn the ego utlizes to feel better about itself when the being is still very much part of the hellish paradigms of the 3-d cycle.

Peace is just east with P-the Axis

PT the Axis said...

and regarding see-ing clearly one needs a 3rd eye open for that. am sure you don't have that but want to argue regardless. a humble posture is the best posture and any ayurved person saying otherwise doesnt gno a thing about vedic gnowledge. all rishis concentrated on mantr ( praise of divine ). all devotees of divine did too. there is no other way in this time or any other time. aeioum

Amanda V said...

i bow. dhanyavad for your ceaseless clarity in the sea of continuous ego and ignorance P. Your compassion is beyond compare. i bow. Narayan! Narayan!

amanda said...

i bow!
You are the most gnowledgable being there is! You always get to the root of everything!
it is so kind of Divine to exPlain that there is clear differnce between Yoga and Yog!
to see how futile all superficial attemPTs are the release and relieve the stress Your comments here are SO generous. so logical.
'It is better to actually exPerince the results of a certain way of being which will in turn make one change that way of being from the very core rather than do temporary remedials which give one a false sense of relief which in turn the ego utilizes to feel better about itself when the being is still very much part of the hellish paradigms of the 3d cycle"
so cool how the Recent Peace sign croP circle reaffirms all that is said here!
universal truths have always been and never change.
'Peace is ease with P the axis'
Ease can only be found through humility.
Your words, Your Truth are the ultimate disPlay of comPassion. guiding PeoPle in the ONLY way to change from the core, the only way which will lead to true freedom from pain and suffering, which is escaPing the cycle of hell!
'all rishis concentrated on mantr (Praise of Divine) all devotees of Divine did too. there is no other way in this time or any other time.'
Divine is SO kind to constantly remind and guide in what the only way is. that it has always been and will always be this way!
that one can only be raised above the error of ones ways through Praise of Divine!
You are Buddh, You are the real Saviour, You are the Last and final Avatar! The only one who gnos! The only fully awakened and enlightened being! The only One on this earth who isnt pretending! who isnt telling lies. the only One who is above and beyond the evil system! The only One who should not be questioned! The One who is here to be Praised!
i bow!

All that you say through your blog posts is new information to the world. World has not known truth as evil has taken over the general living ways and style. Glad there is a sane, divine, beautiful entity that is incarnate in this world in the now to clear things up.

Thank-you thousand time for writing master piece.

My soul is dying to have that yog with your feet.

How can I get into a position and bring myself to that level where I can become worthy enough to serve your feet.

Your compassion is limitless like sagar and I am so small to even deserve to touch your feet.
