Primary Yogasana (Yoga Postures)
The Physical techniques of Yoga are the stepping stones to meditation. According to Patanjali, Yoga is the cessation of the modifications of the mind.
In the beginning the primary prerequisite to peace of mind is posture. Yogasana practiced to gain steady posture, health and lightness in the body. All Yoga postures are intended to directly or indirectly quiet the mind. The majority of Asana have been devised to build up different parts of the body and to develop the strength required by the more advanced Physical disciplines. The purpose of the yogasana is to recondition the system, both mind and body, and to develop the nervous and glandular systems. The different Yoga postures have been devised to bring a rich supply of blood to the brain and to the various parts of the spinal column. The yogasana work by stretching, bending and twisting the spinal column in different directions to promote the health of the nerves. When the body is purified, Prana (vital energy) can be conserved and the individual becomes healthy and conscious. << More>>

"Sanyasa is not a thing to be received from or given to anybody. It is a dedication of our entire being to the Lord and His Service. It is a spontaneous wave of aspiration rising from within your own heart." -Papa Ramdas
"You must literally live renunciation. This is the way of all attainment. This is the key to true and lasting happiness and peace. This is the secret of world-welfare and universal happiness. In renunciation lies the end of all strife and hatred. In renunciation lies the source of true peace and progress. Renunciation is the path that leads to friendliness, co-operation and unity. Renounce selfishness, greed, hatred and egoism. Embrace love, humility, contentment and charity." - Swami Chidananda
" Renunciation is getting rid of egoism, desires and
cravings. When all the desires are annihilated, then this
very mortal becomes Immortal. Cultivate dispassion and
discrimination and quench the fire of desire. Renounce
desires and cravings, be ever blissful. Nothing except
renunciation can give you Moksha".- Swami Sivananda
