YOGASON’S  OBJECTIVE

                                                                        ITALIANO 

 

 

The world is real; individual selves living in this world have self-consciousness, self-determination and freedom of will. As such the world is no illusion. If the world is not real and it is an illusion only, then the individual selves would have been otherwise. As conscious beings, we act voluntarily.

 

But does it mean that as we have free will, we can do whatever we wish?

The answer is 'no'. Why? Because, we have SELF-DETERMINATION.

 

Here comes the  most important feature of Indian Philosophy, i.e. SELF CONTROL

The most striking and fundamental aspect of Indian Philosophy is that the Indians regard philosophy as a practical necessity and cultivate it in order to understand how life can be best led.  Indian philosophical wisdom is not merely the satisfaction of intellectual curiosity, but mainly an enlightened life, how it can serve human ends, not by encouraging selfishness but by utilitarian actions.

 

It follows from all these features that individuals should act in such a way that they can always rise above their “actual self”.  The actual self is mostly selfish; we have feelings and desires (namely cravings, aggression, delusion, greed, jealousy, etc.) which are detrimental to both our physical and our mental health.

 

As all individuals have aspiration to transcend their “actual life”, they have to control their behaviours. If we try to overcome the detrimental feelings and desires with determination, we will discover a new life, new existence.  Each time we win over our selfishness, we will feel as if we are reborn.  When we get over all the detrimental feelings and desires, we will liberate ourselves from all worldly sufferings.  

 

THE ABOVE IS MY INTERPRETATION OF REBIRTH, THE ABOVE IS MY INTERPRETATION OF REBIRTH, 

WHICH CAN OCCURWHICH CAN OCCUR A MILLION TIMES IN THIS VERY PRESENT LIFE.

 

We can control the flow of our thoughts by disciplining our mind. The methods that the Vedic Indians thousands of years ago suggested, are simple and still valid, especially in this stressful modern world.  The suggested methods are valid irrespective of any dogma, creed, race or religion. But we do need the awareness of this philosophy of YOGA.

 

YOGASON's objective is to

Create this awareness and discuss the psychophysical aspect of Yoga Philosophy

 

and 

 

Teach the methods to

 

Strengthen the body and the mind in order to 

Overcome the ill-effects of daily stress, 

Counteract physical and mental fatigue and 

Attain peace with our own selves in this tense, 

stressful, mechanical and selfish modern life.
