|Открытый Йога Журнал|
When we are born, we have to trust this world, represented by our mother and father, our relatives, the society in which we grow, and the country where we live. Growing up, we become strong and independent, renouncing everything that, in our opinion, restricts our freedom and everyone whose opinion is in contrary to ours. Choosing the path of confidence, we choose the path of bhakti yoga.
If we join our will expression, our knowledge and our action — ichha, dzhnana and kriya, — by triple approach we will overcome ignorance!
By ignorance, yoga means our incorrect impression of ourselves. Each of us has a Higher Self, which is free, almighty and all-knowing. However, we become accustomed to believing that we are the body, the thoughts, and the emotions, by which we communicate with the world. Our manifestations are restricted and we lose the feeling of freedom and power. This ignorance can be overcome by Bhakti yoga.
