Yoga teaches us that there is another potential of the mind, an inner movement that extends our awareness beyond our human frontiers to the cosmic. The aim of Yoga is to discern the eternal essence of consciousness from the changing outer names, forms and quantities of the external world.
Yoga consists not merely of an intellectual examination but a profound meditative inquiry. Yoga is correlated with samadhi, the ultimate stage of Yoga practice. Samadhi is the state of unity consciousness in which the mind’s agitation is put to rest, and comes to function like a mirror to reflect the truth of reality.
