True Essence of Yoga

O Learned and Devoted Servants of God,

[Novermber 19, 2003] Imaginary Chakras & Lotus flowers: Yoga is the most prestigious field of spiritualism. People think about 6 wheels (Chakras) or lotus flowers present in the spinal card, which are not seen by the eyes. They are imaginary and so they carry some inner meaning. When you say a face as a moon, fools search for moon in that face. But, wise people see similarity in the face and moon. Similarly, wheels and lotus flowers should not be searched in the spinal card. Spinal card is the main nerve, representing mind, which is the base of love. All these wheels or lotus flowers are the bonds of love in the various relatives like parents, wife or husband, children etc. They are compared to wheels or the revolving whirlpools in the ocean, which attract a swimmer and drown him. Similarly, these love wheels are compared to lotus flowers, since the lotus flowers attract the bee by sweet fragrance and bind it. Similarly, these love flowers attract any one and bind them. 'Kundalini' is the mind which is the energy traveling as waves like a serpent, should cross all these love wheels connected to 7th lotus flower in the head called 'Sahasrara', which is Buddhi or intelligence that takes the decision, which is the firm love on God.

The Bhagavat Gita is called as the main scripture of yoga (yoga-sastra). Why there is not even single reference to these wheels or lotus flowers in anywhere in the Gita or even in Upanishads? Since they are not real, they are not even mentioned. The author of the Gita is Krishna, who is called Master of yoga (Yogeswara). Krishna also says that the real yoga was lost since long (Sa kaleneha mahata...). This means that in the beginning, Sages in India knew the real yoga and loved God only crossing all their family bonds. In due course of time only, this true yoga was lost. Why? The middle age Indians were unable to cross their family bonds and so failed to succeed in yoga. They wanted to cover their in ability by twisting the very concept of yoga. The family bonds were removed from the concept and only wheels or lotus flowers are left fixed.
