How to select the right combination of yoga
Yoga, Pranayama Meditation are integral parts of the scientific way of life. Yoga does not help improve muscles. It strengthens your internal organs, body, mind, brainpower, neural network and immunity. So, Coronavirus cannot make you prey. Select your Yoga needs as given below.
Everything depends upon your age, class (school, college, university), occupation and some other factors. But we shall discuss here the important issues for students above 10 years of age, that is, those who are entering high school and above. Before entering into the details, we must acquaint you with some important information. Keep in mind that it is the best period of life, that is, beginning with the high school. Life is determined between 10 to 25 years of age. It is true for any individual who has become successful throughout history.
We are not discussing here the geniuses, or politicians, or monarchs. We are discussing billions of young people from the middle class who are confused by purposeless, selfish and stupid surroundings everywhere in the world. Those who loiter time during this phase are doomed to lower level entrapment and lifelong failure. Organize your energy and time by any means, whatever fits you well, but remain absolutely concentrated on your aim and purpose. If you do this now, you will see at 30 years of age that you are at a higher level, while your friends and relatives are either confined to the kitchen, or frustrated and depressed, or being involved in unsocial activities. Those students of mine who have reached a higher plateau in this life, have utilized this phase very maturely, objectively rationally. To be more precise, I have suffered a lot from my village days to urban metropolis at the hands of mediocre people including relatives and wasted a large part of my positive energy. But I have never given up. My parents had always been by my side. I am posting one of the greatest quotes of all times in this context that will motivate you further. Even if nobody in your surroundings regularly practices Yoga, you have to continue on your own. You will definitely be successful.
“Where the environment is stupid or prejudiced or cruel, it is a sign of merit to be out of harmony with it. To be out of harmony with one's surroundings is of course a misfortune, but it is not always a misfortune to be avoided at all costs. ”
