When a man is under the control of senses, He is of the world. When he has controlled the senses the world is of himSwami Vivekananda
Human beings are emotional creatures. We are directed by our senses of touch, smell, taste, sight and speech. Our inner and outer environment is made up of the mastery of these senses. Few among us become slaves of the senses and few master the senses to lead their life physically and emotionally fit.
Balancing the senses for self-awakening is the goal of every individual and it’s possible only through controlling the temptation of our taste buds, equalising the pleasure of binge-watching and so much extra effort by mind and body for a holistic life.
The Technique to master the senses
The action of the human mind and body complement each other. When one is strong, the other automatically becomes fit. In order, to have a balanced state of mind, unshaken by the distractions and desires of the world, Gurus and Experts have chosen Yoga as a Path of Calmness for physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.”Bhagwat Gita
3 crucial Lifestyle Yoga Recommendations as per the Holy book Bhagwat Gita
Yoga is done by every individual to attain enlightenment of self. Mastering the senses can be made easy by following the given recommended Yoga advocated by the ancient scripture Gita
1)Karma Yoga –
This form of Yog is a Path of Duty or Action. Practicalities are a part of life. Any individual cannot be free from the bondage of their responsibility. The karma that is performed with the selfless attitude of non-attainment of any rewards and attaining peace builds a spirit and set aside an individual from the burden of greed and ego.
2) Bhakti Yoga –
This form is considered the easiest one as it means a feeling of being one with the Lord in daily life by way of Music, Reading religious Stories, Remembrance by Thinking of the universe and experiencing one with him. The practice of this form frees an individual from the tensions of the world and surrenders himself by the belief that everything is good and is done for a purpose.
3) Jnana Yoga –
Jnana Yog is the Path of Knowledge. The knowledge of Self Realisation. The jnana obtained considers everybody as one, as equal ,unbounds us from ignorance and takes us to place of balance and harmony to the way of Wisdom. The practice of this Yoga in life eliminates inequality of caste, creed, and colour and matures us to respect Humanity and liberates us from the illusions of self-limiting thoughts, beliefs and perceptions.
Yoga is not a religion. It is a science, science of well-being, the science of youthfulness, and the science of integrating body, mind and soul.
