Namaste & Welcome to Sakha Yoga my beloved friend,
I am Yogi Sakha and I want to share with you the secrets behind authentic Yoga for Optimum health & happiness using the Evolutionary, Brain & Yogic Science.
In my 18 years of conscious spiritual living I have been working to understand and integrate the fundamentals of modern science and yogic science. I believe my scientific background and open temperament helped me to explore and unravel both the material and spiritual science.
Sakha Yoga is a result of my joyous and amazing love affair with life and the Universe.
Friend or Foe, Treat or Threat?
In Sanatan Dharma or Yogic Science, the theory of evolution is not a seen as a blasphemy, rather beautifully depicted through the concept of Avtars. Human beings evolved from fish forms into their current human form due to billions of years of evolutionary process.
During these billions of years, the human form got adapted to walk on two legs with erect spine, developed a largest thinking brain, formed societies, cultures, invented machines, technology etc. One could have never imagined 100 years back the quantity and quality of luxury, comfort and security we human beings are enjoying now.
Though we have made tremendous progress in the material world by mastering the elements of Nature, yet ironically, number of people suffering from mental illness, loneliness and lifestyle diseases has also shown steep increase!!
This is because we have not taken efforts and time to work on our brain and help it evolve and keep pace with external progress.
You see, the untrained and uncultured human brain still perceives and experiences life with a primitive Stone age mentality as if we are under constant threat and lacking resources. This survival mentality is biologically wired in the brain and nervous system of all animals including human beings, however in us it manifests in ugliest ways like strong sense of isolated individuality, instant pleasure seeking, reactive compulsive behavior, addictions, insatiable greed, violence, adultery, war, etc.
Thus the very asset which we have, the brain, which defines us as human beings and help us make unbelievable material progress, has become an enemy, a foe for most people.
The Science of Yoga is all about working on and working with our brain as a friend where we commit to understand the workings of our inner world, the purpose of human brain-body evolution. More so, we help us find our true Self and invoke our latent potentials to truly make the experience of being human fulfilling, meaningful and cherishing.
That's why Sakha Yoga- Sakha means a true and intimate friend, where you are in a friendly relationship with your own body, mind and humanity to explore and understand what it truly means to be a human.
Our Cultural Heritage
When we work on our brain (mind) to raise and evolve our humanity with sincere honesty & responsibility, it brings welfare to all beings in a creative and spontaneous way. This new way of relating with our own self (mind body spirit) is the beginning of Yoga, which is mentioned even in Bhagwad Geeta as-
"Elevate yourself through the power of your mind and not degrade yourself, for the mind can be the friend and also the enemy of the self. " BG Ch 6, Vs 5
The ancient Yogis and seers were very practical and scientific in their approach towards life and that's why the basis of our civilization is called as Vedic and we are called as Bharatiya. Ved means knowledge, both of the Self and the world, and Bha in Bharat means light and Rath means carrier/chariot. So Bharat means a land where people are guided by knowledge and wisdom and not by ignorance and sub human instincts.
Surprisingly our species is called as Homo Sapiens, in which sapiens means wise and discerning, a feature attributed to our unique big thinking brain which can discern and reign our natural urges and instincts!
That's why our culture has a Universal appeal and vision, because its focus is on freeing humanity and human potentials from bondage of base natural instincts, selfish desires, and fanatic social and religious dogmas & beliefs despite of ones gender, nationality, caste, creed, race or religion.
There are very few forms of modern Yoga schools or practices which are able to fully grasp and share the true Science of Yoga which was understood and demonstrated by seers and yogis in the past.
De-Coding the Lost Yogic Science
In Geeta Lord Krishna mentions that-
"This science of Yoga was received through the lineage of ancestral generations, and the saintly kings understood it in that way. But in course of time the succession was broken, and therefore this form of Yoga was lost. " BG Ch 4 , Vs 2
The kind of Yoga Lord Krishna was talking about is exactly what I am here to share with you through Sakha Yoga, but in a modern and conventional parlance. The fundamentals or principles never change, only the way they are taught and express must change based on current circumstances. The ultimate aim of Yoga and of humanity was, is and always will be to free our self from limited body and individual soul consciousness, and make us realise the Universal Self/Oneness behind all appearances!!
As mentioned in Geeta Ch 15 Vs 5
"Those who are free from vanity and delusion, who have overcome the fault of wrong identification, who always see themselves in others, who are freed from the desire to indulge, and are beyond the duality of pleasure and pain, only such liberated ones attain to the transcendental state. "
We are born out of Ecstasy to experience Ecstasy
Legacy of Ecstasy is an initiation process for those who want to start and establish a loving, joyful and friendly relationship with one's body-mind and manifest its abundant, joyful and creative nature! The initiation in Legacy of Ecstasy will give you fundamental understanding about why human body is evolved to experience and express only joy, love and creativity. You will understand why being joyful is the only solution to every human challenge and suffering, most of which is only our mental projection. The initiation to Legacy of Ecstasy is absolutely free and its duration is for 60-75 minutes.
Ecstasy is made from two Greek words, ek which means out and histani means to stand or to place. So ecstasy literally means to stand out of one's self, a self which is based in lack, doubts, prejudice, negativity, selfishness, and perceived to be real and isolated from others. What we call as happiness, experience requires body, brain and senses (Apara/Material energy) and is based on some object of experience, whether food, sex, relation,sports, work or even God! But the happiness of our being requires no apparatus of mind body and is always known and available to us (Para Shakti). This ever present joy of our being is called as Ananda and requires right way of thinking to abide and manifest it in our day to day living.
Spiritually speaking, Human beings have evolved only to know the Self, existence and joy beyond physicality. Thus knowing our immortal and blissful nature there remains nothing more to be known or nothing more to be done for personal sake. All struggle and suffering is because we have not found our true Self, which is the source of all joy and not explored our humanity and purpose in sincere and scientific way!
Bhagwad Geeta Ch 7 Vs 2
"I shall now reveal unto you fully this knowledge and wisdom, knowing which nothing else remains to be known in this world."
peace love joy blessings,
