Yoga

The word "yoga" means yoke. It implies being yoked or harnessed with God, brought into harmony with the Divine. Yoga is one of the six primary systems of orthodox thought in Indian philosophy. It is focused, first, on freeing the aspirant from the illusion and ignorance that characterizes this earthly realm, and second, on enabling the seeker, through various self-disciplines, to achieve oneness with the Divine. There are many types of yoga, such as: Hatha Yoga (the path of physical disciplines), Karma Yoga (the path of selfless action), Bhakti Yoga (the path of devotion to an individual god), Jnana Yoga (the path of trans-cendental knowledge), Mantra Yoga (the path of chanting mantras to achieve enlightenment) and others. Primary sacred texts are the Yoga sutras written by Patanjali (c. 200 BC).
