The word “Yoga” gets its derivation from the Sanskrit word “yuj” meaning unity or oneness, implying that it is the unity or merger of the consciousness of the individual with the universe.
Yoga and Meditation are a way of life for the MVM, aiming to build a healthy mind, body and soul. It involves a broad range of practices, including meditation, contemplation, prayer and mantra, as well as the preparatory practices leading up to these. Yoga & Meditation also explore all of the levels of reality and self-construction, including the gross (vaishvanara), subtle (taijasa), causal (prajna) and the absolute (turiya), as reflected in the OM Mantra. Finally, Yoga & Meditation lead one to the direct experience of the absolute, pure and eternal centre of consciousness.
