What is Mind-Yoga?

A situation itself how hard ever is never stressfull.
Whether we handle a stressfull situation in a good way, with less stress or not
that depends on how we perceive and react to a situation.
~~~~~~~~
A person reacts on any situation according his/her PERSONALITY- THE MIND.
a good Personality of a person consists of
1) purity of mind
2) strength of mind and balanced mind
3) -self-confidence
4) -positive thoughts
Strong, Pure, Positive Happy, Balanced mind is made by the practice of Yoga.
What is Yoga?
Yoga consists of a number of practical exercises for the Mind.
Therefore Yoga is called also Mind-Yoga.
Yoga is a more practical knowledge than theroretical knowledge.
Aim of Yoga is first to make mind strong, balanced, and happy,
and to increase the concentration of the mind. Because only with a strong and pure mind
spiritual practice can be done.

~~~~~~~~~~
The 3 steps of meditation which lead finally to Mukti/salvation are according patanjali,

1) Pratyahara, 2) Dharana, and 3) Samadhi,
These 3 steps are only possible by making first the Mind strong, balcanced, pure and positive.

1)-pratyahara: means directing attention of mind inside, by fixing it to some object as a mantra, a picture, a candle. The goal is to still the mind.
2)-dharana: means concentration of mind to inside, uninterrupted meditation without an object
3) samadhi:means a deep state of meditation which enters in divine bliss, or a state of Union with God Divine, and in end Mukti-salvation.

~~~~~~~~~~
Without a strong, balanced and Happy mind a person cannot attain:
- concentration in meditation
- a person cannot practice karma-Yoga which is duty of a person born in this world
- a person cannot stand constantly his her spiritual practice
- without a balanced mind, not even mantra can be practices successfully.
- a person cannot reach the 3 steps of Meditation (pratyahara, dharana, samadhi)
BECAUSE ALL THIS, THE MIND IS A VERY ESSENTIAL TOOL IN PRACTICE OF YOGA;
IN REACHING SALVATION AND MUKTI.

~~~~~~~~
