FOR PEACE AND WELL BEING...
Yoga is the science of restraining the mind from breaking into modifications.Mind is a mixture of sensation and feelings , or action and reaction , so it can not be permanent.The mind has a fine body and through this it works on the gross body .Vedanta says that behind the mind is the real self.-----------------Swami Vivekananda

merging innermost being in the stream of humanity as a whole...
• Sri Yukteswar used to poke gentle fun at the commonly inadequate conceptions of renunciation.
"A beggar cannot renounce wealth," Master would say. "If a man laments: 'My business has failed; my wife has left me; I will renounce all and enter a monastery,' to what worldly sacrifice is he referring? He did not renounce wealth and love; they renounced him!"
Saints like Gandhi, on the other hand, have made not only tangible material sacrifices, but also the more difficult renunciation of selfish motive and private goal, merging their inmost being in the stream of humanity as a whole.
