Understanding the science of yoga in Indian society: A review paper
AUTHOR(S): Rajesh Kumar Verma and Dr. Sanjit Sardar
Yoga is an in-depth, holistic improvement and science of controlling the thoughts, thus it is the only science that deals simultaneously with all aspects of the philosophy, psychology and practicality of conscious evolution. While modern science tends to look outward through an experimental model, the science of yoga enables us to search the depths of our own self, thus realizing the ultimate truth through an experiential model. This body of knowledge gained through intense, systematic, introverted investigation into the workings of the human mind has been handed down from master to disciple through millennia. This paper discusses the different methods and characteristic of science and finds that all of them have equivalents in yoga. The tools and technology of yoga are discussed along with important aspects of the integration of yoga and modern scientific medicines. It is suggested that a two-way integration of the experimentally tempered modern science with the experiential science of yoga can lead us to many answers for challenges plaguing modern humankind such as debilitating chronic illnesses related to aging, environment, and hedonistic lifestyle within youths. Modern medical advancements provide the rationale for the integration of various traditional healing techniques including yoga to promote healing, health and longevity. It is imperative that advances in medicine include the holistic approach of yoga to face the current challenges in health care. The antiquity of yoga must be united with the innovations of modern medicine to improve quality of life throughout the Nation.
