The Final Four – Yoga Limbs 5 thru 8

This concludes the series 8 Limbs of Yog

In brief summary, we have discussed the goal of Yoga, which is to unite one’s transitory (temporary) self, “JIVA” with the infinite “BRAHMAN”, the Hindu concept of God. This God is not a personal God, but it is an impersonal spiritual substance which is one with nature and cosmos. Brahman is an impersonal divine substance that “pervades, envelopes and underlies everything”. Yoga comes to yogi who is one with Brahman”
The last two limbs are considered the results of the first six. To recap, limbs one and two are Darhmic practices we do each day. All the steps 1 through 6 prepare for the arrival at 7 and 8 which are something one achieves, not something one just happens to do.
