"Yoga" and "Meditation" have become the most popular sciences for curing Physical, Mental and Emotional Illness and also for achieving Spiritual Strength. There are many misconceptions about what actually Yoga is. Some say that it is some form of Gymnastics, some treat it as physical exercise while others feel that it is a display of various difficult postures.

The process by which the Individual Self unites with the Supreme Self is known as Yoga. The purpose of Yogic Practices is to destroy the impurities of the mind and acquire physical practices for ultimately attaining self Realizing. "Meditation" means to "Reflect Upon". This happens when the mind is concentrated on a particular activity or object over an elongated period of time.
There are four principle forms of Yoga :
Uniting with the Supreme Self through "Work"
Uniting with the Supreme Self through "Knowledge"
Uniting with the Supreme Self through "Devotion"
Uniting with the Supreme Self through "Psychic Control"
