YOGA FOR MODERN AGE is a guide to Simplified Kundalini Yoga that is taught by the World Community Service Centre, India and SKY Meditation Centers across the world.
Wisdom leads to harmony in life. Wisdom is a state of awareness that is uncontaminated and reflects a pure state of clarity in thought, word and deed. The SKY (Simplified Kundalini Yoga) system provides a holistic solution to realize this state.
The three major milestones to a spiritual journey are faith, understanding and realization. Humans as a generation have evolved beyond faith and are currently in a state of mind that seeks understanding to satisfy their scientifically evolved mind. This appetite can only be satisfied by uncontaminated truth that is spoken in a scientific language in accordance with the relevancy of our time.
In this respect the SKY system has a concise and scientific explanation of key truths such as Energy, Mind and the Non-dual divinity that is we. These truths when understood give us a sense of satisfaction and peace that is ecstatic in nature and also serve as an unerring guiding principle that helps us enjoy this great life.
But the emotional mind and a weak body cannot understand these truths as it is constantly losing energy due to its physical or mental dis-ease. To overcome this malady the body and mind should be strengthened using a systematic practice of physical exercises and meditation. Shri Vethathiri Maharishi's Simplified Physical Exercise trains one's body to be healthy and regulates energy flow. His Kayakalpa Yoga helps one strengthen the life energy and achieve an intensified energy level of body and mind. His Simplified Kundalini Meditation helps one to train the mind in a lower frequency so as to achieve a consistent state of higher awareness. This state of awareness characterizes what is commonly called as will power. This position of strength enables one to think out of the box and be creative (create new better habits). It also gives one the ability to change ways and transform one's character or personality. This transformation is more effectively guided by the Introspection Techniques that are explained in this book. With consistent practice the mind can be disciplined and transformed to eliminate negative emotions and filled with positivity.
The mind of a person that has achieved such a state is very light and pure. It does not have emotions that agitate the mind and sap the mental energy. In this state the mental frequency is low and the mental wave's length is near infinite. As a result the boundary of the mind has increased. It can imagine/expand to the breadth of the universe and beyond, stay there, think from such a broad state and understand the secrets of this universe and eternity as intuition (inner tuition / self taught).
Such a person is also characterized by high energy levels experienced as ecstasy, for it has tapped into the universal energy. Such high energy levels would immediately be spent by an emotional mind in materialistic pleasures. But for a mind that has understanding of the truth it will be guided in the path of service characterized by Love and Compassion, which happens to be the way of God. This is true worship and a spiritual way of life that is in spirit with nature. As the mind starts flowing in the same path as its original (primordial) state, it starts remembering what it really is. It realizes itself to be the same non-dual state that permeates everything as consciousness and manifest as all the happenings in the universe. This process can be described as totality becoming fractional and then realizing its totality thereby appreciating its own greatness.
This realization of the divine state of play is Wisdom aka Self Realization and is what can be achieved with the help of SKY practices this book seeks to enlighten the reader on.
