Practice yoga for health, spiritual peace, and enlightenment. You are a yogi or yogini if you practice yoga for health, beauty, strength, relaxation or healing. You are a yogi or yogi, if you practice yoga for the spiritual world, happiness and enlightenment. You are a yogi or yogi, if you are enlightened. Enlightenment means living in God, in the light, in the cosmic consciousness. Be a theist or atheist. In modern yoga, your religion is your right. Yoga teaches the unity of all religions. You can be a yogi and a Hindu, a Christian, a Muslim, a Buddhist or an atheist. An atheist can be a yogi if he or she wants to achieve inner peace and happiness. You can be a Christian yogi if you want. The most important Christian yogis were the Fathers and Desert Mothers. Their enlightened master was Anthony the Great. Practice yoga, meditation and positive thinking. The three most important yoga books are the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, the Hatha Yoga Pradipika Goraksha, and the Bhagavad Gita from Krishna. Therefore, the main techniques of yoga are: positive thinking (Patanjali), meditation (Patanjali), working with the body (Goraksha), prayer (Krishna) and love for all things (Krishna). Study the five main distinguishing features: truth, peace, love, self-discipline and happiness. Important modern yoga masters are Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Jaggi Vasudev, Swami Sivananda, Sri Anandamayi Ma, Sathya Sai Baba, Mata Amritanandamayi, and Mother Miyira. They teach the main distinguishing features. Pass the initiation. It is a good idea to go through the initiation with an enlightened master. He or she will open the door to your enlightenment energy (kundalini energy). However, be aware that you must practice and realize your enlightenment yourself. And to have patience – enlightenment will come when you are ready. Cleanse yourself and become happy. Spiritually, human beings can be compared with a bow. Stress and conflict should be resolved layer by layer. When one layer is peeled off, the next quickly appears on the surface, and so on until the inner core is opened. At this moment, constant inner joy will be found, and the yogi or yogi will live in the light (despite the reality that there is still much to be done).
