What You need to know about Yoga


On June 21st 2016 International Day of Yoga, H.H. Paramahamsa Nithyananda addressed the world by sharing sacred secrets on the true Origins of Yoga. Here is what you have never been told, but need to know about Yoga:

1) Yoga is from Sadashiva

This first thing you need to know is that Yoga did not originate from Patanjali. “Patanjali is the organizer, not originator. That’s the first thing you need to know”, said Paramahamsa Nithyananda.

Swamiji explained, “With all my respects to Patanjali, I want to declare this truth to the world: at least 15, 000 years before Patanjali, a Being walked on the Planet Earth, assuming the physical form, Adi Guru, Sadashiva, the Founder and Father of the Yoga system.

Patanjali Yoga Sutras is a great book, no doubt, but not the first book.  Unfortunately, many popular yoga gurus all over the world, always stop with Patanjali. Very few say yoga was before Patanjali, and even if they say, they’re not able to present the scriptures and literature.

All the revelations of Shiva are called Agamas, the complete work of Shiva, where he presents detailed, elaborate material with high quality precision.

People are very comfortable having Patanjali as the originator of yoga because Patanjali can be secularized, but not Sadashiva. But it’s time for the world to know and understand that Yoga is rooted in Sanatana Hindu Dharma.

2) Yoga is from Hinduism

The second important truth is that yoga is from Hinduism.

Always ask for the original source. It is unfortunate that the original scriptures revealed by Sadashiva are not available for the mass. It is unfortunate nobody promoted that. Because it is very easy to secularize Patanjali; very difficult to secularize Sadashiva.

We need to understand that Yoga cannot be developed and cannot be separated from Hinduism. It is a perfect system that was revealed by Sadashiva and further organized by living enlightened masters, disciples of Shiva over thousands of years, with a clear purpose, an intention.

You cannot develop on Sadashiva. Yoga is a complete science that has taken into account all types of bodies past, present and yet to come in the future. Altering Yoga is not development but dilution.

The secular world has diluted a great science that we are yet to discover and reveal to the masses. But first understand, if you have practiced something in the name of yoga, ask your teacher for the clear reference. Where did this technique come from? Always as for the source. Only then you should even consider practicing these techniques safely.

3) Yoga is the science of radiating enlightenment

The third important truth is that Yoga is not just the science of keeping you healthy, Yoga is the science of radiating enlightenment.

Yoga is not just the ability to stretch your body. It is ability to manifest what you want. Yoga is not all about making you better man. Yoga is all about making you Superman.

The best that can happen to you on the path of yoga is getting rid of all self-doubt, self-hatred and self-denial, the root cause of all incompletions. Paramahamsa Nithyananda actively teaches the science of completing with these, collectively called SDHD, discarding all mental patterns that limit us from living to our highest potential.

Yoga is the ultimate merging the individual consciousness with the Cosmic Consciousness. It is designed to experience Oneness, Advaita, and express all the mystical powers outlined by Sadashiva. As long as we carry inadequate, immature cognitions about ourselves, about life, others, God, world, we continue to feel separate from the whole. When we complete with all our limited cognition and discover our true Self, Yoga happens.


Seeking the source

The VedaAgamas are the Source books of Hinduism or Sanatana Hindu Dharma, and these are the Source of YOGA.

The revelation from the Veda-Agamas form the Shāstra Pramaṇa, the scriptural authority on truth, which came down directly from the mouth of Bhagavān Sadāshiva to His consort Devi Adishakti.

Paramahamsa Nithyananda reveals, “Vedas are the ultimate, superior authority for the Hindus. Vedas are like a pure science, where the ultimate truths are explained, but Agamas are the scriptures where the applied technology, the applied science is expanded. all the Hindu bodies accept Vedas and Agamas as Shruti [that which is heard] and everything else follows as Smritis [the remembered scriptures]. Agamas are directly revealed by Sadashiva; they are more like a practical manual of how to, what to, where to, when to. All these details are answered with the right context, giving enough of understanding and I should say, in a more sympathetic, compassionate way, with a lot of concern for human beings with tremendous user-friendliness.”
