Since the time immemorial human being has been searching for the better way to live life. As the human civilization began to germinate in a very initial phase of its conception, it had been developed with the sheer hope to make the life-style and living standard better and happier. On the search of a way of happiness, they discover the divine art of yoga and meditation.

The perennial search of being happy has also been question and quest of the highly modern world even today. The world already has seen the people landed into the place called Moon which is supposed to be the God in many traditions and culture including Hinduism. The level of development and availability of the comfort is likely to touch the sky. There are very few things which human being has not been able to find out or sort out such as to stop the death. In spite of being successful in its supreme state, one thing that has not left human being for its pursuit that is ‘happiness’.

Almost whole life has been invested for the sake of being the success and making a lot of money disregarding the health, happiness and wellness. When one is supposed to have a successful life with its prime traits, one finds own situation pathetic and problematic in every way from physical health, mental health, to familial and social life. Definitely, the idea of being successful and the dream to achieve great in life never be wrong. However, the expedition made for the better life has to be incorporated with the quintessential ingredients one has to combine with its complete aspects.

There is nothing whole or complete in itself without being relative to others. It’s sure and certain that only happiness can’t be realized or felt. In search of better life, happiness also has to be included. In the world, numerous schools of philosophy have come into existence. One of them is Yoga.

Nepal Yoga Teacher training and retreat center (Yoga Shala) always approves the idea of yoga that it is an integral part of our life. It only becomes integral in a practical sense only when we realize and feel it has been flourishing and fructifying the flowers of our life. Unless and until one feels taste and flavor of the Yoga, it sounds hypocritical and hypothetical that yoga blesses the beauty in life. If one doesn’t feel any such positivity in life by applying the yogic path, it denotes the very fact that either the path has not been properly followed or the pedestrian of the yogic journey has not pursued the right path.

The mesmerizing magnanimity of the yoga always multiplies the melody and moments of happiness. Indeed, yoga is not for the very purpose of happiness. It ultimately strives to be in the state of equanimity. It always accepts the state of duality and approves that there is sadness if there is happiness. Nevertheless, the thing or point to be realized is to be aware and observer of the situation implanting the yogic abilities.

Yoga and meditation offer you the skills to achieve optimum physical, mental, spiritual health and a balance. Yoga brings a calm peacefulness and focuses improving your capacity to integrate body and mind. You’ll find a strengthening of personal relationships and a way to achieve your life goals.
