A 16-lesson course on Yoga created by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is now available worldwide. In an article on the US Transcendental Meditation website, Dr Robert Roth, National Director of Expansion in United States for the Global Country of World Peace, presents Maharishi's comments on the complete understanding of Yoga: Maharishi explains that Yoga means living unified wholeness in the field of diversity.
In his blog post, which also contains a short video of Maharishi speaking about Yoga, Dr Roth explains that Maharishi's comments were made during an international news conference in 2007 from Maharishi European Research University in Holland. Maharishi answered a question from a reporter on the widespread practice of physical yoga postures, which has become a trend throughout the world. The reporter asked Maharishi's advice for people who practice this physical form of yoga.
''Yoga means 'unity'—it means living unified wholeness in the field of diversity,'' Maharishi said. ''My advice is to continue practicing Yoga on the physical level—but also to start and continue to practice Yoga on all other levels—mental, intellectual, and on the level of self-referral, Transcendental Consciousness. On all levels, Yoga will help you to progress in every way, in every field of life.''
Maharishi explained that Transcendental Meditation is Yoga. ''I had to give it a new name—Transcendental Meditation—because I felt Yoga has been commonly misunderstood in terms of the physical level alone.''
Maharishi said that a great truth of Yoga is that ''Yoga is superior action.''
''When you want a superior quality of action, then you should practice Yoga on all levels,'' Maharishi said. ''Yoga is a good word, but it should be properly understood and practiced beyond the physical level. The result will be a rapid, holistic evolution of life.''
