What is Yog ?

 

The word ‘Yog’ has originated from the sanskrit word ‘Yuj’ which means union of mind, body and soul. According to Maharishi Patanjali who collated the information about Yog sometime between 50 to 250 BC gives the definition of yog as “Yogah chitta vritti nirodhah”.

There is a mention of yog in the sixth chapter of the Bhagwad Geeta, where lord Krishna talks of uniting individual consciousness with ultimate consciousness.
