Remember the Lotus

Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.  Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.  Suzy Kassem. The lotus flower is considered a sacred symbol.  The Lotus symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, knowledge and serenity.  The lotus will fluorish in murky waters, pushing through mud and mire.  The petals break through and reach toward the sun, while the leaves stay afloat as they shine in the light.

Symbolically, lotus petals can be found in the chakra symbols.  Each chakra has a specific number of petals, representing ascending vibrational frequencies.  The state of enlightenment is represented by the thousand-petal lotus.

Six Benefits of Yogic Practice

Yoga through meditation works remarkably to achieve harmony and helps the mind work in synchronization with the body.  How often do we find that we are unable to perform our activities properly and in a satisfying manner because of the stressors and conflict in our mind that weighs so heavily upon us at times?

Stress is the number one thing which has a negative effect upon our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual systems. With the help of yoga, we can return to a state of balance and harmony.  Furthermore, on the physical level, yoga and its cleansing practices have been proven to be effective for various disorders.

Listed below are just some of the benefits that come from yogic practice.


Benefits of Yoga #1: 
Yoga is known to increase flexibility; yoga has postures that trigger the different joints of the body, including those joints that are not acted upon with regular exercises routines.

Benefits of Yoga #2: 
Yoga also increases the lubrication of joints, ligament and tendons. The well-researched yoga positions exercise the different tendons and ligaments of the body.  It has also been found that the body, even one that begins in a deteriorated rigid state, may experience quite a remarkable increased flexibility, even within parts of the body which have not been consciously worked.

Benefits of Yoga #3: 
Yoga also massages all organs of the body. Yoga is perhaps the only exercise that can work your internal organs, including those that hardly get externally stimulated during our entire lifetime.

Benefits of Yoga #4: 
Yoga acts in a gentle and wholesome manner on the various body parts.  The stimulation and massage of the organs in turn benefits us by keeping away disease, or even providing a forewarning at onset of disease or disorder. One of the far-reaching benefits of yoga is the sense of awareness that develops in the practitioner of an impending health disorder or infection.  This in turn enables the person to take pre-emptive corrective action.

Benefits of Yoga #5:
Yoga offers a complete detoxification of the body.  It gently stretches the muscles and joints as well as massaging the various organs.   Yoga ensures optimum blood supply to various parts of the body.  This helps flush out of toxins from every nook and cranny of your body, as well as provide nourishment. This leads to additional benefits such as delayed aging, increased energy and a remarkable zest for life.

Benefits of Yoga #6: 
Yoga is also an excellent way to tone your muscles.  Muscles which have been weak are stimulated repeatedly, which aids in shedding excess fats and flaccidity.

But these physical benefits are just a “side effect” of this powerful practice. What yoga does is harmonize the mind with the body.  It's no secret that the will of the mind has enabled people to achieve extraordinary physical feats, which proves beyond doubt that the mind and body are connected.


In fact yoga equals meditation, because both work together to achieve the common goal of achieving mind-body-spirit unity.  This leads to experiential bliss which can only be achieved through yogic practice. The meditative practices through yoga help achieve an emotional balance. This in turn creates a remarkable calmness and a positive outlook, which also has tremendous benefits on the physical health of the body.
