Yoga in Himalayas


Himalayas Hills, HimalayaCountryWide Tours and Travels is engaged in the promotion of tourism in Garhwal Himalayas. Garhwal Himalayas is described as the “Abode of Gods” as the sacred shrines of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, Yamunotri and Hemkund Sahib lie here apart from the sources of sacred rivers Ganga and Yamuna.
Skanda Purana, our ancient text, records- “In a hundred ages of the Gods I could not tell the glories of the Himalayas. As the dew is dried up by the morning sun, so are the sins of mankind by the sight of the Himalayas”.

It is natural that pilgrims from India and abroad throng to pay obeisance to the deities. Here Vedas are chanted and the glacial valleys reverberate with prayers as the pilgrims share their faith with each other.
There are three different kinds of pilgrimages, each consisting of five sacred spots. Panch Badri consists of five shrines raised to Lord Vishnu. b. Panch Kedar pays homage to Lord Shiva. c. Panch Prayag consists of the five confluences of the holy rivers.

The word yoga, in Hindi pronounced as Yog, is derived from Sanskrit word yuj which means to join or unite. Yoga is an ancient Indian science and art. The practice of yoga integrates the body, mind and soul. Yoga can be practiced by all irrespective of colour, caste, creed, sex and race.

The ancient seers laid down four ways by which the practitioner can attain samadhi or spiritual salvation,the goal of yoga.These are

Jnana Marg : The path of knowledge.

Karma Marg : The path of action.

Bhakti Marg : The path of selfless devotion.

Dhyan Marg : The path of introspection whereby pupil learns to cleanse the body, control the senses and restrains fluctuations of the mind. Dhyan Marg is clearly explained by Sage Patanjali

Sage Patanjali was the first person to present the ancient tradition of yoga in a systematic way. Thus he is considered the father of yoga. In his most important work- The Yog Sutras of Patanjali, he presented an eight fold path for attaining salvation. The path is called Ashtang Yog i.e. it is eight part yoga.

YOGA, MEDITATION AND HOLISTIC LIVING
Yoga, Meditation TreatmentsThe courses are designed and based on Patanjali’s Ashtang Yog propounded in the Yog Sutras. The concept of Yoga is based on Shrimad Bhagawad Gita which is considered the greatest literature on yoga. Besides this the spiritual practitioners will be introduced to Yog Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika and Gherand Samhita. This leads to self realization and understanding the true meaning of Nirvana or Moksha, which is freedom from the cycle of births and deaths. However, there exist many misconceptions regarding the word Yoga and its practice.
Parmarth Niketan is the largest ashram in Rishikesh, lying on the holy banks of Mother Ganga, in the lap of the lush Himalayas in Swargashram. Parmarth Niketan conducts a variety of yoga programmes which includes lectures on aspects of glorious Indian culture. There are frequent camps in which spiritual practioners come from across the world to take part in intensive programmes on Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama, Stress Management, Acupressure and other Indian ancient sciences. With the assistance of Yogacharyas from Parmath Niketan, We are offering programmes on yoga for one day, one week and one month. The programmes will consist of Yogasanas, Pranayama, Meditation as well as discussions on various aspects of spirituality and Indian culture. A highlight of the Yoga Programmes is attending the special Ganga Arti Ceremony (light and fire ceremony) performed in evening at sundown at Ganga Ghat.
