  7. Gurudev, what is Raj Yoga? Is it only for kings?

    Raj Yoga means getting things without much effort. What you are doing is Raj Yoga. You are getting everything on a platter here. You didn’t have to do all that Lord Buddha did. How many years he walked miles and miles! What not he did! He f ...

    Every baby is a yogi. A baby does all the yoga asanas, and has all those qualities.
