Now the teaching and discipline of Yoga is explained. (YS I 1.)
Yoga is a natural state. It is life itself. There is no such thing as enlightenment waiting for you with all its blissful promises at the end of a long and restricting journey. Enlightenment is Yoga, it is understanding life itself, it is right here and now – ATHA. Yoga is nature, it is God, it is you and me and every being, it is pure energy. Yoga is every impuls happening in every little moment.
