Yoga means disciplining the mind and uniting it with the self. Yoga Karmasu Kausalam. Every second, we are acting. Even breathing is Karma. Kausalam means skull in work. Still is not different from worship, if it is done in a proper spirit.When Swami Trigunatitananda of Shri Ramakrishna Math had to give up his spiritual practice, his mediation and other discipliners, to carry out Swami Vivekananda's orders, many orthodox Hindus did not like that a sanyasi should beg for subscriptions, going door to door.Vivekananda told them. "The circulation of the magazine is only for the good of the householders. The masses will benefit by the spread of these new ideas in the country. This unselfish work is not in any way inferior to devotional practive. Our object is to do good to humanity.Yoga is the control of thought waves in the mind. The mind seems to be intelligent and conscious, whereas Atman is intelligence itself, pure consciousness. The mind merely reflects the consciousness with borrowed intelligence. The self should understand that the self within by which you perceive or act is the same in the cosmos, in all manifest and unmanifest. Yoga means disciplining the mind and uniting ti with the self.Between the two names of repetition there is silence, the peace that is natural. You are not making or doing anything. You know the word that is coming next and if some other thought comes, you can realize it and nip it in the bud and come back to your japa.Japa keeps the mind occupied meaningfully.

Contrary to common thought that the sinuses could become congested when the body is inverted, they become very light and the spread of infection to the other sinuses is limited.Standing poses such as utthita trikonasana clear the sinus very rapidly due to release of endogenous adrenaline and nonadrenaline head stand and shoulder stand are a must, along with forward bends.
