Revelations about Yoga by Paramahamsa Nithyananda
International Yoga Day, Varanasi, 21 Jun 2016
The second important truth he revealed this International day of Yoga was that Yoga cannot be developed. “You cannot develop on Sadashiva” he said. "Yoga is a complete science that had taken into account all types of bodies past, present and yet to come in the future. Altering Yoga is not development but dilution". He urged everyone to always ask their teachers for the original source. He also added that Yoga cannot be separated from Hinduism. The teacher's personal experience should align with the scriptural references. Otherwise it could be dangerous since the techniques which worked for the teacher may not work for all students. He urged the teachers of Yoga to ensure that their teachings are aligned to the original scriptures and then restart teaching. That, he said, is the best thing they could do to themselves and to the students in front of them.
To support this, Swamiji announced a huge project to collect and release all the Agamas of Mahadeva - the original authentic sources - from the original palm leaves in a translated and usable version on the internet to humanity. As a step towards this, he announced the release of the first set palm leaf digitizations of books on Yoga and other topics by Mahadeva amounting to 600 GB of data. He said more than 3 Terabytes of manuscripts had been collected so far and are being processed and more is being acquired, researched and published.
And the final revelation that Swamiji made today was that Yoga is not just the science of keeping you healthy; not just the ability to stretch your body. But, he said, it is the science of radiating enlightenment; the ability to manifest whatever you want. "It is not all about making you a better man, but about making you a superman. Yoga is a powerful alchemy system that gives result as soon as you start. It should give results on day one and by one month you should be manifesting powers" he said.
