6. Read the following passage carefully: (8 Marks)
THE YOGIC WAY OF LIFE
We give undue importance to our health and the treatment of diseases. A large number
of medicines treat only the symptoms of the disease, and not the root cause. In fact, the
cause of many chronic ailments is still being researched. It is here that Yoga therapy
comes to our assistance. Yoga emphasizes treatment of the root cause of an ailment. It
works in a slow, subtle and miraculous manner. Modern medicine can claim to save a
life at a critical stage, but, for complete recovery and regaining of normal health, one
must believe in the efficiency of Yoga therapy.
The yogic way of life includes a code of ethics, regulations, discipline and more,
combined with prayer and meditation. Even a discussion on these subjects helps one
relieve mental tensions and change attitudes. Simple Asanas help to stretch and relax
the whole body and neutralize tensions. The sincere practice of Yoga postures benefits
all levels of experience. Through continuous practice, Yoga postures can have a
profound effect on the inner dimensions of life, establishing deep calm, concentration,
emotional stability and confidence. Man is a physical, mental, and spiritual being, all the
three. Other forms of physical exercises, like aerobics, assure only physical well-being.
They have little to do with the development of the spiritual or astral body.
