6. Read the following passage carefully: (8 Marks)


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.

On the basis of the reading of the passage given above answer the following


a) What do most of the medicines treat?

b) How is yoga different from the other treatments?

c) What does the yogic way of life include?

d) What do ‘Simple Asanas’ help to do?

e) How does sincere practice of yoga postures benefit us?

f) How does yoga therapy work?

g) Is yoga better than physical exercise? How?

h) What does the phrase ‘Chronic ailments’ in paragraph No. 1 mean?
