Yoga way of Life in ancient times
Got lost in modern materialistic times

Way of harmonising mind-body-spirit
Combination of breathing rhythm, postures, meditation, diet

Offers preventive, therapeutic, psychic cures 
Not just an exercise, divine path for merging with universe  

Age no bar, easy to practise any time
Simple mat, props, no need of hi-fi gym

Develops repulsive force towards flesh food for cellular quietness 
Drops non-veg diet, avoids system irritation thru vegetarian dishes

No other stream renders benefits physical, mental and spiritual 
Yoga, truly embodying Union of souls, Individual with Universal

Yoga, ancient healers gift to world, origin of India 
In modern polluted world, Yoga the only healthy idea

    Dear Hitendra-Good morning. I started off with Caroloyn's sunset dusk off to read this healthy poem that encourages one to reap the rewards of this healthy lifestyle. Your words choices show strength-just as the person's body who chooses this way to live-embodying union of souls, merging with the universe. You are pushing towards a yoga mat simply through this write. (You seldom go to the doctor?) Blessings to you this day! Gwendolen

    Awesome, Hitendra. I took Yoga classes but the meat-free diet was never mentioned. You describe well the many benefits of practicing yoga. I'm sure Tahera will agree. Sending winning wishes your way for the contest! Love, Carolyn
