RAI, Lajpat (Morarji Desai National Institute of Yoga)
According to one school of Yoga, the 'Self'-The Inner Conscious Instrument' - governs the ultimate health at physical, mental, emotional and intellectual levels. Yoga emphasizes that 'Self is nothing but -(i) accumulated tensions, (ii) all sorts of diseases, illnesses, (iii) desires unfulfilled, hopes frustrated, expectations and dreams - all broken, and fractured, (iv) the most purified form of the ego, and (v) the last remmant of strain, stress and tension. According to Patanjali "Once we are clinging to body, mind and intellect, they function under the influence of law of gravitation. Once one becomes aware that one is neither the body nor the mind nor the intellect, suddenly one starts rising upwards i.e. some centre somewhere high up in the sky pulls one up. That law is called 'Law of Levitation'. This law has to be there, otherwise gravitation could not exist. Based on this paradigm, the science of yoga observes that: "One who is able to maintain a constant state of desirelessness, even towards the most exalted states of enlightenment - "the ultimate renunciation", and is able to exercise the highest kind of discrimination, enters the state known as "the ultimate health" - wholeness, wherein all wounds get healed. This shall be explained with scientific evidence and implications for health psychology.
