Translation of Shri Mahayogi’s words during a satsangha in New York
July 10, 2010
Master: The purpose of Yoga is very clear from its beginning. Our True Self is the Pure Existence called Atman, and the purpose of Yoga is to “realize It” and “live It.” The various yogic disciplines are intended to remove the obstacles that hinder the realization of It. Through the methods of study, faith and stilling of the breath, you will realize It. Practice and discipline are indispensable for realization of the True Self as soon as possible. Once you fully realize that only Atman exists in this world, and only Atman is the Truth, discipline is no longer essential. Then, how will this [fully realized] person live? How should this [fully realized] yogi live? He or she no longer has anything to do for him or herself, and all actions are done to make others happy. This may be done through the Mission or through individual actions. May you actualize such a way at the earliest possible day.
