Yoga  The aim of Yoga is to attain perfect happiness.  The method for attaining it lies in the full development of the mind and body. www.pathofbliss.com

Yoga  One can achieve it slowly by natural means …  … but there is a well defined method for more rapid self-development www.pathofbliss.com

The Teacher/Guide  In the path of Yoga the teacher is called “Guru”  “One who dispels darkness” www.pathofbliss.com

Mantra   “that collection of sounds meditation on which leads to liberation” Mantra creates a parallelism between individual rhythm and Cosmic rhythm. www.pathofbliss.com
