If you have ever been to India you would’ve probably seen more than a hundred of yogis sitting right next to the Ganges and meditating and practicing yoga their lives out. Meditation is a form of seeking the eternal.
Meditation keeps the body very relaxed and keeps control of the whole human system. There are more than eighty yoga asanas that keeps the body fit and inshape (A group of 84 classic yoga asanas taught by Lord Shiva is mentioned in several classic texts on yoga).
Surya Namaskar is one of the most important asana in yoga which is essentially about building a dimension within you where your physical cycles are in sync with the sun’s cycles, which run at about twelve-and-a-quarter years. The ultimate goal in yoga is Moksha (मोक्ष) also known as Mukti which means emancipation, liberation or release. Moksha is a central concept and included as one of the four aspects and goals of human life, the other three goals are dharma ( moral life), artha (material prosperity) and kama (pleasure). Together, these four aims of life are called ‘Purusartha’ in Hinduism.

Yoga Sutra (Sadhana Pada)
The above sutra means, After the dissolution of avidya (ignorance), comes removal of communion with material world, this is the path to Kaivalyam (The realization of aloofness with liberating knowledge of one’s self and union with the spiritual universe.)
Practicing Surya Namaskar and meditating daily helps in leading a very healthy lifestyle.
