                                Image result for IMAGE THE WAVE FORGETS THAT IT IS THE OCEAN

The wave forgets the truth that it is ocean, thinking itself To be the grand shape, which it has temporarily taken. For a while, it takes on the rupa (form) of wave.Finally, it remembe rs its true rupa (form) of ocean. The two coexist, though one is true, and theother, though beautiful, is only relatively true. So too, we humans forget our true nature,but, through yoga, can remember.

The Aim of Yoga is to allow the Spirit to find it’s true nature as Observer of the world and its a Teacher of Yoga’s responsibility to guide the Student towards that mark..
