What is Yoga Science?

The American Meditation Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization devoted to providing comprehensive training in Yoga Science—the world’s oldest holistic mind/body medicine and the core principle of every spiritual tradition. Yoga is the sacred science that provides proven benefits by facilitating the union of the superconscious mind with the physical, mental and emotional elements of everyday life. Founded in 1996 by Leonard and Jenness Perlmutter, AMI combines ancient Eastern wisdom and modern Western science in a practical, empowering curriculum. The foundation course of this curriculum is AMI MEDITATION.

Thought for The Week:

"Coordinate all Four Functions of the Mind and Your Conscience will provide the Super Conscious Wisdom that can transform your life into a beautiful work of art." -Leonard Perlmutter (Ram Lev)

We get glimpses of this beauty occasionally: a pause during a beautiful sunset, a peaceful walk at a local lake, or a joyous gathering of family and friends on a holiday. But what if life could be that way, always? It can... Life can certainly be a beautiful work of art: once we train our ego, senses, and unconscious to listen in, and take advice from the Conscience. At that moment, life can be a work of art always.

Are the choices you make for your perennial joy or are they only passing pleasures? While one choice leads to happiness, the other is immediate gratification followed by sadness or dis-ease.

Consider the candy bar during a mid-day food craving: made from smooth milk chocolate, it smells delicious to the senses and tastes just as appealing. But we all know that it is also chock full of sugar and unhealthy fats and we will find that if we gorge ourselves on too much chocolate often enough, we can be certain to have a rush of energy at first, but later we find we've got an energy crash, or even a stomach or headache. If we continue this unhealthy behavior over time, it can cause an even worse results to the body- possibly, the beginnings of diabetes.

Choosing the candy bar every day when your energy is low, is what is called the Preya: some experience, emotion, or consideration that is very pleasant, attractive, familiar, comfortable, and extremely easy to give our attention to. This Preya reflects a strong attachment. When you give your attention to the Preya, you experience the spike of passing pleasure (the taste of the candy bar, the satisfaction of a full stomach, the initial energy boost) but ultimately the Preya does not offer a long-term benefit.

Fortunately, there is another alternative, the Shreya: a thought, action, or experience that is always in harmony with our inner wisdom- one that leads us to lasting joy. But how do we choose the Shreya when the Preya is so enticing? Learn more in this essay by Leonard Perlmutter (Ram Lev) called "Thinking as Medicine:" americanmeditation.org/thinking-as-medicine/
