The Science of Yoga
The goal of all yoga processes is to lead one to a correct understanding of what is; and, furthermore, to apply that correct understanding in life.
Unlike religion, in which an individual may believe or not believe in something (regardless of its truth or untruth), the process of yoga is one that allows a person to experience direct perception. In other words, it is a science, and as a science it is a quest to understand or know the truth as it is—regardless of whether the yoga practitioner wants to believe that truth or not. True understanding of the nature of things and their actual relationships is known as self-realization. Acting on the basis of that self-realization is known as wisdom.
Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras state:
Various yoga processes, including asanas, pranayama, meditation, etc., are meant to remove such misconceptions.
According to Patanjali:
The yogi, like the modern scientist, employs the laws of logic and observation, but does not limit his search for the truth only to that which is outside of himself. His scientific research also involves inner work—for example, observation of and learning about the nature of his mind, his behavior, his actions, etc.
The Science of Identity Foundation exists specifically to assist individuals who want to know the truth of their identity (i.e., their true essence and their relationship to the physical body, the mind, etc.) to realize the actual purpose of their life and where actual happiness is found.
