Consequently, the adoption of PsyYoga is highly recommended for both individuals and corporate entities, serving as a valuable tool to navigate the complexities of contemporary life. 


6. Who is called a  PsyYogi?

The Person or the Yogi who practices the PsyYoga System is called as PsyYogi®


7. What are three Core beliefs of PsyYogi? 

The practitioner of PsyYoga  (also known as PsyYogi) is grounded in the following three core beliefs:

(i)  PsyYogi must follow the fundamental principles of universal bliss, love, tolerance, diversity, and empathy for all of nature's creations, not provoke divisions or cause harm.

(ii) PsyYogi believes that any shift toward a diverse and tolerant world must commence from within oneself.

(iii) PsyYogi embrace the ancient Vedic concept of  'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam' which basically embraces the whole world, its people, flora, fauna, and all of the beautiful creations as one single family. This family comes above everything. Above our nationality, our race, our religion or our culture. 


8.  What is the concept of "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" ? 

The "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" origin 600 BCE (Sanskrit: वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम. from “vasudha” - the earth; “iva” - is; and “kutumbakam” - family) is a Sanskrit phrase that denotes that "The World Is One Single Family"

The ancient Vedic sages has said "The entire world is truly just one family" - The world is like a small, tightly knit family with diverse regions, religions, cultures and languages. 

The Vedas were composed during 600 BCE and handed down orally over a period of about 10 centuries, from about the 15th to the 5th century BC and are a large body of religious texts originating in ancient India and is composed in Vedic Sanskrit.

We at PsyYoga  call this concept of "Vasudhaiva kutumbakam" as:

"Connected Souls ®  : Meaning we are all interconnected souls of one large family on our planet Earth. 

All the living organisms in our environment encompassing both plant life (flora) and animal life (fauna), share a common ancestry and interconnected roots. 

The in-depth examination of DNA in contemporary scientific research has revealed correlations and similarities among all living entities. 

This at PsyYoga believes that this similarity provides us with a profound understanding that underscores the fundamental interconnectedness of all life forms. In essence, this represents a basic comprehension facilitated by the advancements in the study of genetics supporting the evidence of Vasudhaiva kutumbakam.

The core belief of 'connected souls' is the basis and the foundation for peaceful coexistence on earth among all its inhabitants living together peacefully and blissfully." - PsyYoga.org  

 

9. What is the purpose of PsyYoga?

This is needed to help us appreciate our life, promote positive thoughts, to aid in healing our inner wounds and the wounds in the hearts of others affected by the events in this world, and to imbue ourselves and others with abundant joy.

Our Earth is a small blue dot in this vast, infinite universe. Our human lifespan, compared to the light years of this universe, is exceedingly minuscule. Despite this, the human race has engaged in more wars for the sake of religions than for any other reason. As a consequence of these conflicts, humanity has suffered in unprecedented ways. 

Future generations must recognize that diversity is a natural law. The idea of having only one religion, culture, or language worldwide won't be effective. Uniformity, similar to having only one type of tree or animal in a forest, is not practical. It's crucial for people to understand this and change their ways before humanity is entirely consumed by religious divisions.

This is the primary belief system of a PsyYogi. 

PsyYoga is not intended for fame, adulation, financial gain, awards, trophies, or the pursuit of glory and legacy. PsyYoga is solely about discovering blissful living within ourselves and sharing it with those around us to contribute to the creation of a beautiful society.

At PsyYoga.org, our sole purpose is to engage in meaningful work, to serve, inspire, and heal. We aim to heal the world from the turmoil within and around us by assisting people through the practice of PsyYoga in managing their psyche and opening up their hearts to avoid atrocities committed on the human race globally.

Our true purpose is to enable the 'Power of the Psyche®' in people to work for them, not against them, and to help them understand that life is both magical and a gift bestowed by nature.  

In summary, our endeavor is a sincere attempt to elevate humanity to 'Humanity 2.0,' envisioning a society that is more diverse, tolerant, climate-conscious, and joyful. We aspire to foster a populace that coexists and prospers without the burden of wars, conflicts, and the misapplication of technology. Our aim is to bridge differences through the pursuit of psychological harmony, encapsulated in the concept we term as 'The Connected Souls.' In a broader context, this philosophy is known in Sanskrit as 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.'

 

10. The Mission of PsyYoga at the individual level

The mission of PsyYoga at the indivisual level is to maintain good mental and emotional health and also to live in a Blissful State

What is the core principle of PsyYoga?

The core principle of PsyYoga  is "Start with Bliss®" That means "Start Every Activity from a Blissful State" this teaching is at the core of PsyYoga.

Blissful state is achieved, when pain and pleasure is harmonized, loss and gain is harmonized.

It's a psychological harmony, and Yoga is for affirmation of that harmony into the self.

We know anger damages relationships, yet we ignite at times.

We know stress hurts, yet we're stressed most of the time.

We know anxiety is bad, yet we're anxious, uncertainty adds fuel to it.

Because, there is no way to embed what we know onto our psyche system so that, situations are handled by our psyche in auto-pilot mode, the way we had wanted it.

It's essential to note that, in the realm of behaviors, only prevention is effective; postmortem analysis is not helpful.

Through the practice of PsyYoga, the benefit lies in the automatic activation of the right action for a given circumstance, eliminating the need for external or forceful intervention, such as relying on 'willpower,' which is prone to failure in the long run.


 11. Usage of PsyYoga

(a) 'PsyYoga Affirmations' will help engrave the strong positive affirmations into the subconscious, so one can live the way, one intended to be, in auto pilot, without gaps in one's knowledge and the real practice.  

 (b) PsyYoga can also be practiced as an excellent premeditation ritual to do before sitting for meditation. This could aid to bring one to a meditative state of the mind, and help to de-clutter the mind psychologically, and remove the inner chaotic noises that bring imbalances and turmoil inside of us.

 

12. A Brief Introduction to The PsyYoga System  

We know about the yoga of the body (the various yoga asanas), yoga of the mind (meditation) but, can we do something to alter, the not so good areas of our psyche, that sometimes disturb us from experiencing pure happiness, and bliss in life? 

For ages we know, the Hatha Yoga takes care of the realms of the body, and Raja Yoga the mind, the body, and the mind are by-and-large the same for most of us living in a particular culture or demography.  

There's something else that needs attention, the one that is unique to us: Our Psychology.   

Our psychology is unique to us, and it depends upon our life experiences that we'd go through in this journey called life. 

No two person's life journey is the same, hence no two person's psychology is the same. - Krish K. Madembeth. 

 That's why - no two people are the same either.

Some people are lucky to have gone through the best circumstances in life and hence their resultant psyche which they have automatically built based on their life experience is also the best. 

They are lucky, already happy and blissful.

PsyYoga is not meant for them. 

Generally speaking. They can live their best way. Not need to alter it. 

But some people end-up having to live with not so likeable psyche that they have built all through their life, that's what the sum of their life experiences have finally molded it for them.

 Now, challenging and correcting those resultant negative life experiences that's impacting the mental health and obstructing growth of the individual is where PsyYoga aims to contribute. 

During a crises, most people aren't looking for only physical health or their mental health alone.  

They seek psychological solace, some peace, self-acceptance, and inner well-being. 

For them, that inner emptiness, dissatisfaction and hollowness must go, and must be replaced with some feeling of fullness, some peace and some happiness.  

The material world might have soothed them a bit but didn't fully help them either. 

Look at some of the people who get addicted to substance abuse, some of them fall prey to the pleasures of their senses fully knowing that committing excesses is not healthy while they basically are designed for moderation.  

They were physically strong too. Their acts didn't to the damage, the excesses did it. Their psychological harmony is in an altered state and their inner control lost. 

Think of those who take the extreme step to end their own life and succumb to suicides, its number one killer today among the young worldwide.

Quoting wikipedia "An estimated 1 million people worldwide die by suicide every year. Globally, suicide ranks among the three leading causes of death among those aged 15–44 years."

When we observe most of them who succumb to suicides weren’t physically or mentally weak either. They were in fact stronger than most people to arrive at such a bold decision.  

One needs courage to die.  

What they needed was psychological well-being. To harmonize their inner pains and pleasures of living. Their life's losses and their gains so as to help find new direction in their life. 

What if we can practice to exercise and keep not only our body and mind but our psyche in shape?  It will be of huge gain which our physical or our mental faculties  can't really provide us. - PsyYoga.org 

Through harmony of the Psyche, a Blissful State is achieved. 

The core principle of PsyYoga that is "To Start Every Activity from a Blissful State." 

Everything in PsyYoga revolves around the fundamental and transformative concept of starting every action of ours from a blissful state say, from morning the moment we wake up till we fall asleep in the night. 

PsyYoga intends to do just that, and help the needy wholeheartedly in a very simple easy and in a special way. 

 

13. Can Children Practice PsyYoga? 

No. 

PsyYoga is not recommended for children below 15 years of age.

Children are the most beautiful pearls of  our society, and are naturally bustling with joy and happiness. 

They generally don't need any external intervention or orientation in their psychological growth. It is best they learn, experience and manifest into their own psychological self to become their best possible adult. 


14. Is PsyYoga a series of Yoga Asanas? 

No. PsyYoga is not just yoga asanas. It is purely about the harmony of our psyche. 

The PsyYoga System consists of just three simple yoga poses or asanas 

These combined with breathing techniques, and mental assertion / visualization ( which needs to be practices fifteen minutes each) will help the practitioner attain harmony in one's psychology, and help one Start Every Action From a Blissful State. 

A few meditating poses are included only for enhancing the experience, and to also serve as a pre-meditative ritual. 


15. Is PsyYoga a physical fitness exercise ? 

No. 

PsyYoga is not a physical fitness exercise however a stress free, and happy mind results in an enhanced physical health.

For physical fitness, an harmonious psyche is an essential prerequisite.  An harmonized psyche, and an healthy body has a correlation. 


16 .Is PsyYoga a spiritual or religious based system?

 No. 

PsyYoga is not a spiritual system or religious system.

PsyYoga is not affiliated to any religious practices and it only endorses Divinity not Spirituality.

It's all about pure understanding of human psychology and bringing in harmony. 

However, we believe, it's best to acknowledge the existence of a governing power above all, that guides, all living and non-living matter in the scheme of our universe that we call as Divinity.  Every human is essentially Devine in nature but spirituality is a choice.


17. Does PsyYoga practice prescribe a specific diet? 

No. 

PsyYoga does not specify any particular dietary practice.  

But, as a general recommendation, an sattvic diet regimen, one that places emphasis on juices, water, seasonal food, nuts and fruits is recommended for a calm mind, and a cheerful spirit.
