Now if one finds the Moolabandhasana posture in 9000 BC,how can one date Yoga Sutra of Patanjali at 400 BC?
And this Yoga has been in vogue in the south of Vindhyas in India and was based on Yoga Sutras.
This means that the south was very much in tune with Sanatana Dharma and was a part of Sanatana Dharma. Patanjali is one of the Eighteen Siddhars of Tamil, it can be postulated that Yoga and Sanatana Dharma was present in the South,Dravida Desa at the time of Rig Veda and the Sarasvati River in full flow.
Which means that the Dravida culture is at least 10,000 years old as Sarasvati River and The Rig Veda are dated around the same time.
When we perceive,we have the objects we Perceive and our Impressions of them in the Mind.
The Objects do not change from time to time.
It is our interpretation of them at a particular point of time changes.
So what needs to be changed is our perception of Objects.
This Consciousness can be reached through the two components that make up humans,Emotion and Reason.
While the emotion is used to raise the level of Consciousness through Bhakti Yoga,the process of surrendering oneself to God,the Reason is used to reach out Consciousness by practicing Karma Yoga,the Path of Action and by Gnana Yoga,Path of Discrimination.
The purpose is to reach Consciousness through the available tools,Emotion and Reason.
But again as Human Beings have different dispositions/Nature,one must choose what is best for him/ her.
To get you know the depth, I am posing on a poem,which forms a part of the Prayer,called Paayiram
Here Thirumoolar describes Shiva from numbers One to Eight.
Each of the statements is pregnant with Tantra and Philosphical meaning
The Mind,Manas,ascribes file folders like agreeable,disagreeable,the Genus the Stimuli belongs to.
It does not go further,excepting associating the Stimuli with Emotion.
But is Buddhi,this can be translated roughly as Intellect ,passes judgement by assigning Labels such as Correct,Incorrect,factual judgements ;Right or Wrong ,Moral Judgement.
