The Purpose of Yoga

Yoga literally means Union.
The purpose of yoga is to achieve union between the incarnated soul and the higher soul.
This union is actually a science, not just an art.
It is spiritual technology.
Soul-realization’ is nothing more than the incarnated soul realizing that it is not the body and it is one with the higher soul.
This is the meaning of Yoga or Illumination.” 

-Master Choa Kok Sui (from the book “Achieving Oneness with the Higher Soul”)
