India, the fabled land of seers, sages, spiritual leaders and healers has been a beacon of light for the West for centuries. It is known for its tremendous cultural power that has maintained a deep impact on the world for thousands of years. The richness of India’s culture is manifest in a myriad traditions, languages, faiths and rituals that lend it both wealth and depth. People of this revered land exude a sense of vitality and positive energy that conveys the essence of life. Though the west has cast its influence through colonial rule, the people of India still hold on to their rich culture and heritage which is a thing to be marveled at. Arguably, the most trending thing in the world, yoga is believed to have originated in India about 5,000 years ago. As per the yogic lore, Adiyogi, the first yogi, transmitted the science of yoga to the legendary Saptrishis or “seven sages”. He presented and explained 112 ways through which mortal beings can surpass their limitations and unleash their ultimate potential. Adiyogi’s offerings were carried to different parts of the world by these seven enlightened sages. Agastya, the sage who travelled across to the Indian Subcontinent was the most effective in terms of incorporating the spiritual process in practical life, not just as an ideology but as a way of life itself. It is his teaching and philosophy that has crafted the Indian culture around a core yogic way of life.
