The beginning level of yoga practice includes exercises that can only be practiced in special «hothouse» conditions — in a temple, gym or at home. Therefore, beginners who do not have sufficient knowledge about the Purpose of the Tradition of Yoga and the essence of practical rituals, associated with physical, breathing or contemplation exercises, with an atmosphere of «prayered» Place, with mystery and participation to something special and mysterious. But, after completing the training and leaving this special Place, beginners return to the swirl of their routine life and usually forget about the practice of Yoga. They become normal and ordinary. Then they become licentious and make a great many karmic mistakes (sins).
In the course of accumulating practical experience at advanced Yoga practice levels, all of life’s actions turn into particular varieties of training. They become conscious, oriented towards the realization of one’s intent in life and the achievement of the harmony of being.
Then, the «esoteric mist» surrounding all things related to the dogma and mystery of special ritual practices dissipates and changes into ordinary but conscious actions based on the Knowledge of the Essence of ritual actions.
Various exercises, which can comprise the training program, are varieties of Dharaha, the exercises in concentration of attention, which promote the strengthening of one’s personal Power of Spirit and serve as the foundation for Dhyana — contemplation. When the spiritual concentration level reaches some critical point, the result is a spiritual «explosion» that turns one’s whole life into Dhyana — contemplation. Then personal motivations in life are replaced by divine predestination. When this happens, one’s self-assurance and one’s feeling of «self-exclusiveness» are replaced with Wisdom and Simplicity.
The growing up of the Spirit is the natural process where leaps by wish and by mind are impossible. That is why there is no sense to try to become perfect in one’s mind. Fictional properties, which are not confirmed by sufficient practical experience, will remain only fantasies. Perfection can only be reached within the Spirit. And no one will say when the explosion of «ego» will take place, or when enlightenment occurs and divinity comes. Will this occur in the present life, or is this destined only to happen far in one’s remote future? Everything depends on when the concentration will reach the required limit, and sufficient personal Power of Spirit has been accumulated. Therefore, the best thing to be done is to strive, truly and tirelessly, for the Purpose of the Tradition of Yoga, which implies irreproachable actions and uninterrupted concentration in life.
