Yoga In Buddhism By Swami Rajarshi Muni
Mircea Eliade, in his book "YOGA: Immortality and Freedom", writes as follows: “During his period of study and asceticism, Sakya Muni had come to know both the doctrines of Sankhya and the practice of Yoga. Arad Kalam taught a sort of pre-classic Sankhya at Vaishali, and Udrak Ramputra expounded the basis and goals of Yoga.” 1
Let us try to understand which of the three humors in your body is predominant and which is imbalanced according to your own natural Prakriti. Dosha means body-mind disposition. The indicators that Āyurveda utilizes in these tests include careful examinations of one’s pulse, urine, stool, tongue, eyes, facial luster, voice, and the texture of the skin.
The Sanskrit word Sanyam has two words. Sam+yam. Sam means the highest, the best and yam means restrainst . Thus sanyam means constraint of the senses and mind. This indicates that without restraint, or Sanyam , there can be no self-control, and without self-control we can accomplish neither Dharm nor Moksha.

What is Maha Yoga?
In the beginning, Lord Lakulish taught this Maha Yoga to Swami Pranavanandji in 1913. Swami Pranvanand taught it to Swami Kripalvanand in 1931. In 1971 Swami Kripalvanand taught it to Swami Rajarshi Muni. He has practiced it sincerely for nearly 38 years. He has shared the knowledge and experiences he gained through the practice of this Maha Yoga, by way of the books he wrote on this subject.
Teaching Ancient Ways in Modern Times
The grand opening of the Lakulish Yoga and Health Retreat (Life Mission USA), took place May 15th - 16th, 2010, at Mebane, North Carolina, USA.
Swami Satyanand addressed the large gathering present and explained why a sannyasi (spiritual renunciate) would be found among worldly people rather than practicing his Yoga in seclusion. As well, he provided some of the background behind the creation and purpose of the Retreat.
