Yoga is a product of the perennial wisdom of India. One can trace the origin of Yoga back to the period of Indus Valley civilisation i.e. at least three thousand years before Christ. All through the last five thousand years it has remained as one of the most important facets of the Indian Culture, remaining vibrant and responsive to the changing times all through this period.
As it came to be developed in Indian it came to be associated with the development of Hinduism and its philosophy. But in its essence it has always remained separate from any religious doctrines or dogmas and never demanded acceptance of any specific belief system. It has always remained as a pathway open for all the people professing different faiths belonging to different religions and different races. In essence it is a path of spiritual enquiry, awakened by the earnest desire for having a deeper understanding of the Life and the entire phenomenon associated with it.
