Yoga - A National Perspective

Dr. H. R. Nagendra

Vivekananda Kendra Yoga Research Foundation, Bangalore, India

 The rule of the British in India, in a sense, was a boon for India. Their ulterior motive of initially, business and then to conquer India no doubt succeeded. But the subtle tactics of education to create an army of slaves and clerks in India so that the British could rule India for eternity did not work for long. The English-educated little genius Naren, with an innate urge to find God, powered by Gadadhara, the great Ramakrishna Paramahansa, reversed the calculations of the British. The studentship of Sri Aurobindo in England only made him a master of English, Greek and Latin, training in Law helped Gandhi to give a concrete shape to Ahimsa and Panchasheela, the key features of Hindu religion, as a tool to organize the society to relieve Mother Bharat from the shackles of slavery. The backlog of identity crisis, selfishness and pettiness, Tamas and corruption is reaching an end now after half a century of Independence, thanks to the mass organization invoking the patriotic favor of Hindu renaissance initiated and powered by many geniuses of different organizations, concretizing the dream of Swami Vivekananda to bring the organizational skill of the West with which 'he fell in love' in USA for the reconstruction of India.

The vision of Swamiji was to rebuild Mother Bharat in tune with her personality enshrined in yoga and spiritual lore. The genius of Eknathji Ranade located the holistic concept of yoga, another name for spirituality in the words of Swami Vivekananda 'Each Soul is potentially Divine,' and adopted it as the basis of Vivekananda Kendra(VK). He could see the vision of Sri Aurobindo enunciating Integral yoga as a furthering depth of Swamiji's thoughts on yoga. Eknathji trained in the organizational skills and powered by a patriotic favor with the holistic vision of Hindu nation enunciated a century ago by Swami Vivekananda, in tune with the emerging trends of popularity of yoga gave a direction to the Kendra in his first pamphlet 'Yoga, the core of Vivekananda Kendra'.
