India is full of spiritual practices and most gurus have attended the high peak of human consciousness like Jaggi Vasudeva and Osho and many more.
The perspective of these beings towards life is totally different as they are looking at the other aspect of the universe which is not normal for beings that have not touched that part of life.
The path of Spirituality in India is not so strange as we are witnessing one or more people who enlightened us in many ways.
Gurus and Yogis in India can be traced since the time of the begging cosmology of this planet. As we found some text which is revealed the base of this journey is Adi yogi himself who showed the path of Yoga.
As per Yogic Science, 15,000 years ago a man appeared in the above Himalayan region and sit silently but in a rejuvenating state which made curious to some yogis come to see him.
He seemed to be the man whose body is here but his other dimension what we called Pranic Energy or “Soul” was in another space or dimension which is inaccessible to us.
Only 7 Yogis found it unique and they wait for the opening of the eyes of that Yogi. They just wait for him without knowing when he will open his eyes.
And when the alien Yogi opened his eyes and he saw that all 7 yogis were shining and their faces is covered with light. He realized that these all yogis have been got enlightened and are now able to perceive what is not normal to other human beings.
At last, he asked them to open their eyes, and then he taught them some techniques which were extra unimaginable for those beings.
Now we called those 7 Yogis “Saptrishis” and the main yogi “Adiyogi” this process of being enlightened has been continued by other yogis who got to know about these techniques and hence in this way the path of Yoga in India is still active.
My emotions and knowledge of spirituality is limitless and can not be expressed in words but besides that fact, I have given some words about the name. If you have any queries or are curious to know the spiritual world text me here.
