Theos Bernard~ Hindu Philosophy pg.2

“Hindu Philosophy does not attempt to train one to discern meta-physical truths; it offers a way of thinking which enables one rationally to understand the reality experienced by self-fulfilled personalities,and thereby to lead one to the realization of Truth.

In this light, philosophy is seen as an art of life and not a theory about the universe, for it is the means of attaining the highest aspirations of man. It is not for the discovery, but for the understanding of Truth.”

All these senses (indriyas) constitute the awareness and reactive responses which the Self makes to the objects that follow, the means whereby enjoyment is had, which is the will to life. Existence is the tying of these experiences together into an endless chain; life is the force that holds them.

The philosophical basis of Yoga is the Sāṁkhya. The ancient teachers (ṛṣis) have extended the laws that govern the evolution of the universe to cover the evolution of the individual, showing that the individual is but the microcosm of the macrocosm. The system as it applies to the individual is called the Yoga Philosophy. It is said that there is no knowledge equal to the Sāṁkhya and no power equal to Yoga.

According to the classic schools of Hindu Philosophy, the method by which the individual can evolve himself during this life is through the practice of Yoga. This is the universal technique recommended to enable man to acquire actual insight into the true nature of things. All schools agree that until the faith is fortified with understanding, little progress can be made, for knowledge without application is like medicine that is not taken.
