According to the hypothesis of Yoga, economy of nature is the economy of abundance where poverty has no space. As a group we question the persistence of absolute poverty in a prosperous existence with people around the world lacking access to essential needs. As an answer to this, our resolve is to establish a self-sustainable Yoga Village free of poverty and fear. This Yoga village operates as a Research and Development Center on the functionality of a non-functional state of Existence. In simple words, the exploration of the potential of existence, is guiding us to create various activities under a project called Yoga village Abhayaranya – Rishikesh Yog Peeth.
Abhayaranya is a Sanskrit word combining the word "Abhaya" - Fearless state - and "Aranya" - A place, sanctuary, garden or forest. Abhayaranya – Rishikesh Yog Peeth is an idea in seed form on the concept of Applied Yoga. Our vision is to manifest an independent, self-sustained lifestyle with minimal dependency over Market and Government. A Yoga Village living the values of Applied Yoga will ensure a non-competitive and cooperative way of life.
Yoga is often perceived as a lifestyle in the name of which practice takes various forms and expressions, including regularity, some people practice a lot, others less. What is irregularity of Yoga? Maybe the reduction of practice to a simplest expression: Asana, Pranayama and Dhyana within a specific setting. Is it possible to practice Yoga moment by moment in our day-to-day activities without switching the off button? Applied Yoga is about embracing the practice into every aspect of our life on the basis of Traditional Yoga of Patanjali Yog Sutra and its theorem of eight limbs. It is an effort to reinterpret the same age old traditional Yoga for its outward expression.
It appears that these two are different streams and they oppose each other but with subtle awareness one recognizes that they complement each other. Every insight eagerly waits for its outward expression and every outward expression has its insight.
