|Sri Swamiji Says
Although Yoga is employed to achieve health, it does not stop there.
By conferring the power to control the mind, it certainly shows the way to reach higher realms of Truth. There may be innumerable spiritual paths, but all paths employ yoga in one form or the other to reach the ultimate goal.
Therefore, it can be said that yoga does not have limitations such as religion, community, region and gender.

Lord Hanuman Story
In the last newsletter, we learned that Ravana shamelessly abducted Devi Sita in his flying chariot. Sugreev and his exiled vanara supporters recovered a cloth wrapped package which was dropped from that chariot though they did not know whom it belonged to at the time.
Near the Rukshyamuka mountain, there was a holy river named Pampa, which means the remover of obstacles. The river emptied into a valley forming the Pampa lake and was known to have miraculous healing properties. Sugreev and Hanuman spent many afternoons in this serene and beautiful area.
On one such afternoon, they spotted two men walking along the lake shore, carrying bows and arrows. Even without seeing them clearly, Hanuman was filled with warmth and bliss. Sugreev, however, ran away and hid out of fear that Vali sent these warrior (Kshatriya) men to drag him back Kishkindha. He asked Hanuman to disguise himself and approach the strangers to find out the truth.
Hanuman, recalling his powers of diplomacy and disguise when Sugreev mentioned them, approached the two strangers in the form of a vedic boy. The boy asked the two handsome men innocently,"Who are you? Why are you dressed like sons of sages while carrying arms like warriors?" Lord
Ram and Lord Lakshman remained silent and simply smiled while closely observing the well-spoken and well-mannered boy before them.
As Hanuman was talking to them a feeling of bliss, unlike any he had felt before, steadily grew within him. He mentioned Sugreev and Vali while intently watching the two men for their reactions. There was nothing to concern him and Hanuman correctly surmised that they were not working for Vali. Soon, emboldened by this inner feeling within him, he spoke the truth about being Sugreev's minister and told the princes of their current situation. Then Hanuman invited the two princes to meet with King Sugreev.
The princes had actually come to this area looking for Sugreev based on the suggestions of Shabari, a tribal woman whom they had met on their search for Devi Sita. Impressed by Hanuman's countenance, scholarly speech and this fortunate coincidence, they heartily accepted Hanuman's invitation to meet with King Sugreev.
