  1. Very different than Buddhism!

  2. Ramesh says:

    Yes, multiple are the ways toward Oneness/Voidness!

  3. YogiOne says:

    This assumes that cosmic consciousness exists. I see no evidence for that proposition.

  4. Ramesh says:

    The proof of Nirvana/Nirvikalpa/Satori and the nondual Cosmic Consciousness experience lies in the experience itself and the authority of those who have experienced it. We experience the sensory world through the senses, the mental world through the mind and the spiritual world through spirit itself. In yoga, we thus talk of body/mind/spirit. So if you deny the spiritual and subjective inner proof of the yogis, and your own, you also deny spirit and thus collapse yoga to a body/mind reality only.
