SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE – YOKING OR UNITY OF BODY AND SOUL
For Soul or Spirit is defined as the Vital, Animating Principle found in all Living Things, I investigate Man’s Existence or Living Condition as Symptom of Yoking or Unity of Body and Soul. I define the term ‘Spiritual’ as Connection, Partnership, Joining, Association, Bonding, Yoking, or Coming Together of Body and Soul to provide Peace, Harmony, Tranquility, Balance, and Equilibrium in Living Experience.
As such the entire Human Body including Body, Mind, and Soul is derived from division, and multiplication of Single, Fertilized Egg Cell or Ovum. Indian Tradition of Health Science called Ayurveda may have different explanation to account for Man’s Living Condition in Health and Disease.

Acharya David Frawley
Yoga and Ayurveda are vast topics, particularly when one considers both their traditional and modern developments, and the great variety of topics and practices that each can cover. Yoga is not just asanas and Ayurveda is not just herbs, however important these may be! They cover the whole of life.
Both Yoga and Ayurveda are historically closely related and have developed in parallel since ancient times. They have diverged in modern times, over the last hundred and fifty years, particularly outside of India, in which Yoga without Ayurveda was for a long time the norm. However, Yoga and Ayurveda are becoming reconnected again, not only in India but throughout the entire world. Their reintegration is reintegration of consciousness, life, healing and transformation!
Origins of Yoga and Ayurveda
Yoga begins historically with the Mantra Yoga of the Rigveda, the oldest Vedic ! text that originated over five thousand years ago. These mantras of the Rishis promote a Yoga or union with the higher powers of consciousness in the universe, providing the basis for the Self-knowledge and cosmic knowledge that we find in later Vedanta and the Vedic sciences.
This connection of Yoga and mantra is reflected in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali that emphasizes OM, the main mantra from which the Vedas are said to have originated, and in Patanjali’s work as great grammarian.
Vedic mantras, along with corresponding rituals and meditations, were commonly used both for spiritual development and for helping gain the outer goals of life, invoking the Devatas or the Divine powers behind nature and the soul. These cosmic energies are defined mainly as four in the Vedas as Agni (fire), Vayu or Indra (air and electrical energy), Surya! (sun) and Soma (moon). Their light forms are symbolic of yet deeper inner powers of Agni as speech, Vayu/Indra as Prana, Surya as Atman (soul), and Soma as the mind. A variety of such formulations exists in Vedic texts.
Veda means knowledge or science and Yoga, meaning work or practice, arose as a term for its application. …..
