Arhatic Yoga | The Yoga of Synthesis
Many years ago, a great teacher named Mahaguruji Mei Ling revealed an esoteric system of practices and techniques. This system was advanced, specifically meant for spiritual practitioners to accelerate their development safely and rapidly. After years of experimentation and validation, Master Choa Kok Sui brought this once-hidden system to the public. It was named Arhatic Yoga.
A synthesis of spiritual practices, Arhatic comes from the word “Arhat”, which means saint, or highly evolved being, referring to a person who has overcome their weakness and character flaws through diligent practice and inner purification. An Arhat is characterised by having a sharp and intelligent mind, refined emotions, well-developed intuition and, above all, a deep and powerful will to serve humanity and God.
While many people believe Yoga to be some physical exercises that help them stay fit, the true meaning of Yoga encompasses a massively wide range of spiritual practices. The goal of Yoga is simple – to accelerate the evolutionary process of the soul. A Sanskrit word, Yoga means “to unite” or to join or yoke. It refers to the union of the incarnated soul with the higher soul.
The purpose of Arhatic Yoga is, therefore, “to produce intelligent, compassionate, good-hearted, powerful disciples who will become great Divine servants… and to accelerate the evolutionary development of the soul so that the person can be of greater service to mankind and the planet Earth.” Master Choa Kok Sui
Arhatic Yoga is meant for working people on the spiritual path. There is no need to retreat from life, career or relationships to pursue the spiritual. Many lessons can be learnt from the practice of Arhatic Yoga while still having an everyday life through daily challenges and interactions.
Master Choa Kok Sui believes that “family life is one of the fastest ways to spiritual development. Inevitably, there is relationship friction. You develop Self-Sacrifice, Self-Control, Patience, Flexibility and Tolerance.”
Moreover, spirituality is not merely doing meditation but a way of life! Through this structured practice and discipline, one can achieve a certain degree of self-mastery. As the connection with the higher soul grows, there is greater control over one’s thoughts, emotions and actions. They are not as quick to emotional outbursts nor as susceptible to the vicissitudes of life.
Through regular purification, meditation, service and study, Arhatic Yoga helps accelerate the journey for achieving oneness with the higher soul, suitable for people with various backgrounds who want to pursue spirituality while living a normal, everyday life.
