2.The bondages of body are overcome and Moksha is attained through 4 streams of Yoga.
3.Raja Yoga is path of will power.
4.We can indirectly and directly control the mind.
5.Direct control includes following Yama and Niyama (sets of don’t and do’s).
6.Non-violence, truth, non-stealing, celibacy and non-possession are Yamas.
7.Make mind a great friend then you will expand.
8.Freedom is mastery over senses and mind.
9.Moderation brings mastery over mind. It is overcoming strong likes and dislikes and having things without excess.
