2. In Raja Yoga, Pratyahara means moderation. It is reducing rush towards sense objects.
3. Moderation is balancing between action and relaxation.
4. Moderation is balanced diet and enough sleep (for 8 hrs).
5. Doing prayer before eating food is good habit to control our rush.
6. All life style diseases can be reduced by changing life style.
7. Dhyana (concentration), Dharana (focusing) and Samadhi (bliss) are Antrang Yoga (direct ways) to control our mind.
8. Whole education system is built to increase concentration.
