THE WAY OF A PILGRIM — Part II

Hatha Yoga — The Occult Science of Health

Yoga is a single comprehensive science,
and it applies to the individual as a whole.
The many varieties of Yoga of which we read
and hear a great deal, but understand very little,
are not separate and distinct processes,
but are simply aspects, or departments,
of the one great science of
MAHA YOGA.
There are seven of these branches,
and all of them have to be used
in balanced combination
to bring about the
perfect development
we aim at.

HATHA YOGA regarded properly
is that branch of the Great Yoga Science
which deals mainly, though not exclusively,
with the evolution of the physical body
with the object of making it the most perfect
and efficient instrument of expression,
and of experience, for the Divine Man within.
