Since ages, this land has seen many Yog\u012bs who have been great spiritual masters and who have lit the light of wisdom in mankind through their extraordinary contributions. This land has always treated those Yog\u012bs as the embodiments of the Supreme and followed their footsteps. But with the passage of time, the inclination towards spirituality has declined in the people due to many reasons. Nowadays the term \u2018Yog\u012b\u2019 is as familiar as the term \u2018Yoga\u2019, and when heard, it stimulates a kind of mystical perspective in our minds with multiple conclusions. Who is a Yog\u012b? What are his qualities? What is his lifestyle? And how can one become a Yogi? Our ancient scriptures are the sources where we find the answers to all these queries. In the Bhagavad G\u012bt\u0101, Lord K\u1e5b\u1e63\u1e47a says: \u0905\u0928\u093e\u0936\u094d\u0930\u093f\u0924\u0903 \u0915\u0930\u094d\u092e\u092b\u0932\u0902 \u0915\u093e\u0930\u094d\u092f\u0902 \u0915\u0930\u094d\u092e \u0915\u0930\u094b\u0924\u093f \u092f\u0903\u0964 \u0938 \u0938\u0902\u0928\u094d\u092f\u093e\u0938\u0940 \u091a \u092f\u094b\u0917\u0940 \u091a \u0928 \u0928\u093f\u0930\u0917\u094d\u0928\u093f\u0930\u094d\u0928 \u091a\u093e\u0915\u094d\u0930\u093f\u092f\u0903\u0965 an\u0101\u015brita\u1e25 karmaphala\u1e41 k\u0101ry\u1e41 karma karate ya\u1e25\u0964 sa sa\u1e41ny\u0101s\u012b ca yog\u012b ca na nirgnirna c\u0101kriya\u1e25\u0965 One who performs his prescribed duties by renouncing the fruits of his actions is both a Sa\u1e41ny\u0101s\u012b and a Yog\u012b, but not someone who has merely given up performing sacrifices or other prescribed duties. People in general have a misconception about a Yog\u012b or a Sa\u1e41ny\u0101s\u012b, that he is someone who does not shoulder any responsibilities and who renounces all activities. But here, Lord K\u1e5b\u1e63\u1e47a upholds the true practice of Dharma. He says that no one should ever discard his prescribed duties. Everyone should execute his duties with utmost devotion. Among the doers of duties, a true Yog\u012b is one who discharges his duties for the duty\u2019s sake and is in no way attached to the fruits of his actions. The Lord further asserts that the practice of Yoga is not different from Sa\u1e41ny\u0101sa, as no one becomes a Yog\u012b without renouncing Sa\u1e45kalpa (selfish desires). In his Yoga S\u016btras, Mahar\u1e63i Pata\u00f1jali describes the means to attain Yoga, which are Abhy\u0101sa (practice) and Vair\u0101gya (renunciation). Lord K\u1e5b\u1e63\u1e47a describes the Yog\u012b who has attained the peaks of Yoga as: \u092f\u0926\u093e \u0939\u093f \u0928\u0947\u0928\u094d\u0926\u094d\u0930\u093f\u092f\u093e\u0930\u094d\u0925\u0947\u0937\u0941 \u0928 \u0915\u0930\u094d\u092e\u0938\u094d\u0935\u0928\u0941\u0937\u091c\u094d\u091c\u0924\u0947\u0964 \u0938\u0930\u094d\u0935\u0938\u0919\u094d\u0915\u0932\u094d\u092a\u0938\u0902\u0928\u094d\u092f\u093e\u0938\u0940 \u092f\u094b\u0917\u093e\u0930\u0942\u0922\u0938\u094d\u0924\u0926\u094b\u091a\u094d\u092f\u0924\u0947\u0965 yad\u0101 hi nendriy\u0101rthe\u1e63u na karmasvanu\u1e63ajjate\u0964 sarvasa\u1e45kalpasa\u1e43ny\u0101s\u012b yog\u0101r\u016b\u1e0dhastadocyate\u0965 When one is free from attachments to the sense objects as well as the actions, and has renounced all selfish desires, he is said to have ascended the peaks of Yoga.
