Yoga and the Cosmos
Yoga links the human being with the rest of creation. In that sense Yoga has a cosmic dimension. The body is not only something external--within the body there lies the world of the imagination. It is in this sense that we might understand an inner landscape. Yogic postures show us that the body is like a tree, or a mountain, or some animal like a snake or lion. Here the posture is related to the form of the tree.
