In the form of the rise of the possibility of human life, it can be reached to God and in the form of a fall, the culprit can be animals or vampires. Yoga is going to regulate the attitude towards life, its shape and nature. The ulti­mate goal of yoga is to understand yoga as a means to reach altitude and help every human being to reach the lev­el of higher conscious­ness. This conscious­ness has manifested in various forms and in historical form ev­eryone from Hanuman to Arjuna has been an extension of this con­sciousness. Yoga is the attainment of the right purpose of life.”
