Yoga Practices work first on  physical control. Once  physical non-violence mastered,  work on verbal non-violence. At the end comes the  control of the thoughts, moods and mental behaviour. First on Gross body then on subtle body


Before any thoughts, words, actions, it is important to think of the consequences. .Avoiding  mind agitation, will allow the spiritual forces to accumulate pranic energy, life forces , which can be used for  higher state of conscience  which in turn , will balance and harmonize lower state of conscience. Slowly getting installed in non-violence, You will be invaded by an ocean of kindness, gentleness, compassion, absence of fear  which will  conduct to blessings, serenity  and bliss.
