Definition - What does Arhatic Yoga mean?
Arhatic yoga is a system for spiritual growth that was devised to allow the practitioner to evolve their soul more quickly in order to offer better service to Earth and mankind.
The process of Arhatic yoga involves asanas, meditation, breathing techniques and spiritual practices that have been blended together into a single system.
It brings together elements from Raja yoga, Jnana yoga, Bhakti yoga as well as other methods. This has led to it also being called the “yoga of synthesis.”
Yogapedia explains Arhatic Yoga
Master Choa Kok Sui is credited with the creation of Arhatic yoga. He has stated that purification is necessary before meditation can be practiced.
This type of yoga is made up of five pillars (devotion, purification, meditation, service/tithing and study) and five virtues, with 14 levels one may progress through.
The name of this practice comes from the Sanskrit arhat, which means “highly evolved person” or “saint.” Essentially, it is someone who has successfully refined their emotions and their soul to become a more spiritually developed person.
