The concept of faith is the closest thing that Western culture has to an equivalent for shraddha.
In addition, Shraddha is a Hindu ceremony that is carried out in order to honor a deceased ancestor. This is seen as both a religious rite and social responsibility.
By understanding what their shraddha is, a yogi can understand that their life journey is the correct one for them and build up an unshakable faith in themselves and their decisions. It may also help the individual choose a yoga style and a set of spiritual practices that will be the most meaningful for their chosen life path.
