Yoga, in its broadest sense, includes a belief in the permanent divine light of awareness. It promotes kindness and selflessness and less attachment to material things. With the greeting Namaste, we say that the inner light within me acknowledges the inner light within you.
Nicolai Bachman speaks about the relationship between the “unmanifest” nature of the inner light with the manifest world of our senses, and how the inner light can affect how we live in the world. He notes that the more time we spend in contact with our inner light, the more kind and compassionate we become.
