There are four major yogis who I admire: Krishna, Buddha, Sankara, and Jesus (Yeshua, in Hebrew and Aramaic). Each of these men began life as normal individuals and through their sacred yoga practice became fully realized yogis, and they can help us in our path too. The diagram above details my personal view on who they are, now, existentially, as realized yogis. They can help us in our material life as well as help us in our daily practice. The energy and being of a yogi extends all the way from the Absolute Plane down to the Physical, Material Plane. The realized yogi is a true bridge for the common man, between this realm and the Supreme, Absolute realm. Namaste.
