Editorial
In the seventies andearly eighties, Binduwas published inDanish, and towardsthe end of that perioda few issues were also published in English andSwedish. This winter we began publishingthe magazine again in4 languages, German,English, Danish andSwedish - and havereceived a lot of positivefeedback. The articles inthe previous issue haveinspired many to contactus.A former yogastudent felt like learningto meditate, when heread the article
On theability to experience
.The description of howto use one’s awarenessand extend it into theimmediate surroundingsand experience themand oneself more clearlyinspired him. He didthe experiment withoutreally expecting anything and wastherefore surprised by the instantaneouseffect it had, despite its simplicity.In this issue we print a letter froma student in Stockholm, who wrote tous after reading the articles on
nosecleansing 
and
headstand

Yoga is some-thing in it self, we liketo call it
a tool for theart of living 
. Throughouthistory yoga has beenused at various timesand in various cultures by people all over theworld. Today the interestin yoga is greatest inEurope, North and SouthAmerica, Australia and New Zealand.In Denmark, a few years ago, a studywas carried out concerning the number of yoga students attending eveningschools. It was discovered that everyyear between 50,000 and 70.000 studentsattended yoga classes around the countryeach season. Over a 10 year period thatmeans at least 10% of a population of 5million get to know some form of yoga.There is practically one yoga teacher inevery small town and hundreds in the bigcities.If one maintains that people become

Hindus by practising yoga, one could just as easily claim that athletes, andeveryone participating and watching theOlympic games, worships the Greek gods. We know that athletics originatedin ancient Greece, where it was carriedout in honour of the gods. One might ask with a certain irony: Why do they carrythat ame from Mount Olympus everyfourth year, are they some kind of sect?!
- I haven’t changed a bitsince I started...
It is our experience that yoga inuences body, mind and feelings. Yoga is aboutexploring your abilities, about gainingreal creativity, energy and concentration,about becoming your own authority anddeveloping an independent relationship
