Volume 4: "Yoga has been defined as union, but before we can experience union we have to connect. Connection is the definition of yoga for the new millennium. Yoga is not taking a different direction. It is the human perception that has to take the appropriate step. Yoga is an experiment to change our perception and convert our understanding into applied wisdom. Yoga gives us the awareness that it is now time to act and take responsibility for ourselves and others."

The fourth volume of Yoga Sadhana Panorama presents discourses and satsangs given by Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati in France, Greece, Wales, Spain, Australia and India in 2000, 2001 and 2002.

"Yoga aims to improve the quality of life so that we become aware of ourselves and our potentials and begin to live them. The ultimate goal of life is not enlightenment but mind management. When inner harmony is experienced, yoga becomes a lifestyle in which we connect with others in a spirit of service and compassion."
