Author(s): Dr Anamika Sarmah

Abstract: This article explores the possibilities of practical as well universal implication of Yama in human life. As a dynamic method towar a happy and meaningful life, Yama, without limiting its boundary among Yogi, Spiritual leader and sannyasi should reach to the common man. The Yama constitute one of the eight paths of yoga philosophy known as Astangamarga. The Five moral restraints namely Ahimsa, satya, Asteya, Brahmacarya and Aparigraha are called the Yamas. Inter connected with each other, these five principles are often misinterpreted resulting in the wrong application a today's world, these Yamas have not been yet taken into consideration as a profound source of happier, more harmonious and secure life. With a more subtle approach, when one can incorporate Yama in daily life, it will surely lead the way to change; the change from a chaotic world and indiscipline life to a better world and peaceful atmosphere.
