Yoga masters have long known that the universe is an ocean of vibrations. Some have maintained that even the ultimate reality is a state of continuous vibration — but a vibration that exceeds the three dimensions of space. Some quantum physicists call this entity a holomovement. The Sanskrit word for vibration is spanda (pronounced spun-dah). According to Yoga, the human body and mind are constantly vibrating. However, this vibration is more or less disharmonious and out of sync with the supervibration of the ultimate reality (which we cover in Chapters 1 and 21). This disharmony creates unhappiness, alienation, and a sense of being separate from the physical world. The purpose of Yoga is to remove this disharmony and synchronize the body and mind with the ultimate reality, restoring joy and the sense of being connected with everyone and everything.
