Accepting is one of the most important foundation principles of yoga. It means to neither pull too hard towards wants or wishes of the mind-field, nor to push away so much. It means not getting caught up in the coloring in the mind called attractions or aversions. The practice and process is called non-attachment, or vairagya.
While it means accepting ourselves at all of the levels, it can at first be most useful to focus on accepting our bodies and personalities. Sometimes we can be so unconsciously working to not experience our bodies, personalities, thoughts, and emotions that we do not even see the need for understanding any more, nor any need to train ourselves.
However, when we come to the point in life that we want to explore within, to take the inner journey, we come to see the importance of accepting the realities of ourselves the way we are, so that we can then understand and effect change.
Gradually this acceptance, or non-attachment expands to all the levels and aspects of our being. This acceptance comes as a result of gently observing ourselves, and sets the stage for greater understanding and self-training.

We employ the classical approaches of Raja, Jnana, Karma, and Bhakti
Yoga, as well as Hatha, Kriya, Kundalini, Laya, Mantra, Nada, Siddha,
and Tantra Yoga. Meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer
finally converge into a unified force directed towards the final
stage, piercing the pearl of wisdom called bindu, leading to the
