Mock Practice Test-5
Read each of the following passages and answer the items that follow. Your answers to these items should be based on the passages only.
The Yoga system is divided into two principal parts—Hatha and Raja Yoga. Hatha Yoga deals principally with the physiological part of man with a view to establish his health and train his will. The processes prescribed to arrive at this end are so difficult that only a few resolute souls go through all the stages of its practice. Many have failed and some have died in the attempt. It is therefore strongly denounced by all the philosophers. The most illustrious Shankaracharya has remarked in his treatise called Aparokshanubhuti that “the system of Hatha Yoga was intended for those whose worldly desires are not pacified or uprooted.”
Which among the following statements about ‘Hath yoga‘ is not true?
A Hath yoga focuses only on training a person’s ‘will‘.
B Only a few people have been able to go through all stages.
C The practice is not much supported by philosophers.
D None of these
