Yoga, as a 'science' of achieving this transformation of finite human into the infinite One, has to be recognized as something intrinsically Indian. Yoga has been called a living fossil. It has had five thousand years of glorious history. It belongs to the earliest heritage of India's humanity. The Indian liberation teachings  as the great Yogas of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism and so on.
