6. Vidhiyog - Law and discipline

Discipline is the first and foremost essential condition in the practice of yoga. It is equally applicable to social body. Law itself is like a living body. Therefore, Law it self should be disciplined. There are bodies among bodies - small to smaller and great to greater. Greatest has no limits.
I have created a verse in sanskrit thus:
यथा पिंडे तथा ब्रह्मांडे पूर्वैरपि कथिता बुधैः।
तत्वार्थ वेदिनां तु वसुधैव शरीरकम ॥
Thus for the Vidhiyogi entire world is not only a family, but a body। Vidhiyogi would perceive the entire world as his own body. No one is stranger for him. His state of mind would be like this:

सर्वभूतानि चात्मनि
ईक्षते योगयुक्तात्मा सर्वत्र समदर्शन: गीता, /२९॥

"VidhiYog" may be translated as yoga of Law.--- In a civil society Law is supreme, it is king of the kings. ----It is super administrator governing all administrators.-- Law is perfectly self disciplined expecting all to be disciplined. --- It requires balance in all spheres of life. Function of yoga is to balance the systems of body; function of Law is to balance the systems of society.--- whole world is like a single living body.---this theory is not new, we have age old theory of "yatha pinde tatha brahmande".---one who may control himself, he can govern others. command over others is proportionate to your self control. Countries who have greater command, have stronger Law abiding culture.------.

Further, Vidhiyog is an approach to Law that tends to add or unite the people and eradicate the differences. I want to create an atmosphere of creative interpretation.
