Raja Yoga is one of the four Yogas of Hinduism (the other being Jnana, Bhakti, and Karma). As a meditative method, Raja Yoga seeks to dissolve these mental barriers in order to further one's acquaintance with Reality, and control the life-forces of the Universe to better realize the universal Self.
