"The mind is continuously busy. What happens when the mind doesn't think? Who's going to imagine that? That is a higher state. Then special realization comes. Otherwise the mind is thinking of anything and that is how it keeps us busy. So the final stages in yoga is when the mind stops, and just pure awareness is what remains."

"We all understand the philosophy that the material world continuously undergoes a change and it's a change we do not enjoy. We are unable to fathom the idea that a child that loved me yesterday, does not want to speak to me today or that a couple that spent so much time with each other in the initial years have no time for each other today due to different priorities. Let's accept that the world will change and any likes / dislikes that I have are my problem. At the end of the day, my inability to change / adapt myself with the changing times will harm me, make me redundant / unwanted.

Listen to the audio:Check this out on ChirbitQ. How to deal with nagging wife? Dr. J: Well, if it has come before you, accept it. If she is a person who nags, accept it. Smt. H: When the wife is nagging and telling you to do something, do it. Because you are not doing it, she has to tell you again and again. Then you call her a nagging wife. Why can't you listen and do it? Secondly, try and praise your wife and say something good about her. If she will be happy with you, she would leave you be and not nag.Q. My husband says 'You are always wrong.' What to do?

17th August 2013 - Saturday - Om "The world is not specially created for us. In fact its the other way around, we create our world. There are some who are very happy in their life, who does that? See individuals create an approach, some are jovial , some are otherwise, it is for our own interest. If we don't build up a particular kind of an approach which we generally like to do, life is flowing, watch- and experience. I don't know if it is a very difficult proposition."18th August 2013 - Sunday - Ahar, Vihar, Achar, Vichar

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute.Chapter 1, Sutra 46Patanjali Yoga Sutra 1.45Ta-Eva-Sabijah-SamadhihTa: these, those, they Eva: only Sabijah: with seed Samadhih: deep absorption of meditation These Are The Samadhis With Seed (Having An Object For Meditation)Listen to the audio:Check this out on ChirbitDr. Jayadeva Yogendra:
"So we are on the 46th Sutra. These are about 'Samadhis'. We use only one word 'Samadhi', but there are so many types. They could be gross- some definite object, or they could be subtle- towards ideas. And the mind has to be concentrating for long, and the knowledge that is gathered is very special. In these Samadhis, there are four kinds; whether I want to go into deep depths and understand the essence.

"Every human is different, therefore it is necessary for each of us to find out for ourselves how we can live a healthy life. Health is wealth. We should live our lives keeping in mind our age, our limitations and our behaviour with others. Ultimately we are social animals and are dependent on each other for everything, directly or indirectly. Yet, since we are so very different from each other, we have to take extreme care of how we deal with others. Inspite of an arranged matrimonial match between families with similar cultural and educational backgrounds, each family member lives differently and is unique.

Listen to the audio:Check this out on ChirbitQ. What is neutral thinking? Please elaborate. Dr. J: Being unbalanced is dangerous. You are hungry, but being hungry you lose yourself and overeat and there mistakes occur and this goes on. We sometimes are living only for eating and drinking. This upsets our schedule, our diet. Yoga talks about balanced state. We must maintain a balanced state and do the right thing at the right time which we are unable to do. We easily get drawn, lost, forgetful. I don’t know whether this is thought by you, the subject of overeating? No? You are just smiling. These things do happen and it is then that mistakes happen. You see, Diabetes and all such diseases are a result of wrong eating. Later on we are in a very bad condition, in the last stages, we have to watch what we are doing. We can save ourselves but we just can’t control.

10th August 2013 - Saturday - Perseverance "In yoga, there is the distracted mind and the steady mind. The distracted mind doesn't allow us any progress, we simply get lost. We start with great ideas, but on the way temptations, diverse interests, they come in and as a result the object is left off and the unnecessary ideas stay back. That's how we have all those stories also, a man goes with some noble ideas, but on the way he gets lost. And this is not something that happens somewhere at the end, this is there right from the start. See as a beginner in yoga, this is like a game of chess and they finish us off, till it is enough and we say 'I can't carry on', because the material interests are very strong. So this is the point that has been made out, I don't know how you take it. "11th August 2013 - Sunday - Are we spiritual?
