22nd June 2014 - Sunday - Aparigraha "Aparigraha means to avoid hoarding things. We tend to keep collecting many things. In the beginning, it doesn’t seem much. But slowly they increase to such an extent that they fill up cupboards. So we need to think about whether this is right.”23rd June 2014 - Monday - Abhinivesha "This self idea is very strong. As soon as you say mine, then we are attached, then we worry about it and we can't get free. This is what the statement means."

14th June 2014 - Saturday - God Decides “God decides. This is the theme. Humans think but it doesn't really finally end according to our thinking. We make decisions, they can go wrong, and make one decision that becomes correct. So if you can have that as a motto in life, leave it to God. We must set a certain trend but not pursue it too much. Set the trend and leave it. Ultimately, God will decide. This is a very simple, standard way of thinking from very early times in India.”15th June 2014 - Sunday - Satya (Truth) “I would not speak untruth, so I would not lie. And that would help.”

The Yoga Institute held a special police camp on World Yoga Day, 21st June 2014, to help spread the knowledge of better living among the backbone of the city, the police force. Our police force works hard to maintain law and order in the city and it is imperative that they be in good health and have an alert, aware and balanced mind.

The special camp began with an enlightening session on physical health conducted by the teachers of The Yoga Institute. Correct posture, importance of a healthy spine, simple and effective Asanas to be practiced daily and correct routine were introduced to the officers.

Hansaji J. Yogendra:

"There are two things - Sva Shakti is Prakriti and Swami Shakti is Purusha. Basically Purusha has lost his identity. He is entangled with Prakriti and so now he doesn't know what he is. Now, to understand 'Who Am I?' I should go through some process. So Prakriti is showing the world and Purusha is watching (Drashta) and while watching, some wisdom comes. His attention suddenly goes to himself and then he realizes that he is different from Prakriti. And slowly that realization dawns, that knowledge comes. Right now all these things are there because of ignorance, then once knowledge comes, the Purusha is freed from Prakriti.

The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 15th June, 2014 was 'Satya.' (Truth).Following is the transcript of the speech made by Smt. Hansaji Yogendra on the topic.

“Dr. Jayadeva gave a very clear message that a strong decision has to come to the mind that I am not going to speak lies and untruth. You don't need more explanation here, it's just a question of decision. The more words we use, the more there is wrong interpretation. When we talk more than what is required, usually it ends in untruth because its leads to misinterpretation. People who are on the path of truth would speak very less.

8th June 2014 - Sunday - Faith “There is a saying in Sanskrit, "Shraddha-mayo 'yam purushah." It means that a human being is made of Shraddha / faith. The more the faith, the greater is the person. We have little faith. Real faith is never in some material thing or to attain something, it is only in God. He is behind everything that is happening. But we are not able to have such faith, so our faith has no meaning. There should be no vested interest behind faith. Faith is peace. When a person is peaceful and wise and thinks accordingly, he has real faith. We are unable to reach such a state and so our faith is weak and many times we do not get certain things. Keep faith and you will automatically get things.”9th June 2014 - Monday - Avidhya "Wrong knowledge as right knowledge, that is our way. We are unable to get through this mistake. We are not able to establish what is right and what is wrong. See what yoga does, is that it finally separates out these two and as a result sets out the course of rightness and this brings satisfaction. But we are hardly able to understand, and persist in the wrong way of thinking, believing, acting and living."
