Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. We are taught that we should either talk positive and good or keep quiet. But if we are keeping quiet, others take advantage of us. They make us do all the work because we don't say 'No' and they pass on their part of the work also on us. What should we do? Dr. J: Just observe the work and forget the rest. Don't think. Smt. H: Who says don't say 'No'? You can always say 'No'. And always take the responsibility with a question mark. Like I remember Dr. Jayadeva's grandfather, Founder's father. He was a school teacher and he was alone. His wife was no more. He used to go to the market to buy things. So on the way some neighbours would say, 'Kaka, you are going to market, get some lemons and coriander for us." And he would say, "If possible, I will bring." If suppose he has lots of luggage, he will not bring it. So this is how we can carry on; "If possible, I will do it." And if we can't at all, just say, "I wont be able to." Be clear, be truthful. And as far as his case was concerned, majority of the time, it was possible for him to bring it. The point is, learn to say 'No' and if you are doing it, do only how much you can in an allotted time. Don't extend the time of your work. Then it is okay, work. Nothing is wrong. Q. How to overcome gas problem the yoga way?

Check this out on Chirbit Q. In adverse situations, people have a tendency of becoming a victim of bad habits. How can this be avoided? Dr. J: Take a big foolscap paper and start writing from the morning the word ‘No, No, No…’ Smt. H: In adverse situations, it is imperative to stick to our healthy routines without slackening of our efforts. Eating, sleeping, walking and practising Asanas on time, singing, reading, writing something, etc. these healthy habits should be inculcated in daily routines. Adverse situations will come and go, you will remain strong, not weak. This is Tapa – being very strict with your time-table. Q. How to increase the strength of our mind and stop thinking about consequences during adverse situations?

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “Why should one do Tapa in yoga? Because sometimes a person becomes a slave of his weaknesses. As Dr. Jayadeva said, learn to say ‘no’ and mean it. What is not to be done, should not be done. But our determination wavers and we keep doing it. We are not able to develop our inner strength.
