18 Aug Dr. Jayadeva on ‘Ahar, Vihar, Achar, Vichar’
The topic for the Hindi Satsang on Sunday, 18th August, 2013 was ‘Ahar, Vihar, Achar, Vichar.’
Following is the transcript of the speech made by Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra on the topic.
Listen to the Audio:
“These are the basic thoughts. The food that we eat, recreation, our behaviour and the kind of thinking. We get lost into just food and pleasure. There are processes you know that increase your weight. Sometimes persons lead to bad temper, easily angry, so joy of living is not available. We need not make everybody laugh all the time, but at least we should be mild mannered and accept people and move away from them at the right time. But overload of food and drinks, its spoils the whole thing. Now in yoga we are talking of disguise of balance – a balanced state of mind. We are not able to give attention to that. Our attention is on unbalanced condition. Excitement, anger, show; the very purpose living and enjoying it is missed. Yoga is a very good science. It teaches us all the educative things – life, living, meaning of life and things like that. So while we are coming to yoga, let us not get lost in just eating and enjoying. Let us see how we are living – living part of life.”
– Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
