Listen to the audio:
Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra:
“These are ‘Parikarmas,‘ various activities that can help in quietening the mind, settling the mind. Persons who are disinterested, if you can imagine such individuals and think about them, that can also generate a certain, peace, quiet and steadiness. Yogis of course have this temperament, they have no interest, and yet they are there. Madhavadasji had no interest in anything and yet his presence helped the founder to learn yoga and to cultivate this attitude. So these are alternate techniques, to help the mind and to become steady.”
