The Latent Impression Born Of Such Knowledge Is Opposed To The Formation Of Other Latent Impressions
Listen to the audio:
Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra:
“These are powerful ideas of Indian thinking. Variably we remember them, talk about them, but don’t follow them. ‘Actions done – leave the reaction’, this statement is very easy but we don’t follow it. Actions can be of various kinds – emotional, verbal, physical. While carrying out these actions, we are in an emotional state and act without considering the reactions. The reactions do come in one form or the other. That is what a Yogi should know.”
Smt. Hansaji J. Yogendra:
“Here we are talking about Samskar. We do some actions and then face consequences. When we do any action it forms an impression into our personality – then it forms Samskar. Our nature – our habits – our automatic thinking in that fashion. The Samskaras that we have created earlier pulls us back. They bind us, we have to be very alert while doing any actions. When actions are done with a balanced state then they don’t bind us. We may practice all the Samadhi techniques, but these Samskaras will become hurdles. Somewhere deep down we are attracted, deep down we have a pleasure-loving personality.”
