05 Aug Saucha (Cleanliness)
|Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra|
“We take care of our outer cleanliness, but are negative from inside. This is why we suffer. The mind remains angry. We are not able to think correctly. The body and mind should remain pure from inside. We clean our house every day, in the same way we should clean ourselves internally. In yoga, Saucacomes under Niyama. We take care of the outside things, in the same way we keep doing this activity inside. We must always keep doing this till it becomes a habit.”
“Saucha is cleanliness. It is a very deep word. In yoga, it is the first Niyama. Sauca cannot be practiced externally all the time. We can’t keep the body clean always. Even a slightest breeze comes and you become unclean immediately. Our house also can’t be kept clean all the time. The main important thing is internal cleanliness.
