“Asteya comes in Yamas. Yamas are those things which are natural instincts. If a person is not aware, he will naturally do anything for his own benefit. This is what the sage Patanjali has said we must grow above. A thief will steal. He will make sure no one is looking, but he will steal. He will use all his intelligence to steal without being caught.

Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. (Referring to the Mangal Geet sung at the end of every Satsang)Should we then reinforce this message "Sab Mangal Hai" ('Everything is auspicious') instead of "Sab Mangal Ho" ('May everything be auspicious')? Smt. H: Let's be very practical and clear that right now, everything is not 'Mangal.' So first let's have the feeling that 'Let some Mangal happen.' Once it happens, then things will definitely be different. Right now, every human has more and more desire and is not at all content. That is why we have this prayer that says 'Let everything be good.' And so that goodness starts from within and you see good all around, that is when it will become "Sab Mangal Hai." Q. If you acquire some good knowledge from a certain source, can you share it with others without taking permission from that source?

18th May 2013 - Saturday - Way of Life "There is a very good sentiment expressed in our in Indian culture, "Sarve Jana Sukhinah Santu"- May everyone be happy. It is a universal statement. Constantly feeling that way, talking, acting, doing. Now, rarely do we have these feelings, we do say, 'Good morning', but that is the end. To carry it further, to think well, to do something, this we are not doing. It is worth considering, whether we can maintain this kind of thought all the time."

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “In yoga Steya (stealing) is one of our intrinsic natural tendencies, just like Himsa (violence), and lying. If we get something, we take it even if it is not needed. If we find an unclaimed thousand rupee note on the road, we will take it and consider it as a gift from God. This tendency is there even in animals and insects. If an ant is carrying a piece of sugar and we shoo it away, it leaves the sugar and goes away. Another ant will come and take that piece of sugar. However, a human being can at least think and know that he doesn’t need something he has found, that he has enough. This is only possible when the person has some philosophy or understanding. A very wise mind in needed to think this way.

Listen to the audio:
Check this out on Chirbit Q. Why do we get greedy? Dr. J: That is our natural tendency. A child also is greedy, even though very young. Smt. H: We are born with ignorance. And with ignorance, we develop wrong value systems. And this greed is also one of those things. Q. How to conquer fear of a bad future? Dr. J: Consult an astrologer. Smt. H: Why are we breaking our heads by thinking about the future? Let us learn to be in the present. Right now, the present is in my hands, let me work hard and make myself better and better Stop thinking about the future. Plan, but live in the present. Don’t allow your mind to run too much into something which is not there, something you don’t know about.
