Q. What is the the definition of spirituality in yoga? Dr. J: Simplicity and hard work. Smt. H: And in whatever work you do, keep in mind that you are doing the work of God, or that you are not the doer, you are just an instrument in doing the job. This body, mind and intelligence are used to do the work. So the 'Me' and 'Mine' and 'I did' should go, then only can God be experienced.

Q. We do good things in a happy way, yet from within, we want a word of appreciation. Will we ever be able to get spiritual?

A special Satsang was held on Sunday 20th July 2014 in memory of Dr. Patanjali Jayadeva Yogendra's (15th July 1975 - 24th July 2012) birth as well as death anniversary. Dr. Patanjali was the son of Dr. Jayadeva and Smt. Hansaji Yogendra. He was the Secretary and Treasurer of The Yoga Institute, Assistant Editor of the monthly journal, Yoga and Total Health and also taught Samkhya philosophy to the students of the teacher training course at the Institute.

In his honour, an English Satsang on 'Spirituality in Today's Times' was conducted. It began with a beautiful presentation on Dr. Patanjali's life and personality. Followed by this, some Sadhakas of The Yoga Institute who were also friends of Dr. Patanjali, shared their memories with the audience. The teacher trainees then made an intresting presentation on the theme of the Satsang, which was followed by Dr. Jayadeva and Hansaji's thoughts on the same.

“I think the things were explained very well (in the Satsang). One thing is very clear that we don’t have to mix spirituality and materialism. Life is life and all these things (that were explained) are needed. And that is why it is said that we should practice the Purusharthas. Do your duty, earn money, have recreation and see to it that all the things we are doing are always with some purpose, understanding, some discipline to reach a better level of consciousness.

The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 11th August, 2013 was 'Are We Spiritual?.' Following is the transcript of the speech made by Smt. Hansaji Yogendra on the topic.

"We are unable to separate materialism and spiritualism in our lives. We have to live in this material world yet not be affected by it either positively or negatively. We shall be able to progress spiritually if we are able to lead our lives ourselves instead of being lead by other things / people.
