“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.

Following is the transcript of the Q & A between the audience and Smt. Hansaji J. Yogendra.

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?

“Dr. Jayadeva gave a very clear message that a strong decision has to come to the mind that I am not going to speak lies and untruth. You don't need more explanation here, it's just a question of decision. The more words we use, the more there is wrong interpretation. When we talk more than what is required, usually it ends in untruth because its leads to misinterpretation. People who are on the path of truth would speak very less.

The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 23rd March, 2014 was 'Yamas.' (Restraints) Following is the transcript of the Q & A between the audience and Smt. Hansaji J. Yogendra.
Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. May we say the truth even if our truth might hurt others? Smt. H: Truth is something which is seeing things as they are and conveying them as they are. If things are like this, it can never hurt others. But if we bring emotion into it, it hurts others. Suppose my mother has cancer and I have to tell her and if I speak truth, it may hurt her. But if I say blankly, that they say it is a cancer, still more tests are going on and whatever it is, we will do the needful. Then it may not disturb her. But if I start crying and get disturbed and say ‘What will happen to me after you go’ and all that, then that would hurt too much. So unfortunately, these emotions create the whole problem. Truth as it is, is very clinical, very simple, straight forward and we should be speaking truth. Q. Sometimes it takes a long time for the truth to uphold. How to keep patience till then?

The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 9th March, 2014 was 'Value System.' Following is the transcript of the speech made by Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra on the topic.

Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “When you know that something you are saying is false and wrong, you should not say that. But we have no courage. We have other considerations and so we have got into the habit of telling things that can help us in getting is out of a bad situation. So we have included a lot of untruth, cheating and what not. A man who speaks truth is a man with a conviction. He is not bothered whether a certain statement will help him or hurt him. He is just concerned with whatever is the fact and he will speak out the correct thing, the right thing, the truth. Now we have slowly come out of that and we keep on telling things that give us immediate benefits. All are untruth. And we are carrying on. But this has become a habit.

"We have to sit down and quietly think about 'What do I value in my life?' When we begin our life, we deal with situations according to the existing circumstances then, we take opportunities where we find them, following what others are doing blindly - if someone is lying or cheating to get rid of a situation, we do the same in a similar situation, thinking it is alright to do so if everyone is also doing the same. We follow what our parents do and how our siblings behave; we see and learn from the people around us and this is how we live our life. We forget that each of us is different. When I look closely at people, I see everyone running after happiness, let’s understand that happiness and pain flow together. Where there is happiness, there will be pain too. Therefore, yoga philosophy suggests we develop some clarity on how we want to live our lives. What should I give more importance to in my life? The importance should be given to that which helps me lead a better life today as compared to yesterday, or a better tomorrow as compared to today – this would be the path of self-development.
