24th February 2014 – Monday – Ahimsa

“We are on Ahimsa -not to kill- but then this is a very complicated word. Gandhiji took up ahimsa as his weapon, but then killing didn’t happen. When killing the individual does not have evil intentions -it is done for duty- that we should not call as himsa. These are interpretations. The traditional yogi never bothered about causing any hurt. This was a different type of approach. We unfortunately can’t follow it. We have to consider whether we can follow these things in our day to day life“.

25th February 2014 – Tuesday – Bhagavad Gita (6.22 – 23)

“So we are on the sixth chapter, 22nd -23rd verse. It tells us about this final stage. If you are once established in that, there is nothing like pain and naturally that is the highest. The pain idea goes away and the yogi is free from any distraction. Naturally that is considered as the highest. There is nothing that is there now to attract, the attraction is over. No higher pleasure or gain. No problems about defeat in wars. That is considered as the highest.”

27th February 2014 – Thursday – Satya

“See we talk about satya– Conveying what we have received correctly. In fact there doesn’t seem to be any difficulty, but the fact is we never speak the truth. We always give twists. And we do it in a very clever way, so that no one can find out. Most of our transactions go on, on that basis. See the problem is that we are cheating ourselves. We don’t try to note down what has happened. Even before we want to convey, there is already some mental trap to make the other person to understand as you understand. In this, problems come, because we don’t want to explain things as they happened, we want to only say things as they should be appearing to have happened. Now this is a common practice in all areas, whether it is judiciary, whether it is business. Very rarely a person speaks out exactly whatever is the fact and that is very unfortunate because the person himself doesn’t know at the end what was the fact. It is all make believe. So we’ll discuss an important topic- truth- satya”.

28th February 2014 – Friday – Yoga Sutra 2.39

“We are on Ahimsa -not to kill- but then this is a very complicated word. Gandhiji took up ahimsa as his weapon, but then killing didn’t happen. When killing the individual does not have evil intentions -it is done for duty- that we should not call as himsa. These are interpretations. The traditional yogi never bothered about causing any hurt. This was a different type of approach. We unfortunately can’t follow it. We have to consider whether we can follow these things in our day to day life.”
