27th January 2013 - Monday - Shukla karma "So we say 'Good morning', but do we really wish good for the others? Probably sometimes we don't. So 'good actions'. Apparently we do many good actions, but what is the motive behind? See, good actions are one kind of actions, also bad actions are there, and sometimes bad actions are done with good intentions; there are mixed intentions- good and bad, another kind- not good and not bad, so we are just discussing about the good intentions. Intentions which are done with that kind of a mind and also show some good results, that would be considered as a right action, which we often don't do. So here are the divisions which we shall discuss." 28th January 2013 - Tuesday - Bhagavad Gita (6.15 - 6.16)

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute. Chapter 2, Sutra 10 Patanjali Yoga Sutra 2.10 Te Pratiprasavaheyah Suksmah Te: these Pratiprasava: involution Heyah: to be overcome, reduced Suksmah: subtle These Subtle Ones (Afflictions) Are Avoided By Resolving Them In Their Origin   Commentary taken from "The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali - stray thoughts of Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra and Hansaji" "The final destruction of the Klesas is as if through making the Citta incapable of supporting them. In its gross form, the mind is active and capable of agitation. The more one remains in this external animal form, the more powerful are the Klesas.

15th December 2013 - Sunday - Positivity "It is certain now that if we bring positive thoughts in the mind, we experience happiness and Ananda (bliss), then there will be no sadness in the mind. This method is simple and straight forward. But we are not able to do this. If you will notice, right from the morning we keep thinking wrong things. Note down what you think during the whole day. If something happens, those kind of thoughts begin and by evening we are scared. This is a wrong training given to the mind. If we are learning yoga, then we need to bring in enthusiastic and blissful thoughts. The technique is very simple. Bring happiness and bliss in life and automatically the wrong kinds of thoughts will reduce. Such a simple technique.” 16th December 2013 - Monday - Vanaprastha

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute. Chapter 2, Sutra 9 Patanjali Yoga Sutra 2.9 Svarasavahi-Vidusah-Api-Tatha-Arudhah-Abhinivesah Svarasavahi: flowing on its own momentum Vidusah: wise person Api: even Tatha: the same way Arudhah: firmly established Abhinivesah: fear of death, clinging to the life of Flowing On Its Own Nature, Love Of Life Exists Even In The Wise Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra: “So we are discussing about ‘Abhinievsa’ , the most difficult of the Kleshas. The sense of ‘I’. Even the wisest person can’t get over it. You see, he has to bring the ‘I’ in any discussion, any claims; he can’t cleverly escape that.”

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute. Chapter 2, Sutra 8 Patanjali Yoga Sutra 2.7 Dukha-Anusayi-Dvesah Dukha: pain, sorrow, suffering Anusayi: sequential attraction to, closely following Dvesah: aversion, hatred Aversion Is That Which Dwells Upon Pain. Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra: “Pleasure makes us run after it. We love it. We want more and more of it. As soon as pain comes- we run away, we don’t like it. This is the cycle. We have to learn to take both of them together- that we can’t do. We are always on the wait and that is why there is so much suffering. That is what this sutra tells us.” Smt. Hansaji J. Yogendra: "These are all sutras about the Klesas which are vitiating factors, which are going to cause pain and suffering in life, something which we have to work hard to remove from our system. We don't blame anybody for causing pain to us. It is our inherent tendencies - Klesas from within, which make us take pain. And so keeping this in mind, the entire approach in life should be to wok on yourself and to see that the self becomes free from these weakening factors, these factors which can cause nothing else but harm.
