10th August 2013 - Saturday - Perseverance "In yoga, there is the distracted mind and the steady mind. The distracted mind doesn't allow us any progress, we simply get lost. We start with great ideas, but on the way temptations, diverse interests, they come in and as a result the object is left off and the unnecessary ideas stay back. That's how we have all those stories also, a man goes with some noble ideas, but on the way he gets lost. And this is not something that happens somewhere at the end, this is there right from the start. See as a beginner in yoga, this is like a game of chess and they finish us off, till it is enough and we say 'I can't carry on', because the material interests are very strong. So this is the point that has been made out, I don't know how you take it. " 11th August 2013 - Sunday - Are we spiritual?

3rd August 2013 - Saturday - Mistakes "See the idea is a standard idea, if you keep repeating, it gets strengthened. See now, learning yoga, we hardly repeat, read the sutra once till the end. If we can cultivate this habit that after we read something we again go over it, possibly once or twice, then the idea will sink. But we are lazy and we don't give importance to yoga sutras so much, that is our problem." 4th August 2013 - Sunday - Yoga: a medical therapy

27th July 2013 - Saturday - Health "They say 'health is wealth', but honestly does any one of us behave that way? We take it for granted. Do what we like, enjoy, and then we're at the doctors clinic and that is the continuous cycle. That 'prevention' doesn't exist and that is our whole life story. So ultimately by the time we are fifty and sixty we are in a very bad condition. And yoga keeps on shouting at the top of its voice- ' Please mind yourself, mind your own mind , your body and the way that you live.' But do we follow it? We are too busy in enjoyment, things that come before and that, is the story of our life." 28th July 2013 - Sunday - Maintaining Balance

7th July 2013 - Sunday - Difficulties in the Study of Yoga “We have difficulties in life in everything we do, because we are not clear in it. What is it that we usually want? Whether it is clarity, peace of mind, money, pleasure, we are not clear. So we succeed in one area – make money, but suffer in another area – getting peace. And it goes on. I think gaining some clarity is very necessary. And even little time spent in that everyday can help us. We don’t need to spend too much time doing Puja and meditation but allowing the mind to settle down, to become peaceful and in that condition searching out people who can share. Small efforts of this kind may in the end help in deciding what is the right thing to do. So let us invest our time in a correct manner and come to know what is really important.” 8th July 2013 - Monday - Asmita

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute. Chapter 1, Sutra 40 Patanjali Yoga Sutra 1.40 Paramanu-Paramamahattva-Antah-Asya- Vasikarah Paramanu: from the minutest Paramamahattva: largeness, magnitude Anah: end, extending to Asya: of this, of his or hers Vasikarah: mastery, power When The Mind Develops The Power Of Stabilizing On The Smallest Size As Well As On The Greatest One , Then The Mind Comes Under Control. Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra: "We are talking about concentration. When we can concentrate on subtle things, atoms, infra atoms, then we get control. Mind becomes steady, Vasanas (latent desires) reduce, there is complete control on mind. Then there is understanding. It is not easy to reach this state. Remaining steady and reducing the Vasanas is difficult. The mind keeps running, old desires surface. When we reach that state then special powers come to us and the steady mind can do a lot of things.
