To listen to audio recordings of Talks on yoga by Dr. Jayadeva visit: www.chirbit.com/theyogainstitute10th 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?
