"Yoga talks about faith. When we use the words 'saints' and 'sages' what's most outstanding in their personality is their strong faith in God or Higher Reality. Once a person has faith, then all the fear, anxiety, tension, worry goes away because you are not running the whole show. Someone else whom we call higher reality or consciousness or God, etc. they are running the whole show.

"Today's topic is a little philosophical topic. It is a theory which tells us that we are structured of two things, one is Purusha (There are many words used for Purusha - consciousness, soul, God). To understand consciousness we have to become aware. The other part we are made of is Prakruti (matter). Matter is something which is changeful, gross and which has its own character. Three characters are continuously seen in matter and these are Sattvic, Rajasic and Tamasic characters. These are the three Gunas of Prakruti. Consciousness is awareness. Matter is useful only if consciousness is present. For example, in our body we have a soul and so the body (matter) is working and life goes on from childhood to old age and it undergoes changes.

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “This entire universe is functioning for this ‘Knower.’ Unfortunately, the object of this knowledge – the tables and chairs and houses and people, they occupy the central position and we are all after that. Even if the house is still good, what it’ll be in the end is not known. But we are not really working with the change. We are just caught up in different problems. And there is so much suffering. The simplest solution is look for the ‘Knower,’ the Purusha and not the object of knowledge i.e. Prakruti.”

The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 11th May, 2014 was 'Purusha and Prakruti.' 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. Please explain the terms Ishwar and Purusha. Smt. H: In yoga technology, Ishwar is known as Purusha Vishesha, that is a special Purusha, which means Purusha which is untouched by Kleshas, Purusha which is not doing any Karmas. So Ishwar doesn't want anything; Santosh (contentment) is one of God's qualities, Chaitanyamaya i.e. alive and alert, is Ishwar. He is omnipresent, omniscient and can do anything and He is all-knowing. You don't have to tell Him that I have this or that problem and to do something. God knows everything. So these are the basic qualities of God, but in yoga, God means special Purusha which is unaffected by Karmas. Q. How to avoid the outburst of emotions?

The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 6th April, 2014 was 'Stability Through Asanas.' Following is the transcript of the Q & A between the audience and Dr. Jayadeva and Smt. Hansaji J. Yogendra.
Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. Which Asanas and Pranayamas help to overcome anxiety and fear? Dr. J: You see, just merely saying 'this Asana and that Asana' is not correct. There should be attitude. Smt. H: It doesn't work like that. What works is the attitude. So when the person is under depression and with some anxiety, the person should be doing some activities in life. And in activities, one part is simple Asanas. Walking is important, playing with children is important, doing even some simple work successfully is important. So we have to organize our whole life and all these problems will be taken care of. Q. If the body is not flexible in the early morning, why are all the yoga sessions advised to be done in early morning?

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “Asanas, we do. But then, the attitude which is being taught today is very important. The entire personality has to go with the exercise. When you say you are relaxed, it’s not showing your hands or your legs, but your entire body - the neck, the head and the various parts. If we can achieve that, then we have done a good Shavasana and you get results. But we hardly do it that way. We merely see a picture and just physically want to imitate for a few minutes and then get up and don’t see any good. So we are learning this attitude idea, which is very important. It has been done well (in the Satsang) and I hope it will carry some good message.”

The topic for the Hindi Satsang on Sunday, 23rd March, 2014 was 'Yoga for the Golden Years.' 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. In the golden years, when physical strength is decreasing, how to increase mental strength? Smt. H: The point is, if the body is weak, the mind has to become strong and if mind is weak, the body becomes strong. So in young age, the mind is weak and body is strong and in old age, it is the other way round. So to increase mental strength, this is the path- become more self-reliant. You do things yourself. If you want a glass of water, you get up and get the water. If you have to go out, decide who can come with you and if no one can, go alone. As much as possible, self-reliance is necessary. Sometimes if need be you can take help. But making demands from the family will send them further away from you and if someone is forced to help you, they will do it grudgingly. So try and avoid demands and reduce your needs to the bare minimum. Q. On growing older, the children are supporting their mother and becoming unreasonable. What can the father do in this case?

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?
