Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. When daily we see our children doing things and spoiling their health and they do not want us to interfere, what is our duty? What do we do? Do we leave them as they are? Dr. J: We need not be too harsh on young children. We can join them and ourselves take up the activity and in a very pleasant way, tell them the benefits. It has to be done in a better way than just forcing. Smt. H: Understand that with a child you need to be very creative. We have to understand their overall food habits and certain things. Suppose you made a certain vegetable the child doesn't like, okay, what do we get from vegetables? Fibers, vitamins and minerals. Now vitamins and minerals you will get from honey. So let the child eat his chapatti with honey and get up, no problem. And for fiber what you need to make him eat is groundnuts or sprouts. So we have to be more creative and not rigid, that "You have to eat this vegetable, this is bad and this is good." Don't be so harsh on children and that's how they will slowly pick up the habit. Or sometimes with a loving tone just tell him, "Just eat one spoon for me." Such things, slowly, slowly should be introduced and not forced upon. Q. How to be active daily and every moment? Is there one way or one Asana to get rid of lethargy?

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “In all activities in life, we do not appreciate the value of regularity and routines. We do things for a little while and we are tired. We pick it up again after long. In the meanwhile, not much good occurs. This is a defect in our personality. Those who are consistent, succeed. In the stories of great men and women, there are those who take up things and have followed them regularly. This applies in all areas. It is an attitude of the mind and naturally it spills over in our activities. We want to improve but we don’t want to pay the price. The unfortunate result is that we don’t improve at all.

Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. Positive thinking attracts positive happenings. How does this happen? Dr. J: We are showing a pleasant and happy, cheerful face, naturally the response will be good. If we are appearing unhappy, disturbed, then the response will be bad. So to a good extent, our own expressions will lead to the reactions. Smt. H: You create your own world. If you think good things, good will happen, if you think bad things, bad things will happen. If you worry, worrisome situations will increase. So clearly, we should make our own world right. Live will faith. Q. Are Gunas synonymous with electrons, protons and neutrons?

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “It is certain now that if we bring positive thoughts in the mind, 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.” - Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra

“We have a mind and its job is to think. The mind does its job very well. Yoga clearly states that we always have a choice. We do not have a choice with the kind of situations we face or the circumstances that stand before but we always have a choice on how we face them. We can feel good or bad about the same situation, it is totally up to us how we choose to behave.

What yoga offers is definitely possible. It's just that in present times we don't see any persons on this path and if they are, we don't know about them. But it definitely is possible. Q. Sometimes when something wrong happens, what is that? Can miracles be negative also?

The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 10th November, 2013 was 'Avidya.' Following is the transcript of the Q & A between the audience and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra and Smt. Hansaji Yogendra.
Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. Avidya is the inability to see things as they are. Can you elaborate on this? Dr. J: This universe is infinite. We don't know how vast, but we leave it there. Smt. H: A simple example - what is our position in this whole world? Where is our Earth? How many suns are there in the whole galaxy? So many suns and so many planets are there. And then our Earth, in India, in Mumbai we are there. So that's our position. We are such tiny things. But we think of ourselves to be quite great, as if without us the world can't run, without us the house can't run. Without us everything can run. We are nothing. So first of all, we have to remove that ignorance, we have to accept things as they are. If a person is not capable, accept and move ahead. The point is seeing things as they are, i.e. try to see things clearly, see what's your position and understand accordingly. Q. In practical life, they say ignorance is bliss. How do you explain?

Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. How do we judge ourselves? Smt. H: If you don't know what you are, then who else will know? So there is no question of judging; observe yourself, how much you can do in a day, how much you feel comfortable with, make a diary. This has to be done in various areas - how much can you eat, what time would be more comfortable, how much sleep you need, how much activity your body can take, etc. So know thyself thoroughly well, then only can you move ahead in life. You are going to progress slowly, slowly, no doubt about it. Q. What are the parameters to know that progress is occuring?

“Our I-sense or Ego is the outcome of Ignorance (Avidya). These are our Kleshas (afflictions) and we are born with them. A young child does not demonstrate this ego but when this child goes to school, we instill this I-sense within the young child by teaching him that this school bag belongs to him, this water bottle belongs to him, this is his mother or his father or his sister etc. And such is necessary too to be able to function in this world. It is his homework and he has to complete it, he cannot say otherwise. Hence, this I-sense is important but when we impose this I-sense on others, then it becomes Ego.
