The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 10th August, 2014 was 'Positive Rituals.'

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. Are rituals part of Yogic lifestyle? Dr. J: In a way, some of them are. Repeating certain thoughts, mentally going over them, these are all Mantras that are very useful. Smt. H: Yes, as I explained earlier, Yogic lifestyle has certain rituals. But we also have a duty towards society, nation and humanity. If it is a good day for another person, we should also share in the joy. Be happy in others' happiness - Mudita. Maitri - friendliness, compassion, these are all Yogic qualities and their expression in a gentle way is good. Q. I am not clear about the difference between rituals and routines. Can you please explain?
