07 Jul Dr. Jayadeva on ‘Difficulties in the Study of Yoga’ at the Satsang
The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 7th July, 2013 was ‘Difficulties in the Study of Yoga.’
Following is the transcript of the speech made by Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra on the topic.
Listen to the Audio:
“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.”
– Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
