15 Sep Dr. Jayadeva talking on ‘Pratyahara’
The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 15th September, 2013 was ‘Pratyahara‘
Following is the transcript of the speech made by Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra on the topic.
Listen to the Audio:
“We have kept our mind too soft/weak and that is why it is running wild all the time. Because of this, we are not involved in the work at hand, we cannot concentrate properly. For this, yoga gives us a simple technique – keep the mind one-pointed. And for this, we just have to maintain control over our senses. By doing this, the mind stops running around and becomes focussed on one thing, it becomes concentrated. So yoga techniques are very useful and by practicing them bit by bit, it brings out good results in us.”
– Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
