Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “Today we are celebrating Mother Sita Devi’s birth anniversary. I would like to share some instances from her own life. After marriage, Founder Shri Yogendraji hardly had any money. He had already started a yoga institute and was busy with the Institute’s work. Mother too learnt slowly and joined him in his work. In those days, she owned only three Saris. As jewelry she had only a Mangalsutra in the neck, a pair of earrings and a bangle for her hand. She used to be content with that and was dedicated to the work at the Institute. She never cared about how many clothes she had or what she would wear at a wedding or occasion, in any case she was not involved much in socializing as the language here was different. She was Kannada speaking and she had married a Gujarati. So she lived life happily even with few things.

The topic for the Hindi Satsang on Sunday, 2nd June, 2013 was 'Aparigraha.' (Non-covetousness). 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
Check this out on Chirbit Q. How do you deal with a person who has the tendency to buy more than is required and then fill the home with clothes? Dr. J: Well, if a person has that tendency to get attracted, then naturally the people who are selling things are going to go round and round and make a good business. You are not a businessman. So you can leave that person be. Smt H: You are talking about the family member who is like this. What is Dr. Jayadeva’s attitude? More than three or four pairs of Kurtas and Pyjamas, he will make a bundle (of the rest), tie it up with a towel and keep it in a corner. He will use only three-four pairs. If you are having something extra, it is going to bother you at many times. So we have to have some such planning that something extra has to be kept aside and then quietly give it away to somebody who can then distribute. We have to let go of these things. Q. I believe that the more relations you build, the more love grows, so this (Aparigraha) does not apply to relationships. Am I wrong?
