“Asteya comes in Yamas. Yamas are those things which are natural instincts. If a person is not aware, he will naturally do anything for his own benefit. This is what the sage Patanjali has said we must grow above. A thief will steal. He will make sure no one is looking, but he will steal. He will use all his intelligence to steal without being caught.

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. (Referring to the Mangal Geet sung at the end of every Satsang)Should we then reinforce this message "Sab Mangal Hai" ('Everything is auspicious') instead of "Sab Mangal Ho" ('May everything be auspicious')? Smt. H: Let's be very practical and clear that right now, everything is not 'Mangal.' So first let's have the feeling that 'Let some Mangal happen.' Once it happens, then things will definitely be different. Right now, every human has more and more desire and is not at all content. That is why we have this prayer that says 'Let everything be good.' And so that goodness starts from within and you see good all around, that is when it will become "Sab Mangal Hai." Q. If you acquire some good knowledge from a certain source, can you share it with others without taking permission from that source?

Pratyahara is to go inwards. This is linked to our state of mind... it's a means to lean towards our consciousness, to exit the external world / stimuli by shutting down our sensory organs namely our eyes, ears, our sense of touch, taste and smell.
Our senses link our inner self with the external world. And they are functioning continuously without a break. We are always alert and aware of whats going on outside and interested to try everything, touch everything, desire to taste / to see everything that exists outside, the question to understand is, how much?

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.

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?

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “In yoga Steya (stealing) is one of our intrinsic natural tendencies, just like Himsa (violence), and lying. If we get something, we take it even if it is not needed. If we find an unclaimed thousand rupee note on the road, we will take it and consider it as a gift from God. This tendency is there even in animals and insects. If an ant is carrying a piece of sugar and we shoo it away, it leaves the sugar and goes away. Another ant will come and take that piece of sugar. However, a human being can at least think and know that he doesn’t need something he has found, that he has enough. This is only possible when the person has some philosophy or understanding. A very wise mind in needed to think this way.
