18th May 2013 - Saturday - Way of Life "There is a very good sentiment expressed in our in Indian culture, "Sarve Jana Sukhinah Santu"- May everyone be happy. It is a universal statement. Constantly feeling that way, talking, acting, doing. Now, rarely do we have these feelings, we do say, 'Good morning', but that is the end. To carry it further, to think well, to do something, this we are not doing. It is worth considering, whether we can maintain this kind of thought all the time."

Listen to the audio:Check this out on ChirbitDr. Jayadeva Yogendra:"There is a question in the sutra, whether we can we maintain a happy peaceful attitude when we are confronted by different kinds of people. Our usual reaction is if there is a good person we are nice, bad person we are angry. Throughout the day this goes on. The result is we are not very steady in our mind. Everything depends on whom we see , whom we talk to, whom we listen on telephone. The attempt here is to see that the mind remains cool.

11th May 2013 - Saturday - Suffering and Happiness “Such terms we use often – ‘Good Morning’, ‘Happy Day’. Throughout the day we use such words but what is the meaning? Do we mean it? Are we happy when we are told we are happy? In fact, our mind remains the same. We are unable to knock out that mind and basically yoga is to knock out that mind – remain stable, accept life and respond, do your duties. These are the instructions given. But in our day-to-day life, we want the excitement and momentarily we get excited, again we are in a depressed state. We have to recognize this and carry on our duties without getting too excited. This is the message.”

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute.Chapter 1, Sutra 32Yoga Sutra 1.32Tatpratisedhartham Ekatattva AbhyasahTat : those, their Pratisedha: prevention, removal Artham : for the purpose of Eka : single Tattva : truth, principle Abhyasah : practice, cultivating that habitFor their prevention let there be perseverance after one truth.Listen to the audio:Check this out on ChirbitDr. Jayadeva Yogendra:"We are talking of concentrating the mind, because then understanding can occur. So this object has to be one single object not keep on changing, and the attention has to be continuous. See, these are the conditions and if one can manage that, then some understanding can occur, otherwise a mind that is wavering never gathers any knowledge.

4th May 2013 - Saturday - Inaction "Talk on 'inaction', which is our national trait. If we can avoid something, we will avoid it. We do what we do out of leisure, but we just like to do nothing. There are many things that we all could have done in life, for the good of our own people, but we just don't do. Not that the jobs are very hard. It may be just picking up a paper lying on the road and putting it away, but we don't do it. So inaction has become a trait. This is a bad habit. If we are otherwise free, and are capable, we must carry out actions that are required. It is worth considering, whether we are of that kind - who are trying to do actions as required, or are trying to find out ways and means to avoid actions."

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute.Chapter 1, Sutra 31Patanjali Yoga Sutra 1.31Dukha Daurmanasya Angamejayatva Svasapravasah Viksepa SahabhuvahDukha : pain (physical or mental) Daurmanasya: sadness , frustration , depression Angamejayatva : unsteadiness , movement , tremor of the limbs or body Svasa : inhalation , inspiration (implying irregular inhalation ) Prasvasah : exhalation , expiration ( implying irregular exhalation ) Viksepa : distractions Sahabhuvah : companionsSorrow , Dejection. Restlessness Of Body , Inhalation And Exhalation Arise From (Previous) DistractionsListen to the audio:Check this out on ChirbitDr. Jayadeva Yogendra:"See, we have this sutra which is talking about the difficulties. Pain, despair, trembling, fast inhalation, exhalation they all accompany distractions. Physically also the person is unable to proceed. Apparently they are appear physical but the internal disturbances are more important. When a person is internally peaceful then this trembling and all that doesn’t happen. At the learning stage we are unable to handle them.

We know them. They are part of our character. Disease is one. We fall sick, few times in a year. We are lazy, mind is uncertain, doubtful. Illusions, disillusionments, not finding our correct objective, goal. That kind of uncertainty, we are never a 100% sure about what we do. Various such things are mentioned. You see, these are the obstacles which are part of our personality. Even the best men have these unfortunate qualities. Naturally in learning of yoga they come as a hindrance. Suddenly doubt comes, suddenly laziness and all that. So these have been mentioned as our enemies. Unless we can overcome them, we can’t get full-heartedly into learning yoga.
