8th September 2013 - Sunday - Dealing with depression “We all suffer from depression. Otherwise we wouldn't get disturbed. We come to know, listen, but we don’t understand. You see, this ability to understand is a central factor. We give in to negative thoughts. Things are bad, going to the worst and all that kind. So we are a bundle of confusion, doubts, fear; there is no positivity. Unfortunately these have increased and today most of us have this kind of feeling where we take it that the world is going to the dogs, things are not going to get better, we have to just suffer and all that. Yoga begins with positive thinking. If you sit for a few minutes, eyes closed, watching your breathing; a good feeling does come and you get peace, mind is very clear, develop faith. If one can do it regularly, some amount of strength also comes. Those who have problems like depression, fear, they have to begin somewhere. Just thinking and feeling sad is not the answer. So many who have taken to yoga, they do some yoga practices, have good company, talk something better and changes happen. So depression has a good answer – do things, be optimistic.”9th September 2013 - Monday - Satya

31st August 2013 - Saturday - Yoga for Education “We were expecting a group of 200 children but they have not turned up. We will talk a little about education. I don't know how you look at this theme, yoga for education. Any ideas? (A student speaks) Is cleaning the nose yoga? (Another student speaks) You see, there is this word, Dincharya. It means routines. And as you know, in India, right from the early childhood this education was there, just like when to get up, what is the first activity one should do and all these little little things. They were actually taught and till a very advanced age the wise have followed it. So you see them living a very different kind of life. This education is not taught nowadays. The education that we learn is getting related to going to school, taking up a job and all that. So yoga education is a little different thing, more about life and living it.”1st September 2013 - Sunday - Anitya Bhavana, Pratipaksha Bhavana, Nispandabhava

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute.Chapter 1, Sutra 48Patanjali Yoga Sutra 1.48Rtambhara-Tatra-PrajnaRtambhara: filled with higher truth, essence, supreme cognition Tatra: there Prajna: knowledge, wisdom, insight In This (State) The Consciousness Is Truth BearingListen to the audio:Check this out on ChirbitDr. Jayadeva Yogendra:
“This sutra is all technical. It talks of the highest knowledge, Prajna. But this highest is described as Rutambara: truth-bearing. It is not just the ordinary knowledge: 2+2=4. Whatever the person says turns out correct. Whatever he sees is accurate. Never any mistake. Just as an example, when the Founder was in The Yoga Institute in America, lots of eager supporters, American boys, they took him to a shooting range where they were shooting at the trunk of the trees with a pistol, testing their accuracy.

24th August 2013 - Saturday - Purpose of Life “Life and purpose of life. We are living, but why? No chance to think, we just carry on and that creates problems. We sometimes find difficulties, sometimes don’t know how to overcome them. We should spend a little time to try to understand more about us. That’s the idea today.”25th August 2013 - Sunday - Change Yourself

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute.Chapter 1, Sutra 47Patanjali Yoga Sutra 1.47Nirvicara-Vaisaradye-AdhyatamaprasadahNirvicara: devoid of subtle thoughts Vaisaradye: with undisturbed flow Adhyatama: spiritual, regarding the Atman or true Self Prasadah: purity, illumination, clearness Subjective Enlightenment Is Reached If The Flow Of Super Reflective Samadhi Attains Utmost PurityListen to the audio:Check this out on ChirbitDr. Jayadeva Yogendra:
"The mind is continuously busy. What happens when the mind doesn't think? Who's going to imagine that? That is a higher state. Then special realization comes. Otherwise the mind is thinking of anything and that is how it keeps us busy. So the final stages in yoga is when the mind stops, and just pure awareness is what remains."

17th August 2013 - Saturday - Om "The world is not specially created for us. In fact its the other way around, we create our world. There are some who are very happy in their life, who does that? See individuals create an approach, some are jovial , some are otherwise, it is for our own interest. If we don't build up a particular kind of an approach which we generally like to do, life is flowing, watch- and experience. I don't know if it is a very difficult proposition."18th August 2013 - Sunday - Ahar, Vihar, Achar, Vichar

Patanjali Yoga Sutra Transcribed from Parisamvad at The Yoga Institute.Chapter 1, Sutra 46Patanjali Yoga Sutra 1.45Ta-Eva-Sabijah-SamadhihTa: these, those, they Eva: only Sabijah: with seed Samadhih: deep absorption of meditation These Are The Samadhis With Seed (Having An Object For Meditation)Listen to the audio:Check this out on ChirbitDr. Jayadeva Yogendra:
"So we are on the 46th Sutra. These are about 'Samadhis'. We use only one word 'Samadhi', but there are so many types. They could be gross- some definite object, or they could be subtle- towards ideas. And the mind has to be concentrating for long, and the knowledge that is gathered is very special. In these Samadhis, there are four kinds; whether I want to go into deep depths and understand the essence.

10th August 2013 - Saturday - Perseverance "In yoga, there is the distracted mind and the steady mind. The distracted mind doesn't allow us any progress, we simply get lost. We start with great ideas, but on the way temptations, diverse interests, they come in and as a result the object is left off and the unnecessary ideas stay back. That's how we have all those stories also, a man goes with some noble ideas, but on the way he gets lost. And this is not something that happens somewhere at the end, this is there right from the start. See as a beginner in yoga, this is like a game of chess and they finish us off, till it is enough and we say 'I can't carry on', because the material interests are very strong. So this is the point that has been made out, I don't know how you take it. "11th August 2013 - Sunday - Are we spiritual?
