Check this out on Chirbit Q. In adverse situations, people have a tendency of becoming a victim of bad habits. How can this be avoided? Dr. J: Take a big foolscap paper and start writing from the morning the word ‘No, No, No…’ Smt. H: In adverse situations, it is imperative to stick to our healthy routines without slackening of our efforts. Eating, sleeping, walking and practising Asanas on time, singing, reading, writing something, etc. these healthy habits should be inculcated in daily routines.

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “Why should one do Tapa in yoga? Because sometimes a person becomes a slave of his weaknesses. As Dr. Jayadeva said, learn to say ‘no’ and mean it. What is not to be done, should not be done. But our determination wavers and we keep doing it. We are not able to develop our inner strength.

Check this out on Chirbit Q. Rising inflation causes insecurity. How to overcome this feeling? Smt. H: Yogah Cittavritti Nirodhah – Stop thinking. Insecurity comes when there is lack of faith. Faith needs to be developed. There was one person who came to me, all worried about inflation and the future. Are you getting food to eat today?” He said, there was no problem in that. So I told him, “Then be happy.” We don’t know what will happen in the future. Learn to live in the present and that would solve the problem. Q. Material possessions don’t make much difference to me. But I want more and more time with my husband. Is that wrong?

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on ChirbitSantosh, in yoga philosophy comes under Niyamas. Yamas teach us how to manage with the outside world and Niyamas show us what we should do for our own development. The first of the Niyamas is Sauca – external and internal purity, purity of body and even of thoughts. The second Niyama is contentment which is related to purity of our emotions and feelings. Where there is discontentment, there is negativity and mistakes. To live a discontented life is very wrong because such a person can never be happy. They will always want more and not learn to be happy with what is already there.

Check this out on Chirbit Q. Does Sauca also mean purification of thoughts? Dr. J: Most definitely. Smt. H: Yes, it is very necessary to bring about purity of thoughts in the mind. Always try to have good thoughts and remove wrong thoughts. Q. How do we maintain purity of thought when today’s world is full of negativity? Dr. J: Well, there is a lot of trash in the trash cans, still we are maintaining internal cleanliness. So even if there are so many unclean things, we can maintain cleanliness. Smt. H: This is what we are trying to say. The world is what it is, but you should do something for yourself. See to it that you don’t start thinking negatively or start doing wrong things just because others are doing it. At least you can keep yourself in check and do your work well.

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.
