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

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

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?

3rd August 2013 - Saturday - Mistakes "See the idea is a standard idea, if you keep repeating, it gets strengthened. See now, learning yoga, we hardly repeat, read the sutra once till the end. If we can cultivate this habit that after we read something we again go over it, possibly once or twice, then the idea will sink. But we are lazy and we don't give importance to yoga sutras so much, that is our problem." 4th August 2013 - Sunday - Yoga: a medical therapy

27th July 2013 - Saturday - Health "They say 'health is wealth', but honestly does any one of us behave that way? We take it for granted. Do what we like, enjoy, and then we're at the doctors clinic and that is the continuous cycle. That 'prevention' doesn't exist and that is our whole life story. So ultimately by the time we are fifty and sixty we are in a very bad condition. And yoga keeps on shouting at the top of its voice- ' Please mind yourself, mind your own mind , your body and the way that you live.' But do we follow it? We are too busy in enjoyment, things that come before and that, is the story of our life." 28th July 2013 - Sunday - Maintaining Balance

20th July 2013 - Saturday - Spirituality "It will be a good topic if each one speaks a little about how they are able to get pleasure in life. It is no secret that we are all after pleasure. What did you try and how much pleasure did you get? Then one can say if one is truthful, so let us listen." 22nd July 2013 - Monday - Dharma

7th July 2013 - Sunday - Difficulties in the Study of Yoga “We have difficulties in life in everything we do, because we are not clear in it. What is it that we usually want? Whether it is clarity, peace of mind, money, pleasure, we are not clear. So we succeed in one area – make money, but suffer in another area – getting peace. And it goes on. I think gaining some clarity is very necessary. And even little time spent in that everyday can help us. We don’t need to spend too much time doing Puja and meditation but allowing the mind to settle down, to become peaceful and in that condition searching out people who can share. Small efforts of this kind may in the end help in deciding what is the right thing to do. So let us invest our time in a correct manner and come to know what is really important.” 8th July 2013 - Monday - Asmita

29th June 2013 - Saturday - Thought "So its a new day, possibly new year also. Some good things can happen. We should be optimistic, not drawn by the pessimism. Quietening the mind is the best technique, then you get good thoughts." 30th June 2013 - Sunday - Positive Rituals

22nd June 2013 - Saturday - To Listen "We have been waiting and so the thoughts about the fan and light. See we have come to learn, that the mind should be still , then the learning is proper. Imagine an old Gurukul as the teacher is being asked , 'You've not put on the fan, the lights are not on?' See, a learner should have a learning attitude, listening, following, humility, now a days we don't have that. The idea is more of show, fraternity. So in the end when we go away from here, no one will talk about the topic that has been discussed. That's a sad thing. During the day we don't have enough time for anything better, so we just get into these. It should be proper, that the little time that we spend, is spent in peace, spent in understanding, spent in a little enlightenment, some guidance, that will help us. But unfortunately we don't create that attitude. We come for some fun, some laughter, seeing new faces and all these things. This is unfortunate." 23rd June 2013 - Sunday - Tapa
