29th April 2014 – Tuesday – Bhagavad Gita (6.40 – 6.41)
“God said to Arjuna- paths, there is no fall for him either here or here after, for none who would work for self redemption (udhaar), meets with an evil end. One should start on this path, there is no possibility of any evil communion. The fallen having come down, having attained the world of righteousness, having lived there for countless years is reborn in the house of the pious and prosperous. These are the two shlokas. The main thing is, once you start on the right path there is no fear. The past helps and what has been done earlier helps. This is the idea.”

1st May 2014 – Thursday – Vihar
Vihar is the word. It is a klesha. See now to us it looks very childish. We are so busy with the early life that recreation itself doesn’t affect us. But in reality work and rest, all these things go together. You have to spend sometime for a break from work, some rest, some relaxation. This should be the order and not just work. Something for you to consider.”

2nd May 2014 – Friday – Yoga Sutra 2.48
“See once we proceed on the yogic path, controlling the senses and the postures, there is a kind of stoppage that occurs. One is not interested either in the physical asanas or the act of breathing or other physical activities. That is when the slow stoppage occurs. Ultimately there is a cessation. Mind doesn’t function. That would be the beginning stage to pratyahara and all such conditions. We have descriptions, how controlling these various organs and physiological activities, where we can reach the stage where there is a complete control for the normal activities and these activities have to be stopped if one is interested in something more. You can’t carry on your physical activities of talking and walking and all that. Once all this has stopped, then the mind is steady. So its a beautiful description of how the mind slowly, like a fast train that is slowing down , comes to the final station and then stops.”
