8th June 2014 – Sunday – Faith
“There is a saying in Sanskrit, “Shraddha-mayo ‘yam purushah.” It means that a human being is made of Shraddha / faith. The more the faith, the greater is the person. We have little faith. Real faith is never in some material thing or to attain something, it is only in God. He is behind everything that is happening. But we are not able to have such faith, so our faith has no meaning. There should be no vested interest behind faith. Faith is peace. When a person is peaceful and wise and thinks accordingly, he has real faith. We are unable to reach such a state and so our faith is weak and many times we do not get certain things. Keep faith and you will automatically get things.”

9th June 2014 – Monday – Avidhya
“Wrong knowledge as right knowledge, that is our way. We are unable to get through this mistake. We are not able to establish what is right and what is wrong. See what yoga does, is that it finally separates out these two and as a result sets out the course of rightness and this brings satisfaction. But we are hardly able to understand, and persist in the wrong way of thinking, believing, acting and living.”

10th June 2014 – Tuesday – Bhagavad Gita 7.3
“We strive for improving the life, but hardly get any succeeds. That is what the shloka tells us. In the Gita, (as in other books) mentions are made of thousands and millions searching for God. But hardly anyone succeeds in reaching God. This is a question worth considering because we all want to reach God. What is it that comes in our way?”

12th June 2014 – Thursday – Asmita
“See, Asmita is the klesha. It is very powerful. It makes us believe that there is nothing more than ‘me’. That is a powerful klesha or wrong knowledge. We spend our life on this kind of thinking.”

13th June 2014 – Friday – Yoga Sutra 2.54
“Our senses, (which are otherwise busy) with the stoppage they are supposed to go inward and that is known as ‘pratyahara‘. And of course many things happen. But our senses don’t stop; they are busy always.”
