Yoga is the stilling of conflict in the heart-mind
YOGAS CHITTA VRITTI NIRODHA — from Yoga Sutras of Patanjali 1:2 — This Maha-Kranti (Great Revolution) will not be televised. It won’t be online either. It takes place in the Akash (inner-dimensional space). Its preparedness does not come in the form of stockpiles of food, fuel or gold. We prepare by purifying our Karma-s (actions). This in turn purifies the Jivatma (the aspiring Soul who has taken on a birth) to become a Jivanmukta (a liberated living Soul). Yoga is the process of purifying the human vehicle. Hatha Yoga is but one arm of Yoga. These 8 appendages (Ashtang) are not linear, they are limbs, just as Sage Patanjali names them. The process of purification can be beautiful, though is not ‘pretty’ like you see on social media. The risks are mitigated and your unique experience is beatified by the guidance of a qualified, experienced teacher .
