“The five internal disciplines are bodily purification, contentment, intense discipline, self-study, and dedication to the ideal of yoga. With body purification, one’s body ceases to be compelling, likewise contact with others. Purification also brings about clarity, happiness, concentration, mastery of the senses, and capacity for self-awareness. Contentment brings unsurpassed joy. As intense disciple burns up impurities, the body and its senses become supremely refined.”

Celibacy and Vegetarianism vs Sex and Meat – Response to questions
Celibacy and Vegetarianism vs Sex and Meat – Response to questions about the Yamas of Brahmacharya and Ahimsa.
YAMAS: LIMB 1 OF ASHTANGA YOGA
“When the components of yoga are practiced, impurities dwindle; then the light of understanding can shine forth, illuminating the way to discriminative awareness. The eight components of yoga are external discipline, internal discipline, posture, breath regulation, concentration, meditative absorption, and integration. The five external disciplines are not harming (ahimsa), truthfulness (satya), not stealing (asteya), celibacy (brahmachari) and not being acquisitive (aparigraha). These universals, transcending birth, place, era, or circumstance, constitute the great vow of yoga. “
“Out from the coldest winter and night,
The desert was blooming, Springing to life.
They sang out for Holi and Holy the sight!
Victory to Vishnu and Narasimha!
Holika was burning, burning each plight.
Prahalada devoted, was shielded from fright.
Hiranyakashipu laid torn, vicious the might.
Released from all demons, trespasses all ceased.
Krishna and Radha colored delight.
Eternal Shiv-Shakti, eternal the light.”
ASHTANGA YOGA – THE 8 LIMBS
The first in the series is on ASHTANGA YOGA – THE 8 LIMBS. The eight limbs of yoga are the yamas (abstentions), niyamas (observances), asanas (postures), pranayama (breath control), prathyahara (withdrawal of senses), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation) and samadhi (super consciousness).
THE SACRED SEED – AUM
This Sunday, satsang and meditation was on the sacred seed mantra AUM. AUM is the universal sound of creation, the imperishable sound, the seed of all that exists, the past, the present and the future. Everything unfolds from AUM. Whatever transcends the three realms, indeed is the flowering of AUM. In this video I discuss AUM, the sacred syllable, to beeja mantra that is omnipresent through all of creation. Join me for a simple yet powerful and effective meditation upon AUM.
