Yoga,  Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

A little about the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: Sadhana Pada — 1.13-1.14

Hello everyone! How are you feeling? So, we remember, in order to pacify our intellect, mind and ultimately consciousness, we need practice and detachment. Today we will examine in detail what Patanjali means by practice.

1.13 Tatra sthitau patches abhyasah

Practice is a solid effort to calm the vibrations.

1.14.Sa tu dirghakala nairantarya satkara asevitah dridhabhumih

Long, continuous and attentive practice is a solid foundation for pacifying vibrations.

Practice is an effort to stop the oscillations of consciousness. And having mastered the practice, a person pacifies his mind, which is subject to external influence. This happens only when the sadhaku exerts true effort. He does this with attention, sincerity, zeal and devotion. And this happens for a very long time. Thus in fact, he must completely dissolve in this process, live it.

Practice refers not only to systematic yoga classes. Not just a physical process. This includes the moral, ethical, mental, intellectual aspects. They are represented by yama, niyama and pranayama. About them we will talk further. Only through such a combined effort the oscillations of consciousness can be stopped.

All these moral aspects are also needed, because in the process of physical formation, the practitioner may be a little starry. Yes, he can sit in a negative twine or stand on his hands for hours, and no one around him for example can. Pride begins, which can lead very far from the true goal of yoga, which is not about asanas. But if you add morality, ethics, intelligence, then wisdom will appear that will give an understanding that negative twine is not the main thing in this whole process.

Samadhi to all) And keep in touch! MarrySav
