Here and now, starts the Yoga instruction.
This is how the book begins. Yoga Sutras by Patanjali. This book is a great work. If you can master the meaning of this book, you can become a master yourself.
If you can be here and now, you are already a yogi.
Nope, this wisdom is not mine, I am simply chewing a talk I heard yesterday by Swami Nithyananda.
All religions have two parts, one is the essence of the religion, the spiritual aspect, and the other is the ritualistic aspect. The day to day things to be done.
How to brush your teeth, how many wives to marry, all that.
If you a Buddha, it is better not to marry. If you are a Krishna, you can marry as many times as you wish. Only, don't bother to count. (Yup, he really said that!)
Patanjali's Yoga is a clear stream of science. It is hundred percent essence. Which is why, all the spiritual masters of the world are directly or indirectly inspired by Patanjali. It is a teaching that makes masters. Patanjali is a spiritual navigator, he says.
Swamiji will be expounding the Patanjali Yoga Sutras all through this year. This was the first talk, in North America. They will send the Cd's to India and we can see them at the various meditation centers. More information here.
I am sure these video clips will come on the Life Bliss Channel of youtube soon.
