Human being’s true nature is free from all miseries and pains.
We are without affliction. Every one of us is full of perfection, complete in our self, lacking nothing, full of health, full of harmony, full of happiness, and full of bliss.
If so, then why our entire life, our entire experience from birth to death, contradicts this fact?
Many people are rushing here and there, using their mind attached with Buddhi or Ahamkara and worrying and being tossed by the objects of the world to gain peace, happiness and bliss.
Have you determined to find peace, happiness and harmony?
Have your got your way to achieve it?
Let us see what scripture says;Tada drasta svarupe avastanam(1-3 PYS)
When you come to realize your essential nature, you get freedom
No one in the world will ever find these goals in any relationship.
Peace, bliss and happiness are within you, beyond your body, breath, senses and mind.
You can attain that peace by learning how to direct your energies with-in towards the finer aspects of your being.
To attain that what is needed?
Do we need to run different places?
Do we need to abstain from our duties or isolate everything?
We only need is to ‘Discipline’ our-self.
Discipline means not allowing our self-dissipated mentality by our thoughts, actions and speech.
The science of Yoga is a practical science that is to be applied in living your life and also helps in keeping you disciplined in every aspect of life.
But, there should be a desire and determination to start applying the instructions contained in the science of Yoga to your own life and conduct, to your mental actions, as well as to your outer physical actions of your life.
Every part of Yoga, right from the very start, is knowledge imparted from conversion in to ‘Abhyasa’ because it is Abhyasa only that will ultimately bring to you the fruit of your knowledge in the form of rare experience that nothing else in this world can give.
Yoga philosophy offers the analogy of a perfectly clear crystal, which is transparent and pure, but becomes filled as it with the color if any colored object is brought forth near it.
The object thus brought forth may be red colored bottle, or blue colored ball or pink colored flower and the whole crystal becomes red, blue or pink.
This proximity or contiguity of something having some characteristics brings about a seeing transference of that characteristic from that something in to the pure, transparent crystal.
So, it the contiguity to something that is the cause for the apparent change otherwise it is attribute less crystal.
Yoga philosophy says that we are also in the contiguity to something, we have become involved with something, and therefore states and conditions that exist in that factor seems as though they have come and taken possession of us.
We have to bring about a cessation of the contiguity that is there between the crystal and the object by separating the two, and then the crystal becomes pure and transparent.
Once again it stands in its true nature; it regains its true nature.
It is no more influenced or modified by something else which not the part of its essential being.
We should consider this analogy and keep it in mind.
Finally, Yoga is a practical science of self-realization and Abhyasa is the very essence of this science and the key is ‘Nairantarya’- regularity in the Abhyasa (practice).
