YAMA

Yama the first of the eight limbs described in the yoga text of Pattanjali
This limb recommends five ethical practices or restraints
Ahimsa: Applying non-violence/non harming to yourself and others.
Satya: Truth -living according to your own truth.
Asteya: Non stealing.
Brahmachharya: Abstinence ; containing sexual energy.
Aparigraha; Non coveting ; letting go of desires.
My take on these, is to practice to the best of my ability in the same way as I practice Asana ( Yoga poses).


Quote of the day

When you stop identifying with your thoughts, fluctuations of mind, then there is yoga,identify with self, which is Samahdi, happiness, bliss and ecstasy.
