Yama, Niyama – How You Treat The Others And How You Treat Your Self.

I share with you guys today 2 of my favorite Old Yogic Wisdoms. The Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali By Sri Swami Satchidananda And Bhagavad Gita By Mahabharata I can really warmly to recommend for everyone who is interested about yogic lifestyle and philosophy. Those are my favorite  Master Pieces to study. They are books About Finding Your True Seer And How To Live A Yogic Life In All Aspects. Yama, Niyama are the guidelines that I would recommend everyone to take a deeper thought over – How You Treat The Others And How You Treat Your Self.

  • Patanjali is talking about to really go in your self and finding the true reflections of your mind and soul. How we are constantly getting disturbed of other peoples reflections and in that way we loose our selves to false impressions.
 
 
 1. Dharma and Karma, what’s the difference ?
I would like to clear up a bit about life purpose ( dharma ) and how people often mix it up with karma and try to live to someone elses dharma instead of their own. Wich is never to recommend.
It’s always better to do your own dharma even if your outcome of is less than perfect, Than do someone elses dharma perfect. Even if you do it perfect it is not yours to do, so you will get stuck and never get the satisfaction of it. And what is your Dharma it’s your job to find out . Karma is your action and the outcome of your action. So if you really are aming for good outcomes of your actions, you better have your purposes and intensions headed in the right things and the right directions. If your actions are fully driven of your ego , you maybe get far to the beginning but somewhere the karma will kick in and straighten you up.
This is a big wisdom I learned from a book named Bhagavad Gita.
2. Yoga Sutra 1.33 of Patanjalis
The wonderful script of  Yamas – How we should be cultivating our attitudes towards others  and through  that to find piece within us selves.
How many times haven’t you got irritated when some one has been really happy? Or getting mad and hateful towards someone being mean?

1.33 By cultivating attitudes of friendliness towards the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous and disregard toward the wicked, the mind-stuff retains its undisturbed calmness.

So Patanjali gives us four keys: friendliness, compassion, delight and disregard. There is only four kind of  locks in the world. Keep these four keys always with you, and when you come across any one of these four locks, you will always have the proper key to open it.

And what are those four locks? Sukha, Duhkha, Punya and Apunya – happy people, unhappy people, the virtuos and the wicked. You use those keys and you will be able to keep your mind calm and stabil.

This Sutra is my golden treasure ( As the whole book is. ) ! Test it as you find a lock next time!!

Niyamas – How we should be cultivating our attitudes towards us selves. That one isn’t neither to taken lightly. Your negative thoughts and actions towards your self is always doing harm and bringing you down.                                                                                                                                                                                            So that is something we have to stop with. Make instead a commitment to your self and every time  you   get a negative thought about your self, STOP and turn it to opposite ! It takes time to train your mind to it, but as you get better you will feel de difference within you.

As I have for many years helped others with their physical problems, before with massage and consulting to training and now with Yoga, I also like to help people to get knowledge of helping then selves too.
As you know it’s only possible for you to help someone to certain point and after that the helping is not anymore on you. If you give a man a fish, he is satisfied for that day but hungry again tomorrow. If you learn that man how to fish, he will have food on the table for rest of his days.
These wisdoms I wrote about above is a good start to getting to the right direction of good outcomes of your actions.
I wish you a peaceful Monday and Go ahead BE AWESOME !
