Karma Yoga

"Put a smile on your face,

Don't bring everybody down like this

Don't worry, it will soon past whatever it is"

(Bobby McFerrin)

 


Karma Yoga. Union in life. Uniting in action. Untying action. The infinite world of possibilities wakes us up every morning bringing the myriads micro- and macro-tasks with endless choices we have to make. Normally, we just turn on the autopilot - and let the events go the way they tend to go - not realising even that they are following a predestined track emanating from the tendencies we carry inside ourselves.

 

Every time we look at the world through a little window of what we consider "ourselves", "I", we lose the whole picture around and, in lack of understanding, have to come up with the imperfect judgments of what is going on. Once we realise that we can come out of that dwelling and be able to see a bigger thing, straight away we have sown the seeds of awareness, which would be sprouting occasionally until there is no space for judgmental weeds in the garden of our consciousness.

 

Every action done with awareness and detachment to the result is purifying us. It removes the negative emotional charge associated with every memory bit stored in our mind field and forming countless patterns guiding the negative tendencies of ourselves - samskaras. Adopting a witnessing attitude with every deed we are involved in and observing our reaction induces the state of harmony and balance by releasing samskaras. How does I feel? What does I think? Does I try to avoid/reject/suppress anything?

 

Once we observe and there is no expectation, no attachment to the result - the action becomes egoless - s-e-l-f-l-e-s-s. There is no more tiny-boxed self, constantly suffering from obsession. You start developing the immunity against all pain coming as a part of the "life package". With dissolution of ego, we go beyond suffering originating from the reactive patterns of thinking.

 

By activating a higher vision motivated by egoless attitude, we vacate some "space in time" (sounds good to me!) for a Higher Self, awakening the buddhi and yielding to the ineffable grandeur of the intuitive, knowing part of the universal mind we all share.

 

 

"Now there is this song I wrote

I hope you learned it note for note like good little children

Don't worry, be happy"

 

(Bobby McFerrin)

Bihar School Of Yoga contribution to the world
“Contribution of the Satyananda Tradition to Yoga Sri Swamiji and the Satyananda tradition have made a major contribution to yoga and sannyasa. In order to systematize the practices of yoga it was necessary to create a sequential progression in the structure of yoga, and that is what Sri Swamiji has achieved. To Sri Swamiji goes the credit for the combinations of techniques and presentation of the pawanmuktasana series, parts one (anti-rheumatic), two (anti-gastric) and three (shakti bandhas). He also incorporated components of tantric nyasa into the yogic system in the form of yoga nidra. The sequence in which the practices of pranayama are taught today by the majority of yogic schools was

Psychospacial Meditation
Q: I have been mediating since 14 now I am 20 initially I felt quite calm any detached but slowly I became  irritated and depressed sort of. Should I stop meditation and yoga? A: The irritation/depression is likely to be frustration with your life. You might like to think about what you want out of your life and go after it systematically. A good place to start is a vision board and new experiences and training. Meditation and yoga just reveals what is there, it doesn't create the difficult emotions, it just allows them time/space to rise up and inform our lives. ——— If one focuses the Mind’s-Eye in a directional spacial orientation: 1. Clarity — occurs as a single-point in front of the two
