Yoga chittha vritthi nirodhaha
Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind
On this auspicious occasion of Mothers day it is with infinite bliss I wish all the Mothers in the world Peace, Joy and Love in all aspects of their lives.
Mother is a divine force of creation on Earth. Mother is a
representation of the energy of all forms from bearing, rearing and nurturing the life. As a Mother myself, I feel honoured to have been given an opportunity to share my thoughts with you all.
As we all know Yoga is the Union of Mind and Body. It is state of Bliss where Mind is calm and still. One Saint, Vinoba Bhave, from India used to have lot of discussions about Karma (Action), Jnana (Knowledge) and Bhakti (Devotion) Yogas. He always wondered why people could not make all these forms of Yoga part of their life. Karma Yoga – The Yoga of Action, which means to perform duties without any expectation of results and develops a level of detachment and in a way that gives us infinite peace. Jnana Yoga is the way of attaining that Bliss by using Knowledge as a weapon to fight and clean the impurities and wavering of mind. Bhakti Yoga is a way of attaining the peace by developing devotion to the Supreme Force or God and completely surrender all the thoughts and actions to that Pure Energy.
So Vinoba Bhave spent a lot of time trying to find this person who would make all these forms of Yoga, a way of life. One day the light dawned upon him and he was in extreme joy that he found the answer. He declared and announced “It is the Mother who practices all forms of Yoga”.
The Mother cooks for the children with an unselfish attitude – this is Karma Yoga— performing her duties with no expectations for herself – Yoga of Action. She sees that the food is cooked with proper nutrition and taste – this is Jnana Yoga – Yoga of Knowledge. She feeds her children with unconditional love with utmost devotion – this is Bhakti Yoga – Yoga of Devotion.
This story I heard from my father who was my first Guru. My mother was uneducated but she was innocent and Pure, without realizing she had been practicing these three forms of Yoga all her life.
But in the modern world we are forgetting the essence of these ancient approaches to life. We are caught in the rat race of life forgetting the pure energy that is present in every single person. If a woman has been gifted to create a new life within, can you imagine the potential a woman has within? Unfortunately we cover the Pure Energy by the emotions of Jealousy, Selfishness, Greed, Possessiveness and Anger, creating Hell on Earth.
Many realizations from my childhood have resulted in the birth of ‘Sookshma Yoga and Meditation’. I believe that 90% of the human suffering is because of Self-Inflicted pain. Sookshma tools are ‘Purity and Bliss’. Benefits you will gain in the long run are cumulative and the life will progressively undergo a miraculous transformation. Slowly but surely you will know what Joy really means. Everything is possible with Sookshma. Sookshma has the power to influence not just you, but generations to come for hundreds of years. Ask yourself this question: Am I really Happy? Am I really peaceful every moment? Please give yourself an honest answer. From your answer you decide what is important for life. There is something I would like to say before I conclude. Postures and Breathing exercises are only part of Yoga, they are not the complete system of Yoga. Eternal Bliss can be experienced only with Purity of thought.
