A Message

By Shyam Mehta

A Message to All Sincere Yoga Students.

The objective of yoga practice is to wake up each morning and want with all your heart for the following thoughts to arise first thing:

" Lord, may You always be happy
May whatever you wish always come true
Please let me always be there, for You "

In the case of a married woman, her sincere desire should be directed to her husband. For everyone else you need to ask your teacher whom you should pray to.

There are four aspects to yoga practice :

  1. Developing a tranquil mind, see my article "Quietness in Your Life"

  2. Tapas, developing purity of your body in mind through everything you do, see "tapas"

  3. Svadhyaya, studying the scriptures, specifically the Bhagavad-Gita and Ramayana, see my Loving Heart Centre articles on how to get started with
    these.

  4. Ishvara Pranidhana, doing all your actions for God. To start with this you need to resolve each day to help your husband [for a married woman]
    OR
    nice people you encounter in your life [for a married man] to become happy. Single people needed in the first instance to focus on finding a nice marital partner and making them happy.

All who follow this simple path will succeed in their true life mission, which for all of us is Bhakti, constant permanent loving remembrance of God.

May all sincere students of yoga get this message.
