Thank you India. Thank you silence.

G. Prashant Iyengar; Yoga is like Rolls-Royce

G. Prashant je sin BKS Iyengarja in avtoriteta RIMY Inštituta v Punah. Na svojih vadbah ima svojstven način poučevanja. Od praktikantov želi, da spoznajo svoje telo kot laboratorij in ga raziskujejo plast za plastjo. Praktikante poziva, da presežejo svojo vadbo kot mehansko nizanje položaja za položajem, in raje spoznavajo njegovo vsebino. Kot pravi, se šele […]

En teden je mimo, RIMYI Pune, Julij 2019

…začelo se je s proslavo, veličastno, štiridnevno za g.Prashantov 70. rojstni dan. Ujela sem zadnja dva dni. Iz jutranjega letala s pristankom ob 4.45 v Mumbaij-u, čez imigrantski postopek, v taksi, čez napol poplavljeno mesto, z zastoji na cestah v Pune, se je pot podaljšala že na 26 ur. Ni ravno mačji kašelj, ampak se […]

Taint-free actions

“The yogic action is an action that is absolutely unfettered by past habit and without desire for personal reward in the future. It is the right thing in the presenet moment just because it is right and is colorless or taint-free. Its great benefit is that you can act in the world withouting creating reaction. […]

Pause

It’s very difficult to be aware of secondary waves rising. We always think that we are reacting in certain situations to the primary stimulus, the ruffle on the surface of consciousness, but in fact, far more than we can ever realize, we are reacting to the predisposition that is in the samskara at the bottom […]

Freedom vs. Samskara

” In Indian and yogic philosophy, samskaras are the mental impressions left by all thoughts, actions and intents that an individual has ever experienced. They can be thought of as psychological imprints. They are below the level of normal consciousness and are said to be the root of all impulses, as well as our innate […]

Happiness

  “Happieness does not consist in aquiring the thinks we think will make us happy, but in learning to like the things we have to do anyway”, said Descartes, french philosopher. So this is the basis of sustained courageous practise, tapas. We need to train oureslves to start by doing a fair bit of what […]

»Yogas citta-vrtti-nirodah.«

»Yogas citta-vrtti-nirodah.«  – Yoga Sutras I/2 Indijski modrec Patanjali v sanskrtskem besedilu “Jogijske sutre” opredeljuje jogo kot umiritev miselnih vrtincev – “vrttis”. Patanjalijev nasvet, kako doseči to stanje, pa z enostavnimi besedami opiše B.K.S. Iyengar v svoji knjigi “Light on life”, pg.94: “If you are happy, pleasant and unselfish in  your behavior towards others, obstacels will […]

Stress

“It is said in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika that the senses are governed by the mind, the mind is governed by the breath, and the breath is governed by the nerves. The yogi learns to use the mind to govern his senses, and he uses his breath to govern the mind. Yet our mind and […]
