Yoga Sutras 1:6
(The vritis are) right and wrong conceptions of what is , imagination, sleep, and memory. All vritis, in stirring the waters of feeling, distort the reality that is soul-Bliss.
Boy is it hot! I hope this blog post finds you enjoying the start of summer. We have been studying the Yoga Sutras for a couple of month’s now and learning what Patanjali wanted to express to us in his writings. As we dig deeper into the Sutras we find ourselves taking apart little pieces of this vast puzzle of how to live our yogic lives.
Sutra 1:6 tells us that practicing meditation and calm wisdom is the best way to avoid the illusion of our vrittis (desires).
Think of God, pray for his grace and ask to seek his presence in meditation.
Srikrishna said in the Bhagavad Gita: “Get away from my ocean of suffering and misery!”
Don’t worry if that quote confuses you, it should. We will study the Gita in 2018 after we better understand the Sutras.
Namaste With love,
