Asana and nephesh

Postby gerry456 » Thu Nov 12, 2015 7:21 am

What does regular asana do for our relationship with our nephesh? What about our ruach?
2.19 They shall rejoice, our chosen: who sorroweth is not of us.

2.21 We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world.

It tends to tame the animal.

What about our ruach?

Not much. Could enhance (out of necessity) ability to concentrate. Indirectly, it provides a way to gets signals from the body out of the way of the mind to reduce distractions.
