Asana Aphorism

Postby Vod-Vil » Sat Mar 22, 2008 6:19 am

From Patanjali's aphorisms:
47.When the mind has become thoroughly identified with the boundlessness of space,the posture becomes steady and pleasant.

From Raja Yoga:
47.We can make the posture firm by thinking of the infinite.

What is the connection here?Why would thinking of the infinite sky cause the body to become firm,steady,and pleasant?

If you are identified with boundless space, what is it that is in a firm, steady, and pleasant posture?

who cares by doing certain things certain results happen

:P
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.

I have found that when the mind is also in asana, so to speak, there is no longer and need to try to remain steady. The movement of the body and movement of the mind are connected.
