In yoga we study the five yamas and niyamas (character traits) taught by Patanjali. While visiting a monastery in Hawaii, Ramakrishna Ananda learned five additional yamas and niyamas which he shares here. Discover how all ten yamas and niyamas will help you live connected with Spirit and open to receiving whatever you need.
Yoga is connection. It comes from the word yuj meaning yoke, to consciously join together. Normal life is disconnection and separateness. We have egos and often feel separate from others. Through yoga we connect with the infinite Source of all creation. When we’re connected, we receive whatever we need. We all need strength, peace, faith, truth, meaning, love, abundance and joy. As we connect with these states of consciousness, we are open and able to receive them.
We ask you to commit two hours a week to selfless service. This service can be anything you choose ranging from helping a family member or neighbor to volunteering at a nonprofit organization.
This commitment is solely between you and your inner self.
