Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students,
In Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Sutra 1:2 gives us the true meaning of yoga practice: To still the every moving fluctuations of the mind. The “Chitta” is like the lens we see the world through. Our Chitta is colored, or clouded, by the vritti’s; the things we have been taught, the society we live in, the family we grew up with and the experiences that have made an impression on us as we grow. These perceptions can keep our mind in constant fluctuation (vritti) and block our awareness of our higher consciousness (Buddhi) or ability to discern, intuit and understand deeper meanings in our lives.
Yoga – to Unite Chitta – Consciousness Vritti – Fluctuations Nirodhah – Quieting of
The practice of yoga is to clear our lenses (Chitta’s) so that we see things as they really are, clear of personal attachment to outcomes, beliefs and misconceptions. This is the goal of yoga. this is why we practice. To clear our bodies and minds of habitual patterns so we can open up to what is truly important and true in our lives. So we can open up to the wisdom of our higher self that is always looking out for our good and the good of all.
