Words of Wisdom from Swami Satchidananda

Master Your Self

"Become the master of your mind. Do not allow your thoughts to run where they want. We always want to be the master over others, but we don't turn the tide inward. That's why Yoga begins with 'Yoga Citta Vritti Nirodha,' which means, 'Control of the mind is Yoga.' To control the mind, we have to keep it pure; keep it clean. To keep the mind clean, we have to keep the senses clean. And to keep the senses clean, we have to keep the body clean. Do Hatha Yoga to make the body healthy, so you can control it. Learn to regulate your breathing through pranayama and, gradually, you will be able to control your breath, your senses and then, ultimately, the mind. Once you have the purity of control, you become the master and you will realize the true Self."
