Monday Night - Weekly Online Meditation for East Coast: 1982 Yogeshwara Puja Talk

The meditation last night was as usual, with a surprising twist at the end. We do know that the focus in North America is on the establishment of boundaries of behavior within collectives, an essential part of preventing chaos in any large sized organization, especially one which has no entry barriers.

The talk which came up spontaneously was a 1982 gem, on Yogeshwara which explains the definition of being in a state of yoga quite well: When you are in yoga - you are in perfect detached state. You can be eating, drinking and doing, yet your spirit is not "involved". e.g. Eating, but your attention is in yoga with your spirit. So your attention is not occupied by the taste or sensations of eating. The conversation then turned to limitations to any extreme behaviour, called "maryadas" in sanskrit. Mother emphasized the need for avoiding self made relationships, which undermine the larger vision of Sahaja Yoga, as given by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
