Yoga in Sanskrit means to unite.
In the last year yoga and meditation are became part of my daily routine. They give me everyday strenght, peace, happiness and consciousness of myself, not only phisically but also mentally. Every moment it's a new discovery, so I felt the need to share that in my pictures.
Yogini: Silvia Manca.
Let the past fade,
the future disappear,
to the present.
Live in peace.
Practice means choosing, applying the effort, and doing those actions that bring a stable and tranquil state.
Better than a thousand useless words is one useful word, hearing which one attains peace.
You're wise, you're free,
not stuck in dispute.
You promote peace,
live without desire,
grow in the world
like a lotus
from mud and water.
Yoga is the control of the modifications of the mind field.
By slight effort and meditating on the unlimited
(posture becomes firm and pleasant).
The wise are silent,
stand back from arguments,
keep the mind
Mind precedes all mental states. Mind is their chief; they are all mind-wrought. If with a pure mind a person speaks or acts happiness follows him like his never-departing shadow.
The wise depend on nothing,
have no likes or dislikes,
Lamentation and meanness run off them
like water from a lotus leaf.
When the modifications of mind have become weakened, the mind becomes like a transparent crystal, and thus can easily take on the qualities of whatever object observed, whether that object be the observer, the means of observing, or an object observed.
