“Established in Yoga, giving up attachment, and with evenness of mind in success and failure, perform actions, O Arjuna. This evenness of mind is known as Yoga.”
Arjuna said: “O Krishna, this Yoga of evenness which has been declared by You,
I do not see its firm endurance, owing to unsteadiness (of the mind).”
“The mind, verily is, O Krishna, restless, turbulent, strong, and obstinate. Its control I deem very difficult to achieve, like that of the wind.”
The Blessed Lord said: “Doubtless, O Mighty-armed, the mind is restless and difficult to control, but it can be controlled, O son of Kunti, by practice and detachment.”
— Srimad Bhagavad Gita.
Yoga is one of the respected means accepted for the achievement of Self-unfoldment. But memorizing “Yogasutras” (Yoga principles) serves no purpose. Hunger cannot be appeased by mere book knowledge of cookery. In a similar way, no one can achieve the goal, viz, realization of the Self by merely expounding how “Rechaka” (exhalation) and “Puraka” (inhalation) are to be done and the manner of performing various asanas (postures). Stay free from the trammels of the body, mind, and intellect. Continuous and regular practice alone can lead the seeker to the desired goal.
