THESE WORDS BY B.K.S. IYENGAR FROM HIS INVALUABLE “LIGHT ON THE YOGA SUTRAS OF PATANJALI” TRULY DESCRIBE THE MEANING AND PROCESS OF MEDITATION.
Quieting your mind – “chittavrtti nirodhah” in Sanskrit – is not only a citation from the Sutras but a guidance to a more peaceful life.
How can we achieve this? Many ways have been tried, some successfully, some not. But daily meditation seems to have always been one of proven methods. I feel that finding ten minutes a day for yourself is an achievable task.
But if you do not have time for it, just try going for a quiet walk, by yourself or with the loved one. That works too.
