"For one who is so situated in the Divine consciousness, the threefold miseries of material existence exist no longer; in such a #happy state, one's intelligence soon becomes steady." Bhagavad Gita As It Is ch 2 text 65 ~ ✨ When one doesn't lament the bad nor celebrates the good, when he is steady in both outcomes - then he is situated on the spiritual platform and his actions do not produce karmic results ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Utthita Tadasana variation with Pranamasana (Five Pointed Star Pose with Prayer Pose Hands) ~ ✨ Here's to always remembering to have fun in all that we do. If our intentions are good, we can rest easy leaving the results to Krishna! πŸ•‰οΈβ˜ΈοΈβ˜―οΈ #surrendertotheflow ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ✨ Bhakta = a devotee, one who practices devotion ✨ Bhakti = love of God ✨ #bhaktiyoga = system of cultivating bhakti, or pure devotional service, which is untouched by material sense gratification or philosophical speculation ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Chant πŸ“Ώ HARE KRISHNA, HARE KRISHNA, KRISHNA KRISHNA, HARE HARE / HARE RAMA, HARE RAMA, RAMA RAMA, HARE HARE x108 & Be Happy πŸ’– ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ #harekrishna #bhakti #yogini #spiritualquotes #loveinaction #higherconsciousness #transcendental #yogaforall #knowthyself #selfrealization #beginneryoga #thisfeelsgood #taranaandfriends #namaste #pranamasana #findwhatfeelsgood #iskcon #utthitatadasana #yogaeverydamnday #gita #yogaflow #getoverthehump #humpday #cosmic #sf #manifestation #karma
"From anger, delusion arises, and from delusion bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, intelligence is lost, and when intelligence is lost, one falls down again into the material pool." Bhagavad Gita ch 2 text 63 ~ ✨ See previous post for the prequel to this #shloka ✨ When our lust isn't satisfied, we become angry and cannot see things clearly. And when we can no longer remember things as they are, we have lost our intelligence. ✨ What is intelligence? Knowledge of self as a spirit soul, not material body. If we have lost our intelligence, we cannot be self-realized. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Utthita Parsvakonasana variation (Extended Side Angle Pose) ~ ✨ Been having lotsa fun with my Asana practice lately, taking more time with slight variations on a pose and playing around with raising my body on #tiptoe whenever possible πŸ˜„βœŒοΈπŸ™πŸ˜‡ ✨ Letting our senses indulge in material things leads to lusting for them which leads to entanglement in the material world; let's use our thoughts, words, and actions to manifest the Divine and Spiritual instead!! πŸ•‰οΈπŸ’œ #loveinaction ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ✨ Ananda = transcendental bliss ✨ Asanga = detachment from material consciousness ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Chant πŸ“Ώ HARE KRISHNA, HARE KRISHNA, KRISHNA KRISHNA, HARE HARE / HARE RAMA, HARE RAMA, RAMA RAMA, HARE HARE x108 & Be Happy πŸ’– ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ #harekrishna #bhakti #yogini #wellness #stretch #spiritualquotes #higherconsciousness #transcendental #yogaforall #knowthyself #selfrealization #beginneryoga #sideangle #taranaandfriends #yogawithadriene #findwhatfeelsgood #yogaeverydamnday #gita #yogaflow #mondayinspiration #delusion #cosmic #manifestation #tarana #namaste #utthitaparsvakonasana

"While contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment for them, and from such attachment lust develops, and from lust anger arises." Bhagavad Gita ch 2 text 62 ~ ✨ When we give our senses too much attention (even in our thoughts) and let them seek engagement in materialism (in our actions), we develop attachment for them ✨ When we are attached to some result of our actions, lust for such result develops ✨ When our lust isn't satisfied, we become angry ✨ It is therefore best to control the senses by keeping them always engaged on the primeval energy of this cosmic manifestation, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna ✨ In this way, a higher taste is developed that goes beyond material senses ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Eka Pada Rajakapotasana (One Legged King Pigeon Pose) ~ ✨ I try to remember this especially in my Asana practice! Yoga can feel amazing to the body (and posting about it on social media can boost the false ego), but neither physical gain nor personal pride should be the reason we keep returning to our mats. We return to get back to our true selves, which is spirit souls in the spiritual sky πŸ•‰οΈπŸ’œ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ✨ Acintya = inconceivable ✨ Ajam = uborn Both terms relate to the #atma , or the spirit soul, in each of us. When the spirit soul is in a material body it is called an embodied soul. Unlike the body, the soul is eternal and therefore never born or killed. It is also inconceivable to the human eye and scale. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Chant πŸ“Ώ HARE KRISHNA, HARE KRISHNA, KRISHNA KRISHNA, HARE HARE / HARE RAMA, HARE RAMA, RAMA RAMA, HARE HARE x108 & Be Happy πŸ’– ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ #harekrishna #loveinaction #bhakti #yogi #wellness #ekapadarajakapotasana #spiritualquotes #divine #consciousness #sadhu #transcendental #wisdom #yogaforall #knowthyself #selfrealization #beginneryoga #taranaandfriends #findwhatfeelsgood #energy #yogaeverydamnday #gita #guru #yogaflow #inspirationalquotes #selfcontrol #mindcontrol #cosmic #manifestation #tarana
"One who is able to withdraw his senses from sense objects, as the tortoise draws his limbs within the shell, is to be understood as truly situated in knowledge." Bhagavad Gita ch 2 text 58 ~ ✨ Because our senses are the result of a human body, indulging in sense gratification (for materialistic goals!) only further entagles us in this #maya ✨ Controlling one's senses is a test in his progress to self-realization ✨ Engaging the senses should be reserved for spiritual activities done in Krishna Consciousness: transcendental, loving, devotional service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna ✨ KNOWLEDGE = knowing the distinction between matter & spirit AND acknowledging you are spirit residing in a material body given by nature ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Vasisthasana variation (Side Plank with Tree legs Pose) ~ ✨ In Asana practice, today's #shloka verse is beyond applicable. One of the main reasons I practice yoga on the mat is to disjoin my bodily senses from my mind, breathing through every stretch as if I was in constant Savasana (Corpse Pose) ✨ I'd like my mind, my thoughts, to be in a constant spiritual state of bliss, while my body undergoes the regular struggles of materially conditioned human life ✨ What I hope this process will lead to, as well, is thinking before I act, so that my every action comes from a very clear intention - Krishna Consciousness ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ✨ Yoga = to join, unite, a union ✨ Samadhi = enlightenment, uniting with Supreme Personality of Godhead ✨ Guru = gu is darkness/ignorance and ru is to remove ~ Chant πŸ“Ώ HARE KRISHNA, HARE KRISHNA, KRISHNA KRISHNA, HARE HARE / HARE RAMA, HARE RAMA, RAMA RAMA, HARE HARE & Be Happy πŸ’– ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ #harekrishna #vasisthasana #bhakti #yogi #wellness #spiritualquotes #divine #consciousness #sadhu #mixnmatch #transcendental #wisdom #yogaforall #sacrifice #selfrealization #beginneryoga #taranaandfriends #findwhatfeelsgood #yogaeverydamnday #gita #guru #yogaflow #sixthsense #beherenow #detachment #selfcontrol #sensecontrol #taranacaitanya
