Yama

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Ekanthji says that the human being progresses gradually, slowly, step by step. With mission of life dawned, the values of life get set and that brings discipline in life. And disciplined life keeps marching towards the goal. There is no wavering but steady moving onwards. He further says :

The mission of life brings a new vision to the karyakartas. It breathes a new charm into everything. It vouchsafes a new message which makes everything in the world meaningful. It brings about a qualitative change in the personality of the man and he looks towards the world with a subjective attitude. Old values change and new values arise. The emergence of new values is most important, because it brings a strict discipline to the man, not the discipline which is imposed by a higher authority, but a discipline of 'do's' and 'don'ts' in the light of his mission. Vidhi (What must be done) and Nishedh (what must be avoided) arise in the man. The five yamas of the yoga philosophy Ahimsa (Non-violence) Satya (Truth), Asteya (Non-stealing), Brahmacharya (Celibacy) and Aparigraha (Non-possessiveness) are mostly Nishedh and the five Niyamas Tapa (Austeriy), Shaucha (Purity), Swadhyaya (Self-study), Santosh (Contentment) and Ishwarapranidhan (Submission to God) are Vidhis.

The Yamas and Niyamas are important for the total development of the karyakarta. The Ashtang Yoga of Sage Patanjali begins with Yamas - the Don'ts.

The main theme of my life is to take the message of Sanatana Dharma to every home and pave the way for launching, in a big way, the man-making programme preached and envisaged by great seers like Swami Vivekananda. - Mananeeya Eknathji
