Explore the yogic principle behind eradicating theafflictions of the mind in order to attain higher levels of consciousness.
“When you start practicingyoga, you will start to love everyone,” says Paramaguru Sharath Jois. In thisvideo, a student asks Jois how he can transform his lower states of beinginto more elevated senses of the world. How can one really love their neighbor,this student wonders. Yoga, Jois says, contains the answer. Yoga enablesus to get rid of the six poisons which affect every human being: kama, krodha, moha, lobha,matsarya, andmada（desire, anger,delusion, greed, envy and sloth）. When we practice yoga, we generate intenseinternal heat which literally burns away the conflict that the poisons induce.The body, post-poison, is pure—capable of unending compassion. Not only doesthe body become purified, says Sharath, but the mind also is able to reach newstates of clarity and understanding.
“当你开始练习瑜伽,你将开始去爱每个人,“Paramaguru Sharath Jois讲到。一个学生问对掌门人如何将低级状态转变成更讲究的感官世界。这个学生对于如何才能真正爱他们的邻居感到好奇。Paramaguru Sharath Jois答复：瑜伽！瑜伽能让我们摆脱六毒，它影响每一个人:(欲望、愤怒、妄想、贪婪、嫉妒和懒惰)。当我们练习瑜伽时,产生强烈的内部热量，从而分解毒物引起的冲突。无休止的毒物传递，在体内发生着。Sharath说,不仅身体可以变得洁净,意识也会更清醒。
