Complexity within Simplicity
Someone told me once a simple message can be just as profound as the most verbose message. The truth doesn't lie in the quantity of words but in the concept conveyed. The sutras that we've covered so far are simple and concise in nature. However, the truth and meeaning behind them is far reaching. For as short as the sutras are it speaks volumes on the breadth of which Yoga permeates through the life of the individual. Yoga as a lifelong process that involves every aspect of life, seems like a trying and rather daunting task to undertake, but a worthwhile one. I think first identifying the vrittis that impede samadhi. Essentially, from these sutras and the class, I have taken that awareness is the first step towards Yoga.
