Om to you all,
writing this post is an urge for me after looking at the scenario of information available on the internet rather them making someone downgrade.
Here is something we need to know, we are thankful of all the people those who are practicing Yoga around the world.
Here is something for you all, if you guys can read these lines, you will understand that, there are Five (5) signs of a good student….
काक चेष्टा, बको ध्यानं, स्वान निद्रा तथैव च स्वल्पहारी, गृहत्यागी , विद्यार्थी पंच लक्षणं।
:Kak chesta bako dhyanam! Kaak cheshta bako dhyanam.: Swan nindra tathaiwa cha swalpahari, grihtyaagi, vidyarthi panch lakshnam.
1. The one who tries like a Crow (KAK) ( repeatedly ),
2.The one who concentrate like a Crane (Baka) (focused and gazing for one aim only),
3.The one who sleeps like a Dog (Swan) (Sleep less and study more),
4. The one who Eatless (alphari) (eating in limit or eating less), and
5. The one who can Leave home (Grahtyagi) ( no attachment to the home)
In yoga we practice all above, in the form of Asana and Philosophy. these are the guidelines given by our sages/saints to all students.
for the Yogasan, we practice two different once
1 Crow + Posture in Sanskrit called “KAK+Asan”
2. Crane+Posture in Sanskrit it will be ‘Bak+asan’.
from here also we can understand the background and importance of Asana, more than just a physical practice.
Before teaching someone or something than i hope will understand the concept first.
Love and Peace to you all
