Connecting with Happiness
Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati
The Progressive Training is imparted with the intention to transmit the vidya of yoga by imbibing the teachings of Swami Sivananda Saraswati of Rishikesh and Swami Satyananda of Munger. This training is given to encourage a deeper experience of yoga, to develop clear independent thought, speech and action and to connect with happiness and creative and positive expressions in life.
Manah Prasad or being happy is the first yama to cultivate as outlined in Hatharatnavalli. Cultivation of this yama will allow the aspirant to connect with the good in life, to develop the positive, and to establish the qualities of dharma and santosha or contentment in life.
