Seed of a Lifestyle

Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati

The purpose of the Yoga Lifestyle Experience is to learn how we can improve our lifestyle by living a regulated life, a life where we try to connect with the positives. If the right seed falls in the mire, then from that seed even a lotus can come out which is totally unaffected by the mire in which the seed had fallen.

Lifestyle is very much your choice, how you perceive it to be. Yoga gives you the seed of lotus, if you allow that to grow it will become a full bloom, full-fledged consciousness, yet the seed has fallen in the grime. If you think that grime is too dirty for a pure seed like the lotus then it will never flower.

Therefore, using the lifestyle as a laboratory where we can plant these lotus seeds to eventually see the emergence of the lotus flower is the purpose of the yogic lifestyle.
