These five elements are referred to as the panchamahabhutas in Ayurveda and the pancha tattva in Yoga. They do not only make up the fundamental constituents of our bodies, but the subtle aspects of our internal spiritual being as well. Thus, through the purification of these five elements, we are able to balance ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Yoga Tattva Mudra Vigyan – Healing with Hand Mudras

Yoga is often perceived as a physical practice of postures that helps an individual’s flexibility, balance, and strength. It is also often seen as a form of exercise that includes breathing techniques that helps facilitate calmness, peace of mind, and relaxation within an individual. A daily yoga asana practice helps a practitioner reach their utmost inner potential with these yoga practices and techniques.

The Concept of Togetherness

If only we can let go of our preconceived ideas of duality such as, “There’s us then, there’s them.”

Instead embrace the ideas of non-duality, acceptance, and togetherness. If we are able to let go of these shackling standards and methods of thinking, then everything will come to the light; we will be able to see our reflection in the water when the ripples have come to pass. .

“We cannot see our reflection in running water.

It is only in still water that we can see.” – Taoist Proverb

“Let your actions be based on the thoughts of love and gratitude.

Love is a giving energy and gratitude is a receiving energy.

If you always have these two words in your mind and your actions are based on these concepts, you can naturally give people positive energy.”

Watching Koi fish calms me for some reason.

“You don’t have…

“You don’t have to do anything with your mind, just let it naturally rest in it’s essential nature. Your own mind, unagitated, is reality. Meditate on this without distraction. Know the Truth beyond all opposites. Thoughts are like bubbles that form and dissolve in clear water. Thoughts are not distinct from the absolute Reality.

Relax. There is no need to be critical. Whatever arises, whatever occurs, simply don’t cling to it, but immediately let it go.”

~ Niguma

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle.

But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth.

Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes.

All is a miracle.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh
