Yoga Is Calming the Modifications of the Mind

Swami Rama of the Himalayas died in 1996. He taught in Chicago when I lived there and his teachings are still with me today. He was one of my root teachers. The mantra he gave me served me well for many years. I even had one of my most powerful meditations ever using it.

He was succeeded by Swami Veda Bharati, a renowned Sanskrit scholar. They both taught me much. I have been in communication with Swami Veda for many years now. I love them both.

I still remember the opening works of the Pantanjali Yoga Sutras from many years ago:

Now and exposition of Yoga will be made.
Yoga is calming the modifications of the mind…

Watch, as Swami Rama teaches on the Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali.

Do you know anyone who would benefit from learning the Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali? Please let them know and please like and share this video.

The post is dedicated to Swami Rama with love and admiration.
