    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    The householder who is content with whatever he happens to obtain, who has given up inner attachment, and who has completed all the practices becomes liberated by means of the techniques of Yoga
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    Success arises for he who is intent upon the practice. How can it arise for he who does not practice? Thus the finest yogis should carry out the practice according to the rules
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    The wise man who regularly reads this treatise from beginning to end is sure gradually to obtain success in Yoga
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    The magical science of Hatha is to be very well guarded by the yogi desirous of success. Guarded, it becomes powerful; made public, it becomes powerless
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    Having duly pleased his guru and obtained this finest of mantras, even an unlucky yogi can achieve success by means of this technique
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    When this observance has been performed, the goddess Tripurabhairavi, created by the earlier worship, appears and grants wishes
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    Absorbed in it, his mind one-pointed, the wise yogi should make one lakh oblations before the goddess in the manner described in the sacred texts and then repeat the mantra three lakh times
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    After receiving this mantra from his guru, the yogi should repeat all of its syllables in sequence, neither quickly nor slowly, his mind free from doubt
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    This triad of seed syllables grants the rewards of both worldly enjoyment and liberation. The yogi striving to achieve perfection should master these three mantras
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    In the heart is the Kamaraja, which looks like a bandhuka flower. In the Ajna lotus is the seed syllable called Shakti which looks like ten million moons
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    In the middle of the lotus with four petals in the Muladhara is the Vagbhava seed syllable, flashing like a bolt of lightning
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    Now I shall teach the best mantra practice, by means of which the pleasures of this world and the next are sure to arise
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    The householder who constantly applies himself to Yoga does not incur sin or merit, even if he performs sinful deeds when carrying out his duties for the good of the world
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    The practice is to be performed indoors at home, shunning company. Company is to be kept outdoors for the sake of everyday business, without attachment
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    The yogi must, but must, abandon company. He has to do it completely and utterly, otherwise he will not get liberation. Truly, I have spoken the truth
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    The clever man should not talk too much with the good men in the assembly. He should do enough to take care of his person, avoiding excessive chatter
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    Without Hatha, Raja Yoga does not succeed, nor does Hatha succeed without Raja Yoga. So the yogi should practice both until they are complete. Hence he undertakes Hatha following the path of a good guru
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    Restraining their senses from all objects of the senses, wise men live as if in deep sleep, free from all attachment
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    Free from all attachment, the yogi should take refuge in that seed in which all things vanish by means of realizing that they have been incorrectly understood and dismissing them
    Yaroslav Smirnovhas quoted2 months ago
    When the yogi identifies himself with the individual and supreme selves he should abandon the pair ‘I’ and ‘that’ and meditate on that which is undivided
