I have been following this site and it’s resources since 1997. Since then, it has kept growing n growing , keeping up with the modern web design trends, functionality, usability, colour whilst keeping the content clutter free, and also free from bias. Furthermore, the knowledge presented is well researched, has clarity and profound wisdom. I am truly grateful to Gurudeva and Bodhinatha, and all the monks and donors who have helped manifest and keep alive a tiny part of the lofty akashic library.
In Patanjali's comments on the niyamas he speaks on religious action, kriya, bringing about samadhi and attenuating the kleshas. We think we have to be detached from that which we are attracted to but we also need to overcome aversion. It's easier to be finite, to have a past and a future than to be infinite, without past and future, so, we're clinging to life. The kleshas are the root source of karma. Quiet mental activity produced by the kleshas through meditation and achieve santosha, peace of mind. "Men of discrimination see sorrow in all experience."
