We’re now in Singapore airport waiting to fly to Kuala Lumpur for one night, then on to Mauritius.
While in Honolulu waiting to depart for Tokyo, one of the Chinese Asian Pacific Economic Conference delegates from Beijing came over and chatted with us to learn more about our rudraksha beads and what kind of yoga we do. He said that many people in China are learning hatha yoga, while only a handful are learning about the other aspects of yoga.
Dharma is religious patterns which when followed promote the wellbeing of the individual, the family and society. Patterns so that the soul matures and gets closer to God, closer to realizing the Divinity within. Dharma is: "The orderly fulfillment of an inherent nature or destiny," working on instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Destiny is fixed: Realization. Personal dharma, "your own perfect pattern in life", is different for the sannyasin and the householder.
