Bihaishum Tejadevanathaji. I am so happy that you have returned to mmika after your time in the world. I met you in December 1998 the same day that I met Beloved Gurudeva in person for the first time attending Satguru Jayanti. You were kind to me, befriended me and inspired me by your devotion and commitment. May I follow your example in another lifetime. Every time we meet I can see the balikana shining forth from your eyes. Shumsimika.
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."
