Yoga:Poem

Share

When your body is vigorous, Your mind clear, Your spirit exalted, Your blood pure,Your nerves disciplined,Your physique resistant to disease,When you have made your physical frame an instrument Worthy of the Divine Player,

THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF YOGA

When your service is to your Creator and your fellow man,When you perform hateful tasks joyfully,When you are humble in success,When you are cheerful in adversity,When you are indifferent to praise or offence,When you bow down in gratitude for the difficulties and obstacles you encounter

                                 THIS IS THE PROGRESS OF YOGA

When you are master of thought,When you are ruler of emotion,When, amid all vicissitudes your calm enjoyment of Inner peace is complete, When every detail of existence evokes in you wonder and awe,When you feel each moment of life to be a miracle,When you merge your soul in the ocean of infinite silence,

When you truly love all living beings as part of yourself,

THIS IS THE ATTAINMENT OF YOGA

Handed in by a pupil to Nellie Snyders; Complete Yoga – Oct/Nov/Dec 1991
