Sthira Sukham Asanam – That Which Is Steady And Which Is Comfortable….


When we are comfortable we are not steady. We are not sitting erect. But when we are erect, we are so stiff. We are not comfortable. You get it? You are erect, steady and at the same time comfortable. Sthira sukham āsanam.

You know, when you are happy, you are so up and when you are unhappy, you are so down. Your mind swings up and down, up and down. You are too much excited or you put yourself down. This is called dwandwa or duality. Āsana is that which enables us to maintain the equanimity. Āsana is not just doing exercise. Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shanka
