There's no meanings in our yoga practice if we are constantly being disturbed by the object of the senses...

It doesn't matter for how many years we have been doing yoga practice, or sitting for meditation everyday, there's no meanings in all these practice if we are constantly being disturbed or affected or influenced or determined by all the names and forms that our mind perceives through the senses of what it sees, hears, smells, taste, touches, and thinks...

We may go for yoga classes regularly, or go for some yoga retreats or yoga courses for many times, or do our own self-practice at home everyday, or teaching yoga classes to many other people for years, but if we didn't practice non-attachment towards all the names and forms that our body and mind is experiencing from moment to moment, and are constantly being unhappy and complain about things that we don't like or don't agree with, and constantly criticize other people who think, speak and act differently from us, then we are not practicing yoga at all...

Pride and arrogance is one of the characteristics of the ego...

To practice yoga is to annihilate the ego. And to annihilate the ego is to eliminate the pride and arrogance in us...

Guarding our own eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind is our every moment yoga practice and meditation...

Not generate craving and aversion towards the names and forms that the mind likes and doesn't like, agree and disagree with...

This is our yoga practice.

When there is no more pride and arrogance, we will find that there's nothing to be complained about in our life.
