Yoga Is Not For Sale

Yoga is not a competitive money making business. It cannot be sold or be bought by anybody. It is within every beings whether we know about it or realize it, or not. It can only be experienced and be shared. It is not something to be trade about.

Yoga cannot be given or sold by someone to us, but it is by knowing the selfless nameless formless attributeless Self or the universal consciousness beyond the modification of the cognitive and perceptive mind.

There is nothing bad or wrong about using the yoga exercises to make it into a commercial money making business. At least many people especially people who are not interested in self-realization are being exposed to the physical practice of yoga even though it is just for the physical and mental level. It is better than taking drugs to feel good and to relax.

There is nothing wrong about doing a business making some money for living. Money is not evil. But yoga is not something can be exchanged with money. It is priceless, and yet it is the most precious thing that exists in all kinds of names and forms.

The teachers are just there to show us the path, guide us in the practice, and help us to “see” the Self in all kinds of names and forms. We all need to realize it in us by ourselves. There is nothing wrong also if we want to show appreciation to our teachers’ compassionate acts, by provide daily essential needs, food and a place to stay, or in the form of money for our teachers to get daily essential needs, food and a place to stay for living. And so, our teachers can have a place to live and look after their own overall well-being, and have the energy for performing their own practice as well as to share their practice and realization with others.

Regardless of “good” people, “bad” people, rich people, poor people, educated people, non-educated people, healthy people, sick people, wise people, ignorant people, happy people, unhappy people, and all kinds of beings, yoga is within all. Everyone can realize yoga through discipline and determination, and return to the one universal nature – unlimited and unconditional peace.

About Yoga

Know thyself. Everything is impermanent and selfless. There is no 'I'. There is no 'I am selfless'/'I am not selfless'. There is no 'I am hurt'/'I need to be healed from hurt'. Non-blind believing, non-blind following, non-blind practicing and non-blind propagating, but be open-minded to inquire the truth of everything. Be free. Be peaceful. Be happy.
