The teachings of yoga and buddhism is universal.
The realization towards the truth of selflessness and impermanence in all and everything being perceived through this perceptive mind, as well as the perceptive mind itself, is universal.
If there's something non-universal, bias, prejudice or discriminative that appeared to be coming from someone who is identifying oneself as a yoga or buddhism practitioner or teacher, that discriminates certain qualities of names and forms that the mind dislikes or disagrees with, based on one's particular worldly egoistic thinking, belief, values and practice, know that it has nothing to do with the teachings of yoga or buddhism. It's deriving from the mind that is still functioning under the influence of ignorance and egoism.
Without the direct realization, but only through impure intellectual understanding towards the teachings of yoga or buddhism about selflessness and impermanence, the intellectual kind and thoughtful minds might be worried about the teachings of yoga and buddhism might be misunderstood as well as misused by the selfish ignorant minds to be 'the justification' or 'the way of by passing the consequences of actions' for performing intentional selfish actions out of selfish intentions, or performing random ignorant actions out of ignorance, that might hurt oneself and/or others.
The minds that are kind and thoughtful, but are still under the influence of ignorance and egoism, might be thinking and believing that there's a need of discrimination towards or distinction between good beings and bad beings, goodness and evilness, or good behavior and bad behavior, particularly to be imposing certain control, oppression, rules and regulations, as well as condemn, disciplinary and punishment towards bad beings, evilness and bad behavior, to keep the world in proper order.
These minds might be disliking, disagreeing with, rejecting and going against the teachings and realization of 'non-duality', 'non-separateness', 'non-discrimination', 'neither good nor bad', 'identificationlessness', 'selflessness', or 'all and everyone can attain liberation regardless of the different states of the minds and behaviors'.
This is due to the minds are functioning under the veil of ignorance and egoism, that are analyzing and understanding these terms from the teachings of yoga and buddhism from the intellectual level under the impure intellect, and not through direct realization.
Imposing certain control, oppression, rules and regulations, as well as condemn,
disciplinary and punishment towards bad beings, evilness and bad
behavior, doesn't eliminate ignorance from the minds and doesn't stop the ignorant minds from being ignorant and behaving ignorantly. The history in this world and what is happening now, has been reflecting that. A world that is in 'proper order', where the minds don't hurt one another either intentionally or randomly, has to come from the minds themselves be free from ignorance.
The nature law of cause and effect, of actions and the consequences of actions is indeed the selfless governor of everything. The truth of selflessness, and the realization towards the truth of selflessness, non-duality, non-separateness, non-discrimination, neither good nor bad, identificationlessness, or all and everyone can attain liberation from the veil of ignorance and suffering deriving from ignorance non-discriminatively, doesn't change, or remove, or by pass the law of nature, of cause and effect, of actions and the consequences of actions in this world of selflessness and impermanence. Realizing the truth of selflessness and impermanence doesn't change the truth of selflessness and impermanence in all the selfless impermanent names and forms.
The minds that truly attained direct realization towards the truth, that are free from the veil of ignorance and egoism, don't intentionally escape or by pass the law of cause and effect, or the consequences of actions. They have no intention or desire to perform any actions that would benefit or hurt oneself and/or others. It's only the minds that are functioning under the veil of ignorance and egoism, would be having the desire and intention to be performing selfish actions out of selfish intentions and desires, or randomly performing ignorant actions out of ignorance, while thinking that they would be escaping, or untouched by, or by passing the law of cause and effect, or the consequences of actions, using the terms of selflessness, selfless actions, inaction in actions, non-duality, non-separateness, non-discrimination, neither good nor bad, identificationlessness, and so on, under the impure intellectual understanding, to be justifying their selfish or ignorant actions as 'non-action in actions' out of selflessness.
Obviously, the minds that are thinking in such way, they are under the influence of the veil of ignorance and egoism.
The ignorant and egoistic thinking and believing that "I am selfless, my actions are selfless and are neither good nor bad, and are free from the consequences of actions," while either intentionally performing selfish actions out of selfish intentions and desires, or randomly performing ignorant actions out of ignorance, doesn't remove or change the law of cause and effect, or make the consequences of actions disappear or non-existing. Similarly, the 'positive thinking' of 'thinking and believing that everything is positive', doesn't change the truth of what things are. 'Positive thinking' doesn't remove ignorance or ignorant actions and their consequences in the world.
The selfless elements of fire, water, air or earth have no intention or desire to be existing and being the influencing elements that are supporting or destroying anything or anyone to be arising, changing, and passing away, but selfless actions are ceaselessly happening, out of selflessness, followed by selfless consequences deriving from the respective selfless actions out of selflessness. But these elements are untouched or undetermined by the actions and the consequences of actions, due to its nature of selflessness.
Even though the teachings of yoga and buddhism is universal, however, it appears to be non-universal for certain minds coming from the minds themselves attached strongly onto certain worldly egoistic thinking, belief, values and practice, being conditioned to think and judge everything based on those thinking, belief, values and practice, and hence, arise the autonomous reaction of dislike, disagreement, rejection, or even offensiveness in the minds towards the teachings that appeared to be contradicting with their particular thinking, belief, values and practice.
The path of self-inquiry appears as it is, upon the minds have awareness towards the ignorance in themselves, and be ready to let go attachment towards the existing worldly egoistic thinking, belief, values and practice in the mind, to be opened towards inquiring towards the truth of everything, free from agreements and disagreements based on particular thinking and belief, without blind-following, blind-agreeing/disagreeing, blind-believing/disbelieving, blind-practicing or blind-propagating any teachings or belief and practice, including the teachings of yoga and buddhism.
Inquire the truth of everything.
