This teachings is for those who are interested in learning and practicing yoga and/or buddhism, and to be looking after the mental health of oneself and others. Those who are not interested in the teachings and practice of yoga and/or buddhism, or looking after the mental health of oneself and others, this is not for them.
No doubt that hypocrisy, untruthfulness, backbiting and backstabbing are very common and normal family, cultural and social values and practice that exist in many family ties, siblings, relationships, friendships, or in any kind of social connections, in order to keep those family ties, relationships, friendships and social connections to be continuously 'existing' and 'surviving', and to maintain certain degrees of so called 'peace and harmony' or 'bonding and cooperation' in all those human's family ties and social connections, however, those who truly want to practice yoga and/or buddhism, they need to abandon such common and normal values and practice, of what many minds think and believe as a 'normal', 'healthy', 'successful' and 'meaningful' way of life and conduct.
It's everyone's freedom for what and how they think, believe, practice, behave, act and react, or not. There's neither right nor wrong, and the world of human beings is very much being built on such hypocrisy and untruthfulness,
or else all kinds of human ties and connections will not be able to sustain or
survive, unless the minds are free from the influence of ignorance, egoism and impurities, where all kinds of human ties and connections are not being built on hypocrisy and untruthfulness, that exist under the absence of hypocrisy, untruthfulness, backbiting and backstabbing.
It's understandable that it can be very hard and challenging for many people to not being hypocrite and untruthful at all, or to be completely straightforward and truthful in all kinds of ties and connections, while at the same time, they might not be free from dislikes, disagreements and offensiveness towards certain or many things, and hence, they would prefer to express their dislikes, disagreements and offensiveness behind people's back, thinking that it won't cause any damaging effects.
Some people would think and believe while telling themselves and others, "Don't be so naive. There's nothing wrong, and it's very good to practice hypocrisy and untruthfulness, if we want to survive in this society, and to maintain certain degrees of 'peace and harmony' among everyone, while getting the cooperation from some others in order to achieve what we want to achieve. If we have any unhappiness, disagreements and complaints about some others, we can express it behind people's back behind closed door. If we want to hurt or attack our enemy, we always do it quietly behind their back. That's the way to become highly successful in this world." That's people's freedom of thinking, belief, desire and behavior, however, it's the opposite of the teachings and practice of yoga and/or buddhism.
That's why the essential teachings and practice of yoga and buddhism emphasized on the observation of renunciation and dispassion, seclusion and solitude, straightforwardness and truthfulness, and the eradication of egoism and impurities of greed, discontentment, dissatisfaction, anger, hatred, jealousy, pride, arrogance, fear, offensiveness, defensiveness, violence, ill thinking and ill will, and etc.
The minds that are mentally and emotionally dependent would be disturbed and hurt by the hypocrisy, untruthfulness, backbiting and backstabbing coming from others, especially coming from their own beloved family members and friends.
The minds that are mentally and emotionally independent are not at all being disturbed or hurt by such ignorant impure behavior of anyone, including one's beloved family members and friends. Not that they are emotionless, but they are aware of how the minds behave, act and react under the influence of ignorance, egoism and impurities. Neither will these minds be offended or intimidated by anything or anyone.
Those who are not interested in learning and practicing yoga and/or buddhism, who are not interested in looking after the mental health of oneself and others, they don't need to observe all these yoga and buddhism teachings and practice, and continuing their 'normal, healthy, successful and meaningful' way of life and conduct, as they are. Be happy.
