How the practice of Niyamas lead us from Study to Devotion
“In the village, a sage should go about like a bee, which, not harming Flower, color or scent, Flies off with the nectar.” –The Dhammapada
According to the Sutras of Patañjali the Niyamas (Observances) are the internal principles that form the foundation of a yoga practice. Through a deeper understanding of the Niyamas we can strengthen our desire for self-inquiry, and learn to build on engaging with the Yamas (restraints). In fact the practice of Niyamas allows us to approach the Yamas with graceful ease. Peace with ourselves and with our world becomes expansive — both on and off the mat.
