Yoga dictionary. Viparea

Everything is conditioned by the perception of the one who experiences this or that event. The perception of reality is influenced by the so – called “Vritti”-fluctuations of the mind, about which Patanjali writes in the yoga sutras. There are five types of Vritti.

While we were sweating and puffing, Will – agile and sinewy – encouraged “let’s, come on, angels, breathe, hold on.” He called us all angels and constantly smiled. It seems that he was the most correct person in the world to trick me with jivamukti yoga seriously and for a long time 🙂 Continue reading
