Yoga means leading a disciplined life. - Swami Satchidananda

Yoga means leading a disciplined life. This means that everything in your home should have its proper place and shouldn’t be scattered here and there. Even when you place your yoga mat on the floor, it should be done in a neat way, not in a haphazard way. Even when you put your clothing on a hanger, put it on nicely, carefully and make it look tidy. There should be discipline in all our habits—our eating, sleeping, working, in everything. That is Yoga. 

Nothing is haphazard in nature; there’s an arrangement in everything. Take a flower and analyze the petals; notice how arranged, how organized they are. There, you see tranquility; there is no restlessness. In yoga we’re going back to nature. In our daily lives, we should learn to have this tranquility in all our actions.

OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.
