ASTEYA ~ Non-stealing ~ 

The Yamas Series: 3 of 5

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 43


If you have everything and if you have the ability to have everything, you will never be in need.  ~



Welcome to this episode and the third of a five-part series on the yamas. Yamas are the first limb of yoga in the Ashtanga yoga system.


The literal translation of the word Yama in Sanskrit is “restraint”. Religious texts of Hinduism and Jainism outline five yamas.


In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, asteya is described as the emptiness that is caused by a deep loss, unfulfilled desire, and the resulting lack or insecurity, jealousy or resentment that we focus on rather than looking inward ~ which always guides us to what we can and still need to do to support our well being; and to feel fulfilled, content, peaceful, and joyful.


According to the teachings in the Yoga Sutra (2.37), when we perfect the principle of asteya, riches comes to us. Although material wealth may unexpectedly appear when we need it, true spiritual wealth comes when we’re complete and whole within ourselves.


We don’t need to envy or take from others – whether in their time, their energy, or to seek attention and approval in order to feel good about ourselves.


We can rest in the unconditional love and wisdom that resides within us and experience the wholeness of our true self.


From this sense of inner fulfillment, we naturally want to give to others rather than to take from them.


Sending you great 💜 love...


Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...


love, dorothy
