BRAHMACHARYA ~ Non-excess ~
The Yamas Series: 4 of 5
The WISDOM podcast Season 3 Episode 45
~ Brahmacharya as a moral discipline is how we turn the mind inward and how we balance the senses, leading us to freedom from dependencies and cravings. ~
Welcome to this episode and the fourth 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.
Brahmacharya reminds us to approach each day and each action with a sense of sacredness rather than indulgence so that we may experience and live life in wonder and privilege rather than the misgivings of greed and excess.
Brahmacharya—the moderation of the senses— is one of the key practices for managing sensory cravings. As the fourth yamas, or ‘restraints’, brahmacharya helps us cultivate self-awareness and transform habits that are out of sync with our spiritual aspirations.
Sending you great 💜 love...
Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...
