Evenness of Mind Is Called Yoga

The teachings of the Bhagavad Gita are presented in the form of a dialogue between Sri Krishna and Arjuna. The Gita can be read as history, but it lends itself readily to being an allegory. In this mode, Arjuna represents the individual soul, and Sri Krishna the Supreme Soul that dwells in every heart. Arjuna’s chariot is the body. The blind king Dhrtarastra is the mind under the spell of maya, ignorance, and his hundred sons are man’s numerous evil tendencies. The battle is an eternal one that is always going on between the powers of good and the powers of evil. The warrior who listens to the advice of the Lord speaking from within will triumph in this battle and attain the highest good. It is an immemorial custom among Hindus to read the Gita as a part of their daily devotions. Without it, prayer and meditation do not seem complete. BG 2:48 – Samatvam yoga ucyate • Evenness of mind is called yoga.

I’ve been off the radar teaching since we moved to CA at the end of June. I had so much to get in place for my family. It’s all coming together. I’m going to start recording a 60 mins audio practice. If you’re interested in balance and evenness in your life, yoga can help. Drop me a line at if you’d like to practice with me, and I’ll hook you up with a recording. I would consider it an honor to share this wonderful, transformational practice with you.
