Yoga {4} ~ The Seven Laws Of Yoga

As interpreted by Chopra and Simon, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga are:

  • Law of Pure Potentiality: Since you are an unshakeable part of what exists in the physical world, you are also infinitely creative, limitless and eternal.
  • Law of Giving and Receiving: You must give and receive to experience love, abundance, and anything positive you wish to reverberate through your existence.
  • Law of Karma (Cause and Effect): Every action generates a returning reaction. If you choose positive actions that bring forth happiness and success, you will, in turn, receive such energy. If you choose negative actions that bring forth pain or suffering, they will boomerang back to you.
  • Law of Least Effort: By harnessing your energy and offering no resistance, you allow your actions to be motivated by love, tapping into the infinite power of the universe as you do less, yet accomplish more.
  • Law of Intention and Desire: When you quiet the mind and introduce your intentions through pure potentiality, you galvanize the universe into action, allowing your desires to manifest with ease.
  • Law of Detachment: Everything, at this moment, is happening as it should be. There is no need to resist or force. Simply intend for everything to unfold as it should, take the action that’s necessary, and allow the results to happen.
  • Law of Dharma: By expressing your unique gifts to serve others, you will experience unlimited love, abundance, and true fulfillment in your life.

~Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha/ॐ गं गणपतये नम~

Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha (Sanskrit: ॐ गं गणपतये नमः) is a powerful prayer and mantra comprised of four parts that are all in praise of the Hindu god, Lord Ganesha. Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha can be translated as “My salutations to Lord Ganesha.” This mantra is from the Ganapati Upanishad, a long Sanskrit writing from the Vedas all about and in adoration of Ganesha.

Om is thought to constitute the divine in the form of sound. It is the universal sound where its utterance is considered the sound of creation itself.

Gam is a bija mantra, or the seed mantra, for Ganesha or Ganapati. These words are used interchangeably to indicate the same god in Hinduism.

Ganapataye is actually the alternate name for Ganesha, which is Ganapati. The ending ‘aye’ indicates that something is for or to Ganapati.

Namaha means salutations. This word is in most prayers and is also in the commonly used word “namaste”; which means my salutations to you. Thus, the mantra means “Salutations to Lord Ganesha.”

~Ardhanarishvara~

Ardhanarishvara is the name of a half male, half female Hindu deity who is a combination of Shiva and his consort, Parvati. The name comes from the Sanskrit, ardha, meaning “half”; nari, meaning “woman”; and ishvara, which means “lord” or “personal god.” The name is typically translated as “lord who is half woman.”

This deity symbolizes both the nature of the supreme deity (Ultimate Reality) as lacking gender, and the unity of male and female in the creation of the universe.
