The Middle Path of the Yogi

Yoga spirituality is a path of balance, moderation and wisdom. It is not a path that encourages extreme behavior in the name of religion, but that seeks to help us to peacefully grow in our spiritual life. In this livestream event, Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya comments on two insightful verses from the Vedic scriptures that explain what is the middle path of the yogi.

“Against fear, against anger, against sloth,
Against too much waking, against too much sleeping,
Against too much eating, against starvation,
A yogi shall always be on his guard.” (Amrita-Nada Upanishad, Verse 28)

“There is no possibility of one’s becoming a yogī, O Arjuna, if one eats too much or eats too little, sleeps too much or does not sleep enough.” (Bhagavad Gita, 6.16)
