Yoga Self−Development

  You must not give yourself such hard tasks of Self−Development as might be too heavy and beyond the present strength of your Will. In denying yourself you develop self−control. In forcing yourself to do certain things you develop powers of Self−Expression. In one the Will moves along negative lines. In the other along positive lines. Both are necessary. The man who cannot control and command himself can never develop and express Himself. But be sure to begin with easy things and then as you gain in confidence you may attempt more difficult feats.


The man who can work at his aim with perseverance and denies himself the mess of pottage of present indulgence in view of some future gain develops Will−Power. So in training your Will to 'resist', you must, as a first step, sternly refuse to indulge impulses, desires and tendencies not in consonance with the dictates of your Higher Self. You must actually go out of your way and “deny” yourself the little or great “comforts” to which you are or have been accustomed. The strongest−willed man is he who has the greatest control over his inclinations, and who can 'force' himself to do such things as he is naturally most inclined to do. This is a characteristic which cannot be developed in a day. There are some children and even grown−up men and women who mistake their 'obstinacy' for Will−Power. They want a thing and when they do not get it they tear their hair, gnash their teeth, stamp their feet and fly into a terrible passion. Since people think that these uncontrolled creatures are strong−willed while all that you could say about them is that they are utter slaves to their desires.

Find a quiet place as far as possible, where the air is pure and the surroundings soothing and pleasant. After a bath or a thorough rubbing of the body from top to toe, with a wet towel, on an empty stomach, take this exercise: Send a current of holy thought to everyone, on planes seen and unseen, north and south, east and west, engage in meditation—take anyone of the meditation exercises you like. When you are perfectly calm and relaxed, seat yourself cross−legged, assuming any posture that comes easiest to you, with head, neck and chest held in a straight line and the weight of the upper parts of the body resting on ribs. Keep the region about the waist quite free. Loosen the cloth there out and out. Now inhale air slowly and steadily through right nostril after closing left nostril with your finger as long as it takes to count sixteen mentally. Close both nostrils, holding the inspired air within and count sixty−four. Then very slowly exhale the air through the left nostril for as long as it takes to count thirty−two. You must begin with a 4 second inhalation, 16 second retention and 8 second exhalation. Instead of dry counting you might improve yourself decidedly by repeating the word “Fearless” as many times holding mentally that dominant idea back of the word. Practise 5 pranayamas mornings and evenings for one week daily. Increase to 10 next week. Work up to 20. Go slowly. Practise as long as you like, but not less than 6 months. Be serious and earnest. This is not for non−serious minds. This exercise will augment digestive power, steady heart−action, make the body light and the mind calm. It shall help also miraculously in your Soul−Unfoldment. During this practice be pure in all ways. Observe Bramhacharya. Practice mental concentration and spiritual meditation. Don't talk much with others. Don't encourage any but holy society. Don't sleep much. Don't work very hard. Keep your emotions well−in−hand. Be always engaged mentally and physically. Be hopeful and cheerful. Never encourage negative thinking. It shall do wonders for you.


Learn Yoga exercise Physical Yoga Exercise:  Exercise 1
Stand straight, facing a corner of the room with bare feet about 14 or 15 inches from the corner itself, arms straight out, even with shoulders or perhaps two inches below, hands resting on the two−side walls, chest out, abdomen in. Now lean forward towards the corner, without moving the feet or bending the knees. Aim lightly to touch the corner with the chest, while holding the head and abdomen as far back from the corner as possible, arms and hands slipping forward on the walls in a straight line with shoulders. Resume first position without moving the feet or lowering the arms, and repeat. Make the forward movement slowly, at the same time inhaling through nostrils a slow, full breath; put your whole effort into stretching the chest forward and upward (careful not to bruise yourself against wall) and head and abdomen backward, thus straightening the back at the shoulders. Hold the chest to the corner a moment, holding the breath likewise, then slowly resume original upright position, slowly exhaling through slightly open lips at the same time bending the head forward towards the chest. As you lean forward toward the corner, mentally keep count of your exercise one, two, three, etc. As you resume the upright position, exhaling and bending the head forward mentally, affirm “I am fearless, pure, strong.” Make these movements always slowly, deliberately, with the closest attention. Begin with 5 or 6 movements and raise to 20 at a time.

  Yoga Exercise No. 2. 

Stand straight about two feet from the wall. Place the palms on the wall−level with the shoulders. Without moving the feet or bending the body, lean forward slowly, inhaling slowly as you do so, until the chest touches the wall, head back; then push yourself slowly to an upright position slowly exhaling as you do so. Repeat 10 times or more.

 Exercise No. 3

Clasp the hands behind. As you slowly inhale extend the clasped hand slowly downwards as far as possible, straightening arms at elbow and lowering shoulders as much as possible, at the same time extending and lifting the chest as far as you can. Hold the breath and the position a moment only, shoulders down, chest out and up, abdomen in, then release the hand and slowly exhale. A rather vigorous exercise. So go slowly.

 Exercise No. 4

Stand straight, arms extended even with the shoulders, head up; tense muscles of right arm doubling slowly at
elbow and hand only, until the clenched fist touches the shoulders; at the same time tensing the neck muscles,
chin up, and turning the head slowly to face the clenched fist. Repeat with the left arm. The arms from
shoulder to elbow must be kept in a horizontal position.

Exercise No. 5

Stand straight, hands at sides. Bend as far over to the right as possible, slowly; then to the left as far as
possible. Repeat 10 times.

Exercise No. 6

Stand straight, arms at sides. Lean as far forward as you can without bending the knees and roll the body clear
around in a circle to the right, arms and body as limp as possible. Repeat 5 times. Then roll five times to the left.

Exercise No. 7

Stand straight. Extend arms easily in front. Wave them backwards and upwards in a sort of reversed
swimming movement, until they meet overhead; at the same time bending backward as far as possible slowly
inhale a full breath. Now bend forward, exhaling breath, taking care not to bend the knees, until your fingers
touch your toes, head hanging as low as possible, toes and head as limp as possible, fingers reaching towards
the floor. Repeat upright position. Keep the knees straight throughout. Aim to stretch the entire body and
hands upward and backward as far as possible, with the upward motion of the arms. If you can't touch the
floor without bending the knees, just come as near it as you can. Practice will limber you up until you can
touch it.

Exercise No. 8

Lie full length on the back of the floor, hands clasped under head. Tense the muscles of the right leg, raising
the knee slowly until it touches or almost touches the body, at the same time bending the foot downward as far
as possible, stretching the toes towards the floor. Now slowly lower the right leg, still tense, towards the floor,
straightening the knee and turning the toe upward towards the body. As the right leg is being lowered, raise
the left one upward in the same way tensing the muscles, knee to chest, toes stretching upward; as the left leg
goes down, point the toes and foot toward the knee 5 times, increasing gradually to 10 times.

yoga exercises Yoga power
This power is by no means the especial and peculiar possession of some divinely gifted individuals. Everyone can cultivate it. It is in you and needs vigorous stirring up as a condition of its awakening. There are some men who are born great; others are made so by certain unforeseen circumstances; a third class becomes great through conscious and intelligent effort.

Self Confidence

The faculties of Courage and Confidence are essentially important. Nothing weakens the will so much as Fear and lack of Self−Confidence. Self−Confidence is not blustering self−conceit. That within you which says “I CAN” when calmly and doggedly backed by your “I Will” when deliberately translated into action develops Will−Force and commands startling results.

Words of Wisdom

Always hold these words before your passive Mind:

power yogaWill−Force is the power of Re−action. It can render all the other mental functions active or passive. It is the DETERMINATIVE faculty and is affected most of all by the JUDGMENT. On the lower plane of mind, Will−Power manifests as Desire and is reciprocally influenced by outside attractions as well as repulsions. On this plane the Will is not free. But when it draws the volition for externalizing itself from Within in the light of the Higher Reason, then indeed is it Will−Power. On the material the human will is a slave; on the spiritual plane it is the sovereign. It may then be called the “awakened” will.
