Ancient Yoga Sutra Wisdom

In this clip, Gary Kraftsow talks about the profound wisdom revealed in the ancient Yoga Sutra-s of Patañjali.

“All that arises know that that will pass. Don’t identify with what is impermanent. What arises will cease. That is not who you are.”

“Our pattern is to identify with what arises in your mind and yoga is pointing to a possibility of breaking that identification.”

Transforming Suffering

In this clip, Gary Kraftsow shares insights from Krishnamacharya and the Bhagavad-gitā about transforming suffering.

Gary discusses the steps in transformation: recognition of the reality of suffering, desire to do something about it, and commitment to the process of transformation.
