The 4 Fundamental Practices
« on: July 05, 2010, 11:53:47 AM »
Yoga Vasishtam contains a mention of the 4 most important practices:
1. Self Inquiry
2. Sat Sangha
3. Vairagya
4. Contentment, Shanti or Peaceful living.

If a person cannot practice all these, let him practice any one and it would eventually lead him to all the others three.
Infact, sat sangha is that which develops vairagyam, self inquiry and peaceful nature. without vairagyam peaceful living is impossible. without self inquiry vairagyam cannot mature. hence all these practices are just 4 names for the same thing.

maintain any one of these attitudes and the rest will automatically follow. the progress will also be fast.
