There are five different YAMA’S…
Parigraha is the increasing orientation towards material things. The less time we spend on our material possessions, the more we have to spend on investigating all that we call Yoga. We will learn to enjoy what we have rather than constantly seeking things we don’t have and never being satisfied in life. It is a SCIENTIFIC FACT that the more money and material possessions we have, the more stressful we become.
When these five behaviours outlined become part of a person’s daily life they become kinder and more considerate, our presence will create pleasant and friendly feelings in people around us.
And if we remain true to the idea of SATYA (Truthfulness) everything we say will be truthful. We will become trustworthy.
