Day 45 Intention ~ To Lead With A Pure Heart
Happy Valentine's Day! In honor of that, although, it is important to do this everyday, today especially, I am going to lead with a pure heart.
In the yoga sutras, sutra II:41 reads,
Sattvasuddhi Saumanasyaikagryen Driyajayatmadarsana Yogyatvani Ca.
This translates to, "Moreover, one gains purity of sattva, cheerfulness of mind, one-pointedness, mastery over the senses, and fitness for Self-realization."
In regards to this sutra, Swami Satchidananda says, "First you understand the body, then the heart is purified as well. When the heart is pure, you are always happy...Just be pure in thought, word, and deed." He says if we practice this purity for even just one day, we will feel the reward and hopefully will be encouraged to practice it again and again.
So, today, I am going to lead with a pure heart and mind and hope that you will too.
