Do’s and Dont’s

So the first of the Eight Limbs of Yoga is the YAMAS or ‘Don’ts’:

AHIMSA, non-violence

SATYA, non-lying

ASTEYA, non-stealing

BRAMACHARYA, non-misuse of energy

APARIGRAHA, non-greed

The second of the Eight Limbs of Yoga is the NIYAMAS or ‘Do’s:

SAUCHA, cleanliness

SANTOSHA, contentment

TAPAS, self-discipline

SWADHYAYA, self-study

ISHWARA PRANIDHANA, recognising that there are higher energies

If children were brought up to REALLY understand these five Don’ts and five Do’s, the world would change forever. If adults lived by these five Don’ts and Do’s, children would REALLY understand them.
