Yoga.styx: Monday " the meaning of Now - Atha"

YOGA SUTRAS: Atha yoga anushasam  (Chapter 1, v.l)
                             Now the discipline of yoga (is being presented) 

Lasaker (2005) states the implication of Now as being:

1.  one is ready to hear, listen or do;
2.  one has already been on a high learning curve; and
3.  learning the meaning of Now becomes ones greatest yogic lesson.

Therefore learning the heart of Yoga transforms one deeply into the present and therefore deeply into Now.

Keep up your yoga and smile!
