On Saucha (Cleanliness) and Mandalas


soapOne of the 5 Niyamas of Patanjali, Saucha or cleanliness goes much deeper than keeping the house clean…. It is about aligning everything so that it is in a place which is most effective for one’s resolve of the moment. This implies forming a mandala, or psychic magnet, with the objects of the environment such  that expense of energy is decreased, and instead of leaking energy it is channeled to pack a potent force. This may mean adhering to Feng Shui, or creating a space dedicated to an altar, both which will channel and focus the attention on one’s purpose.

Om Tat Sat.
