In the first Blog about Bodhiyoga we explain in outline the basic concept which is Bodhiyoga.
This can be found on the website: www.bodhiyoga.es
In this blog we want to continue the exploration of the ideas behind Bodhiyoga so as to clarify what it is we are aiming at as teachers and students.
In an nutshell we can describe the process of practice as an attempt to bring about and sustain more and more positivity and growth in our lives. This means more specifically, developing self awareness through practicing meditation, asana, relaxation and study to bring about deeper levels of self awareness so that we can learn to break free of habitually negative states of behaviour. On the positive side, we draw out deeper levels of creative responsiveness based in ethical behaviour and non-harm. We are the heirs of our states of mind and it is us that is responsible for our states of happiness or suffering, delusion or wisdom. Although we live in a world and that world influences us, we are non-the-less the ones that have to choose how we respond to that stimulus.
