The application of the teachings of Sage Vasishtha made Sri Rama an idol and a hero, and he continues to be the inspiration for all people in the Indian subcontinent and beyond. Not because he is God, not because he is considered to be an avatara, but because he became the perfect human being. This is the message of Yoga Vasishtha: how to become the best person that you can be, your perfect self, and apply the principles of Sage Vasishtha in your life.
The yoga of Sage Vasishtha was the theme of the satsangs Swamiji gave in March 2012 at Ganga Darshan Vishwa Yogapeeth. The Yoga Vasishtha is a treatise in which Rishi Vasishtha instructs Sri Rama on how to overcome his depression and actively engage in the world while remaining unaffected by it. Selecting the key discussions, Swamiji explains how this ancient work provides fresh motivation and positivity to manage the challenges of daily life, while cultivating deep spiritual wisdom and perfection in action. He deals with the subject in a clear, step-by-step manner, making it easy to comprehend and applicable to the lives of all.
