Be True ~ Satya
After Ahimsa, the precept of non-harming, Satya is also a founding yogic principal. It is the ground from which the yoga teachings are based; it is the source from where it comes and to where it ultimately returns.
Satya is the second Yama (Sanskrit word meaning relational ethics) of the first step on the Eight-fold yogic path. Satya (Sanskrit word for truth) is the application and heartfelt commitment to truth. Cultivating being true in our lives- our relationships, communications and actions in the world.
Aligning with Reality is where many philosophical thinkers and spiritual Gurus point to and from where authenticity and insight arise to support our lives.
Yet we are often veiled by the conditioning and mental constructs of our family and cultural and societal expectations. We can forget or disconnected from who we are. Yoga has the tools to help us to re-member (especially Asana :)), to re-connect and Be True!
