Yoga Binder Essay: Sanskrit terms
Dharma: means many things often used in the sense of law, discipline, obligation.
This is my favorite term because it’s my daughter’s name! I named her it because of the beauty and diversity of the word. For me, it’s the way.
Ahimsa: Nonharming, The single most important moral discipline, one of the yamas. This is one of my favorite terms because I like the meaning behind it. This world would be a better place if everyone believed in this important moral discipline.
Prasada: Grace or clarity; divine grace, mental clarity.
This is also one of my favorite terms because this is what I strive for.
Duhkah: Suffering, a fundamental fact of life.
I like this term because it is something I am trying to accept in my own life. Try to avoid the Duhkah, but accept that it will be a part of life and it won’t be so hard.
