What is informing my practice.

Although I do have a daily mantra practice if you do not please substitute the word asana for mantra.

“Mantra has become well known in the West.  We normally associate it, rather superficially, with some meaningless sound we repeat mechanically until we are put in some kind of trance.  Actually, mantra is quite different than this.

All learning involves the energization of the mind.  It is by  the power of attention, the concentration of the mind, that we come to know anything.  As long as we are distracted of our minds are wandering , we cannot come to see anything.  Hence, the real object of learning is not to learn anything in particular but to gain the mastery of the mind through the power of attention.  Then we can find truth in all things.” Vyaas Houston
