Yoga Lesson: Humility

Humility (Vinaya) is a deceptively cloaked virtue that when present gives one true greatness while eliminating the perils of pride and arrogance. At its core, humility is the fundamental respect towards all living beings, and the acknowledgment that in our essence we are all divine beings with the inherent capacity for greatness. Practicing humility dispels our egoic mind, purifies our soul and produces true knowledge and wisdom.

Quotes
When humility enters our souls, we are at last able to perceive that we do not live alone in the world but with millions of brothers and sisters, and that hidden in the heart of each is the same animating spirit.  – U. S. Anderson

Humility arises out of acceptance, out of understanding our true position in the world, as a part of humanity, and a part of life. – Joseph Naft

Humility is the root of loftiness; it is the source of all prosperity; it spreads our glory far and wide and is like the moon that brings the tide in the ocean of religion (Dharma). – Shri Atmanandji

  1. I could only open two of the poses for humility, crane and child’s pose. Why can’t I open the others?
