The Importance of Patanjali Yoga Sutra for Mental Wellbeing

The chitta, or human consciousness, naturally gets drawn towards the external world. Human consciousness does not naturally possess the ability to gaze inward; it acquires this ability through yogic practices. Maharishi Patanjali's Yoga Sutras offers profound insights and framework for these kind of yoga practices that helps one in achieving mental well-being and inner peace. Sign up to join Dr. Sangeeta Sharma, where she offers detailed discussion on selected sutras, techniques, and practices derived from the Yoga Sutra that participants can integrate into their daily lives.

The Importance of Patanjali's Yoga Sutra for Mental Wellbeing

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mental health is a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to contribute to his or her community. According to Project Hope, the world is facing a mental health crisis that demands action; in fact, reports also state that around half of the global population will experience mental illness. What can we do about this? 

We have a beautiful antidote to follow: Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. These sutras outline the principles and practices of yoga, which go beyond physical postures to encompass a comprehensive approach to mental and spiritual health. 

According to Samkhya philosophy, the chitta is the combination of manas (mind), buddhi (intellect), and ahamkara (ego). In yoga, chitta is defined as the mind-stuff, while prasadanam is the act of making something pure and beautiful. Chitta Prasadanam, prescribed by Maharishi Patanjali, is a valuable wisdom that can help us maintain a peaceful and beautiful state of mind, regardless of the actions of others. Learning to stay unaffected is an extremely important skill for mental peace because the mind is like a magnet and tends to attract what you want most: revenge or peace.
