A yogi never falls ill, he never faces abhaav of anything, he does not have any kasht. The biggest pain is not in losing something but in getting something which is dear to you.
As per Ayurveda, the body is made of three doshas. “Dosha” translates as a defect or an impurity. That is, the body itself is impure. There is no negative or positive because everything around you, everything physical, is bound by time. It is bound to end, and the time for it to end is decided the moment you get it, irrespective of whether that thing is good or bad.
The biggest pain is not in losing something but in getting something which is dear to you. The dearer a thing is to you, the more expensive it proves to be, as that much more pain it will cause to you. The day you get something, that day itself the pain that comes with it is also decided. Similarly, the day you take the body, the doshas that come along with it are also determined because the meaning of body is that which is dooshit.
Let me share an excerpt from life of Ramkrishna Paramhansa. He was very fond of eating and would ask his wife to prepare different kinds of delicacies for him. One day his wife asked him — “You give lengthy discourses on eating less, eating satvic food, observing fasts and that how these are all bandhans. Then why do you indulge in such foods?” His reply came, “There is so much tej in my soul that it is unable to stay in this dooshit body. By eating all these foods, I have to forcibly live in this body because my time to go has not come as yet; there are still some unfinished tasks that I need to complete.”
He also told her that the day he stops eating, three days from then, he would leave his body.
And that is exactly how it happened. The day he stopped eating, people knew he was about to go and third day from then, he left the body.
When there is dosh in the body, only then can the soul stay in the body. If the body becomes pure then the soul will not stay in the body. When there is no dosh, then what will you eat and drink and if you do not eat or drink, then what is the use of living?
The marg of yog has everything in it. Eat anything, drink anything, do anything, but keep walking the path of Guru. If you walk with your Guru, then that thing will stop affecting you. But if you are not walking then that thing will get hold of you, choke you and you will leave the path of yog.
A yogi never falls ill, he never faces abhaav of anything, he does not have any kasht.
But if due to any reason he wanders from the path of yog, then there is lot of kasht. So there is nothing right or wrong, positive or negative, walk on the path of yog and evolve.
Fulfillment of desires is not evolution. The signs of evolution are clear. You stop falling sick, time passes very quickly, levels of detachment increase, that is, you stop getting hurt.
Yog is a marg of pure anand. It is a path of experience, path to direct interaction with the devs and devis. It is sadhna of within, it involves changes within, it is the marg of moksha.
