3) Asteya – rejection of the desire to possess what does not belong to us;
4) Brahmacharya – restraint, refusal to indulge your passions, desires and weaknesses;
5) Aparigraha – refusal to accept gifts and good deeds. Complete self-sufficiency, readiness to always rely only on one’s own strength.
Without self-regulation, one cannot achieve higher states of consciousness. Five rules: Continue reading
