What is Stithpragya?

In the Bhagavad Gita, Stithpragya is called a sage/ Muni. Simply put, Sthitipragya means equality between happiness and unhappiness. It is to be comfortable and calm even in the face of impulses like attachment, jealousy, lust, anger and greed.

Isthiti Pragya means to be situated in one’s own intelligence which is beyond external perceptions and above ideological bonds. To know one’s own intelligence, it is necessary to know and feel the soul. In order to feel the soul, one has to be spiritual. After a while of making spiritual progress, the soul becomes realized (Pragya).

The seeker whose mind is not restless with sorrows, whose longing for pleasure vanishes, who becomes free from fear and anger, who does not have affection for anything, who is not happy about receiving good things and is not sad after receiving something bad is called Stithpragya or a Muni.

To become a Stithpragya, one needs to withdraw the senses from worldly objects which will eventually cause the intellect to become stable. By this, the restlessness of the mind is removed and the person will possess a steady intellect.

Stithpragya does not mean that one should withdraw oneself from worldly objects and worldly responsibilities. We still have to do our work but we should not be happy with good results or unhappy with inauspicious results. In every situation, we have to live with the same spirit.

Learn about:

  • The true meaning of yoga and spirituality
  • Yoga principles to improve your life
  • The inner workings of the mind
  • Control and regulation of the mind
  • Achieve excellence and bliss.
  • The true meaning of enlightenment and how to achieve it.
  • How to inculcate the yoga sutras in your life.

Decoding the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali does just that. It decodes and simplifies the wealth of information contained in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Maharshi Patanjali realized that the mind is the repository of all the happiness and miseries experienced in one’s life. He delved into the mysteries of the mind, detailed its inner workings and devised methods to eliminate life’s miseries.

The modern-day, despite technological and social advancements, is rife with problems. Maybe more so than in the past. Depression, anxiety, stress and a host of other illnesses are on the rise in today’s world owing to hectic lifestyles. Many mainstream solutions to these problems including retail therapy, vacations, materialism, and even medication only address the symptoms. We believe that this is a temporary solution at best. Until the root cause is dealt with, no real change can occur.

In this book, we will walk you through Patanjali’s teachings and methods to tame the mind. We have simplified the language, removed myths, superstitions and curated critical information from the original texts. What you get is rational, logical, practical and easy to understand information that can be incorporated into your lifestyle. By addressing the root cause of all suffering, you will start to see profound changes in your daily life.

Decoding the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali aims to help the 21st-century man through ancient yogic wisdom.
