How to Train the Mind
The asanas or postures help to train the mind. Without purity of body, it is very difficult to purify the mind. Learn to live a natural life. First be physically at ease, and mental peace will follow. Live in a way that makes your body light, healthy, and more supple. Then when you sit for meditation, you won’t feel aches and pains and spend your time meditating on them.
