Breath as a resting place & as a support for the mind to rest.

Alambana means to support or as a resting place to rest the mind.

Bhagavad Gita 6.20:

That place where thought comes to rest - breathing,

held steady by the practice of yoga - breathing,

And where

Seeing the self

by the very self,

one becomes satisfied

within the self.

Bhagavad Gita 6.21:

That boundless happiness

beyond the senses

which is grasped

through discernment

That place where one knows this,

indeed is established in it

and does not swerve from the truth.

Bhagavad Gita 6.22:

And which having obtained,

one is mindful that

no other gain

is greater than this;

situated in which

one is not shaken,

even by heavy suffering-

Bhagavad Gita 6.23:

Let this be understood as this disjunction

from one's conjunction

with suffering --

this is called yoga.

One is to be absorbed

in yoga with determination,

such yoga being

without discouraging thought.

Bhagavad Gita 6.25:

Little by little,

becme queited

by this inner awakening,

firmly held.

Established your mind in this self,

and think of nothing else.

~inspired by the Bhagavad Gita, Rolf Sovik from the Yoga International.
