Samah – equality 

«One who makes no distinction between friend and foe, honour and dishonour, knowing Brahman to be full in itself (all pervading), becomes supremely happy» (Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra, 125, Dhāranā on equality).

One of the most famous definitions of yoga comes from the Bhagavad-Gita and teaches that yoga is samatva, equanimity. To remain unperturbed by the experiences, pleasant or unpleasant as they may be, is one of the most difficult virtues to learn. On the other hand, it is acquired only after having understood that every event in life can have a useful implication for your own growth. 

The first fifteen days of the month are quite busy and hectic. This makes you nervous and somewhat rebellious, especially towards those who get in your way and maybe want to force you to do things in a different way than you want. Consider the current situation and do not make the mistake of comparing it with others that happened in the past. The context might be completely different now and, if you put aside your pride and fears, you can also realize that the ideas they propose to you are in fact valid.

Trikona-āsana, triangle pose

I have always thought of it as one of the most balanced positions from all points of view. On the other hand, the triangle is a solid base, but it is also the symbol of transcendence, in which the eye of God is inscribed. Nothing better for wisdom.

Awareness exercise

According to Bhagavad-gītā, the solution to achieving equanimity is karma-yoga. Then observe: How attached are you to the results of what you are doing? How high are your expectations? It is right to have ambitions, but greedily clinging to them can lead to frustration. Are you able to work with more joy and less attachment?
