Spiritual Art of Mental Asanas #187
As a companion for wisdom chart #139, but also as a stand-on-its-own offering, the teaching of Mental Asanas, though not new to Indian darshanas and their way of thinking, is nevertheless relatively new to this day and age, and to the West in general. And what an ingenious and effective method it is, especially for the sincere and serious practitioner who is willing to combine deep study with concentrated meditation. The divisions of this teaching give the seeker three levels of postures for the mind to take up, practice, and accomplish — one for mental health, one for spirituality, and one for transcendence. Selecting one or more from each category, the aspirant can strive for success in overcoming obstacles that otherwise may have been impeding progress for lifetimes. Practicing these under the guidance of a guru proves extra effective.
