All yoga teachers, I mean the true ones, know that YOGA cannot be used to earn money.This is because of PARIGRAHA. Parigraha is a must. Without it, no yoga is possible! It becomes something else, like any simple sportive act say like boxing, or running, nothing more!
And therefore I always keep saying that a real teacher never wants his/her students pay money to him/her. If the teacher wants money, it is clear that this person is not a real teacher. He/she is a sales man /woman. But when you get a book, things are quite different WHY? for the following reasons:
1 - For a yoga book students are not obliged to pay money. Because
there are several places a yoga book could be obtained; libraries,
friends, clubs , exchange etc.
2 - Any teacher belongs to a group, and that group`s teaching is only
one way of looking at any yoga style…Even the names might be diffrent
for the same ASANA. NYASA and although it might be the samething.
3 - Throught a book any serious student by comparison can see the real
meaning of that particular ASANA ,or whatever it is.
Therefore Mr. Lawson and Mr. Stu should try to see any event in this world from different points, only then a student can get into the real act of yoga. Owise, he/she is under the spell of his/her teacher who, in many cases , is a real cheater, particularly if he/she
is expecting MONEY from his/her students…examples, SHAJA YOGA and TM. Their followers are under their GURUS SPELL, so that they can even not see this simple facts regarding yoga. Because these gurus`students are under the TRANCE, I can easily understand that they are not aware of this. It is very normal. Same thing is true for OSHO, he was another cheater for sure…But his students
are under his spell. Another cheater is SATYA SAI BABA , he has been shown by HINDIAN GOVERNMENT for CHILD MOLEST. These are the cheaters, and always their students were put in a continues TRANCE.
If we yoga students can not see these simple truths , how then we will learn such a vast knowledge named YOGA! YOGA is such and act that gives us a very CLEAR VISION REGARDING any person,including all the cheaters. By having different books one can learn the different aspects of the same ASANA or KRIYA or even PRATYAHARA or PRANAYAMA. So this is the only way to look at the same
act of yoga from different points. Teacher can give you the secrets of a yogic VISION as he/she is only one way person, if gets money for teaching he is a cheater too. It is up to the student, to prefer a cheater or a real yoga guide.
My words include only money receiving teacher for teaching yoga, if teacher does not want money, then he might be a real teacher.
