Traditionally, people have practiced yoga by living in the ashrams, in the vicinity to their teachers. Throughout the years ashrams have played an important role but today there are many that provide you this experience.
In ashrams, you have to live according to the rules and regulations. The accommodation facilities are quite basic. You have to learn to live simply.
With Gangasadan, to live in the present moment is an important part of the retreat. So, make to have a life changing experience on a yoga retreat.
The mind usually does not like meditation because it keeps the body still. With yoga the mind becomes naturally still. This is why so much stress has been laid in yoga- especially on hatha yoga and asanas.
If you just learn the art to keep your body absolutely still, then your mind will also become still. Just try for once this unique retreat and observe yourself and see how the unnecessary movements of your body makes you stand, sit or speak.
Keeping the body still will let the mind to start collapsing slowly and the mind knows that it will automatically become enslaved on its own.
The main purpose of meditation in the current scenario is that it’s the boss and you are the slave. When you start to meditate and become more meditative with time, you will become the boss and your mind will become the slave and that is how you would feel with meditation on a daily basis.
If you don’t know how to play with your mind and keep it as a slave, meditation will surely put an end through all kinds of endless suffering, the tensions in your daily life, the rest you have been deprived of so far. If you allow the mind to rule you, it will act as a terrible master for you. But if kept the mind as slave, the mind is wonderful and it will be a miraculous slave for you.
