As I mentioned in previous JumpStarts, unlike the 10 commandments, which are a list of “Thou Shalt Nots,” the Hindu Yamas tell one what NOT to do and the Niyamas tells us what we SHOULD do.

The first Niyama is SAUCHA – be pure.

Purity in body, mind, heart, ethics, and intention.

The rewards of purity are sound sleep, loving friends, a clear conscience, less anxiety, and the greatest benefit of all — increased happiness.

Let’s discuss SAUCHA — “thou shalt be pure” — today and discover the benefits of living a pure life.

Remember to post your questions and comments — I respond to them all personally.

BTW, you’ve probably noticed that I don’t accept outside advertising — that’s because cool people like you share these messages with coworkers, friends, and family who will often hire me for speeches, and/or purchase my books, Complaint FreeⓇ bracelets, and online programs.

So if this post inspired you, touched your heart, or expanded your mind, please do everyone a favor and share it with at least one other person whom you think would like it as well.
