Buddhism is a profound study in time and time management because the better you manage your mind, the less hold time has on you. Every moment can be lived fully, free, and unconditioned, and every moment holds infinite possibilities and opportunities for a fresh start. Every moment of heightened consciousness is precious beyond price, for awareness is the primary currency of the human condition. Buddhism for me, is a study in how to live fully and authentically, not only in our earthly time zone, but in what I call Buddha Standard Time- the dimension of timeless time, wholly now. – Lama Surya Das
Listen to a Drishti Point Yoga Podcast with Lama Surya Das, known affectionately by the Dalai Lama as ‘the Western Lama’ is one of the foremost Western Buddhist teachers and scholars. In this interview, Lamaji speaks about developing concentration, spending time outdoors and in Nature, the 5 Paramitas (Perfections) and how to bring the sacred into everything we do.Jivanmukti Yoga

As a path to enlightenment through compassion for all beings, Jivamukti Yoga is grounded in the original meaning of the Sanskrit word asana as “seat, connection” – relationship to the Earth. Earth implies all of life. Citing Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, which states that asana should be sthira and sukham, Jivamukti Yoga maintains that one’s relationship to others (asana) should be mutually beneficial and come from a consistent (sthira) place of joy and happiness (sukham). This is a radical idea that, when put into practice, can dismantle our present culture, which is based on the notion that the Earth and all other animals exist for our benefit and to be exploited for our own selfish purposes. So the practice of asana becomes more than mere physical exercise to keep one’s body fit or to increase strength or flexibility; it becomes a way to improve one’s relationship to all others and thus lead to enlightenment – the dissolution of the sense of separateness, the realization of the oneness of being, the discovery of lasting happiness.
