Interiorization is a perfect description of what yoga offers and what Patanjali lays out in the 8 Limbs of The Yoga Sutras. Through the process of interiorization and by repeating mantra, you become established, more and more in Samadhi, the inner absorption into the ocean of consciousness that is your own Self.
You only say, “I want to be happy” when you’re not. Without happiness you feel incomplete. That’s because happiness is your inherent, baseline nature. Your true form is not merely happiness but the incomparable, ever-expanding bliss of Consciousness.
Patanjali developed the eight limbs of Yoga to help you attain happiness by improving your life, as well as to guide you in the knowing of your own inherent Divinity. Gurudevi discusses the importance of self effort in this quest, while at the same time revealing how the gift of the Guru’s grace will flow when self effort is applied.
