Satya – Truthfulness – Day 2

Good Morning Yogis! Today is Satya or Truthfulness Day.

I recently heard a Sufi saying that made me reflect on Satya:

Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to try to apply the “Three Gate Rule” for your speech for today’s Satya/truthfulness day. For those of you who cannot see the graphic above – “Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates. At the first gate, ask yourself ‘is it true?’ At the second gate, ask ‘is it necessary?’ At the third gate, ask ‘is it kind?’ “

Please comment and share how your Satya practice went today! Always remember, be kind!

PS For another 3 Gate Rule for Actions related to Brahmacharya/moderation delivered in a quirky, amusing, and wholesome TV show, check out Joe Pera’s approach to grocery shopping. Yes, yes, yes.

PPS I got a report that one of our Yogis reads our daily practice first thing in the morning before getting out bed, rather than scrolling through social media.. which made me super happy <3!!! So, we are moving our AM posts up another couple of hours for my East Coast Yogis who may want access earlier in the morning. Don’t worry, app notifications and email updates will still be delivered at 10am ET / 7am PT, but our morning posts will be available on and in the app at 6am ET.
