【梵文小教室】 Lobha

經過多年的教學觀察,Ranjan老師深切感覺「預防傷害」的重要,這不單指體位法的練習,也是瑜珈哲學的練習。以下是Ranjan老師的真誠分享>>

我常看到瑜珈練習者有許多的傷,因為他們認為自己可以在任何時間、任何地點練習,把瑜珈當作運動。當我還是瑜珈初學者時,也是以同樣的態度練習。之後,我明白瑜珈不只是運動,它是結合了心智、身體與呼吸的練習。

專注,在練習體位法時是必要的,我們必須知道自己身體的限制。這需要數年的時間來了解,而不是幾天或是一個月就可以透徹的。在練習體位法時,請不要勉強自己超過極限。

Lobha梵文的意思是貪婪,存在於心智裡。在瑜珈課上,學生常想要盡快進入動作,這將不只是造成身體的傷害,也讓心智不穩定。於是,有些學生可能因此開始討厭瑜珈,他們不會怪罪自己,但他們會怪罪課程或是老師。所以,請試著傾聽你自己身體的聲音。

我舉個Lobha的例子。當學生有柔軟度,可以做很好的後彎時,他們可能會在自己準備好之前,想要做得更多,這就是貪婪。他們不想等待身體同意。這是造成傷害最大的原因。

Nowadays, yoga practitioners have lots of injuries because they think they can practice anytime anywhere and treat it like exercise. When I was a beginner I also practiced the same way. Then I realized its not just exercise it’s the combination of mind, body and breath.

Concentration is a must to practice asana, we must know our body’s limitations and that may take years to understand. not coming in a day or months but Don’t push yourself beyond your limits during any stage of asana practice.

Lobha in Sanskrit or greediness always exists in the mind. During yoga classes students want to reach the final position as soon as possible and this causes not only physical problems but also mental instability. Then some people may start to hate yoga. They never blame themselves, but they try to blame the class or the teacher. So try to listen to your own body.

Here is an example of Lobha.
If a student is flexible and can do back bending well then they may want to reach further before they are ready because of greediness. They don’t’ want to wait for their body’s permission. And this is a major cause for injury. I will talk more about Lobha as we understand it in yoga philosophy during the class. After this class I hope I can guide people to continue their practice in a safe way.
