Sanskrit Word of the Day: Prakritija

Here is another delightful word from Sanskrit – prakritija – it means “springing from nature, inborn, innate.” Pronounced pra-kriti--ja.

The relevance of prakritija is this: the impulse to meditate springs up from your innate self, and calls you to rest there. As soon as possible in your learning curve, you want to get so that your yoga meditation practice feels utterly effortless and natural.
