Excerpt: Yamas - There are ten yamas and ten niyamas. Yamas tell us what not to do. The niyamas tell us what we should do. We should all memorize the yamas and niyamas. // 1. ahimsa: Non - injury. I will not harm others by thought, word // or deed. // 2. satya: Truthfulness. I will not lie or betray promises. // 3. asteya: Nonstealing. I will not steal, nor covet, nor enter into // debt. // 4. brahmacharya: Divine conduct. I will control lust by remaining // celibate when single, and being faithful in marriage. // 5. kshama: Patience. I will be tolerant with people and patient // with circumstances. // 6. dhriti: Steadfastness. I will cultivate perseverance and overcome // fear, indecision and changeableness. // 7. daya: Compassion. I will not be callous, cruel or have insensitive // feelings toward any being. // 8. arjava: Honesty, straightforwardness. I will not deceive or do // wrong. // 9. mitahara: Moderate appetite. I will not eat too much nor consume // meat, fish, fowl or eggs. // 10. saucha: Purity. I will not be impure in body, mind and // speech.
