#8 Patanjali's Kleśas Song

This episode features a song to help you remember the Kleśas, as described by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras.

I have struggled a bit with remembering the kleśas, the five poisons or mental afflictions that keep us from yoga. I was inspired by the talk with Austin Sanderson about Patanjali and the Kleshas, so I grabbed some soundbites and make a beautiful little song to help you remember the kleshas.

Patanjali's Kleśas Song was written and recorded in a Providence, Rhode Island hotel where I was staying to help my friend recover from a surgery. As the fates would have it, I ended up getting a surgery three days after I returned from helping her. The process gave me some time and to meditate on the kleśas, experience them, and report back.

Song begins: 05:40
