Why is Yoga called a discipline? Where is the need for discipline? When does the need for discipline arise?
Discipline arises when something is not very charming to begin with. When you know that - something would give a fruit that is very enjoyable, but the seed to begin with is not that enjoyable. When you are abiding in yourself, when you are in joy, when you are in peace or happiness, true happiness, then you are already in yourself. There is no discipline there. But when that is not so, and the mind is wagging its tail all the time, then discipline is essential, so that it could calm down, it could come back to itself. The fruit of which is eventually blissful, joyful.
