"The Yoga Sutras: Mastering The Game of Life
with Reverend Jaganath Carrera

In every game, there is a goal, a purpose behind the game’s actions. It is usually the first thing about a game that we learn. This is because it is only when we understand the goal and keep it in mind that the rules of the game start to make sense. Additionally, the rules – the list of actions that are allowed or disallowed – help make the game an interesting challenge.

However, if we do not know what the goal is, the rules lose their meaning. They are reduced to a collection of random acts that lead nowhere and only add to a feeling of confusion and anxiety. This is how we often feel about life. We are like ships without rudders trying to navigate seas with unpredictable currents and storms. That is why our first order of business in attempting to master the game of life, as with any game, is to find out what the ultimate goal is.

This is precisely the subject of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Join Rev. Jaganath Carrera in exploring this teaching as it outlines the Ultimate Goal and the rules for Mastering the Game of Life.
