Sankalpa

Sankalpa is the yoga practice of focusing your mind and energy to fulfil your heartfelt desires (or dharma) It is similar to the new year's resolution except that it starts from the assumption that you already are who you need to be to fulfil this.

'Kalpa' means vow - "the rule above all other rules" "San" is the connection to the highest truth So sankalpa can be said to be the commitment you make to support your high

Word
