  • He asked a yogi, if he knew a yoga path for him and his wife. The yogi advised Camaripa to make his profession to his spiritual path. Camaripa asked how he should do it. The yogi replied that first he had to redefine the goals in his life. Camaripa could not live as a free Yogi. But he could use every space in his job to develop his inner happiness. Outwardly, he should live on as before. But inside, he and his wife should live as yogis.
  • A normal person works for his ego. He works for his pleasure, his career, for worldly wealth and recognition. In this way he strengthened his ego and allowed in more and more tension because of life's general stress. He consumed his inner energy in the course of living.
  • A spiritual man works for his inner happiness and the love in the world. He takes good care of his body and his health. But his mind is mainly concerned with the happiness of his fellow men. Through this method, the ego dissolves and the yogi grows into the light.
  • Camaripa and his wife practiced yoga from this time on, from morning to night. They began the day with a prayer to the enlightened masters. They found a positive vision for the day. They finished the day with a meditation. During the day they took so many little breaks, that their spirit stayed positive. They added so many spiritual practices into their daily life that their tensions grew less and less.
  • They lived as karma-yogis for the goal of a happy world. They worked for the peace and the love in the world. After twelve years, their enlightenment energy woke up and filled them with light. They lived in God and the light worked through them. Now they had so much power that their work was done almost by itself. Their body worked, their mind was thinking and the soul rested in bliss. They lived in the unity of meditation and action. Work is happy, if it happens out of God (unity), peace and love.
  • An inspiring tale: Chamaripa was a shoemaker. He and his wife had to work from morning to night to earn enough money to live. After many years of daily effort Camaripa got tired of his life as a worker. He longed for a quiet, relaxed and happy life.


  • Don't work too much. Don't rest too much. Find your personal balance to stay healthy and happy. Do some spiritual exercises every day. Do Computer Yoga every day and the day will be yours.
