“Step into the fire of self-discovery. This fire will not burn you, it will only burn what you are not.” — Mooji
Before the word "Yoga" was used to mean spiritual discipline, the term tapas was used to express that same idea. Over time tapas has gained the connotation of asceticism or austerity. But its literal meaning is heat or glow. Through tapas, the solar spirit shines brightly through its physical body, which is our sun. Also through tapas, spiritual practitioners radiate the energy of wisdom and kindness.
Tapas [one of the Niyamas] comes from the Sanskrit word “Tap” or to burn, and is defined as discipline, or purity. Another study or interpretation is the “burning off” of any obstructions (from what's not needed in the body or hindering thoughts and patterns in our minds) which can stand in the way of our true self, our Yoga or union with the divine.
Tapas is any practice that pushes the mind against its own limits; the key ingredient of tapas is endurance.The practice of Tapas must be sustainable; with a dedicated practice and a commitment to showing up. A decision to practice with complete dedication may be a great way to ignite your inner fire, but unless one has the commitment to oneself, about what we put into our bodies each day, and how we feed our minds, that fire will burn out as quickly as it started. True lasting change happens slowly – a fire must be tended mindfully so that it can continue to burn without becoming too intense.
