| 28 Moses was there with the
LORD forty days and forty nights without eating bread or drinking water.
And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant-- the Ten Commandments.
29 When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the Testimony in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the LORD.
30 When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, his face was radiant, and they were afraid to come near him.
Eternal Rules of Happiness
1. You shall have no other gods before me.
| There are parallel Ten
Commandments or Eternal Rules of Happiness in the instruction for yoga
and meditation. They are called Yama and Niyama, the things you should

3. Freedom from greed
4. Control of sensuality
5. Not desiring what another has
8. Austerity or solemnity
All religions have rules of conduct that make life better and help us to avoid unhappiness. In Self-Realization Fellowship we use these as an essential first step for yoga (union with God.) After the observance of yama-niyama we can go on to practice further steps to directly experience God’s presence. We can begin to practice proper posture in meditation and other practices to get very still, calm, and concentrated..
