Yoga Tip of the Day

Pravrutti Dharma and Nivrutti Dharma
- Shri.N.V.Raghuram


Human personality has characteristics of introversion and extraversion. Extraverts (extroverts) relate their performance based on the visibility outside, and introverts on the other hand are contemplative by nature. As an example, introverts would be well suited for a field of science whereas extraverts are suited for business, administration, etc.

Vrutta means a circle that has a periphery, which is always in motion. Pravrutti dharma is this aspect of universe. Nivrutti is the center of vrutta - the circle. As with any circle, the center is a constant in fact unmanifest!. Nivrutti dharma is this aspect of universe. Pravrutti is evolution and manifestation whereas Nivrutti is involution and dissolution; The world cycles in Pravrutti and Nivrutti dharma.

In the human context, an extrovert follows Pravrutti dharma and a contemplative introvert follows Nivrutti dharma. We, the products of nature have the innate quality to choose Pravrutti or Nivrutti as our path. One path is not better than the other. Rather than trying to change our underlying nature, wisdom is to adopt methods to suit our swadharma. They can be on spiritual path as long as they are complimentary to each other.

As Vivekananda says, while the aim of yoga is to be one with higher truth, the method of attaining may vary with the different temperaments of men.
