Tapas is the practice of self-discipline, leading to a life of principle.
This is important especially for yoga practitioners—maintaining a disciplined diet, steady practice and schedule, avoiding bad crowds and negative influences. By practicing tapas, impurities are destroyed, and the body and sense organs will gain spiritual power. Our mindset should be focused in one place— in our spiritual practice. The mind likes to wander. Negative influences distract the mind. Through this practice, we can discipline and focus the mind to achieve our spiritual goals.
By practicing self-discipline, impurities are destroyed, then the body and sense organs will gain spiritual strength.
