Reacting to Emotions

Even in the greatest yogi,
sorrow and joy still arise just as before.

The difference between an ordinary person and the yogi is,
how they view their emotions and react to them.

An ordinary person will instinctively accept or reject them,
and so arouse the attachment or aversion that will result in the accumulation of negative karma.

A yogi, however, perceives everything that rises in its natural, pristine state,
without allowing grasping to enter his perception.
