Traduction "Celui qui ne s'approprie pas ce qui ne lui appartient pas reçoit toutes les richesses" Yoga Sutra. II. 37When non-stealing (asteya) is established, all jewels, or treasures present themselves, or are available to the Yogi.
“asteya pratisthayam sarva ratna upasthanam.” 2.37

• asteya = non-stealing, abstention from theft
• pratisthayam = having firmly established, being well grounded in
• sarva = of all
• ratna = jewels, treasures
• upasthanam = appear, come, approach to him or her, are available, present themselves

Asteya or non-stealing is the third yama (fundamental moral observance) described in The Yoga Sutras by Patanjali. “When abstention from stealing is firmly established, precious jewels come to the Yogi” (Sutra II.37). And as BKS Iyengar in “Light on Yoga” eloquently said: “The desire to posses and enjoy what another has, drives a person to do evil deeds. (It) includes not only taking what belongs to another without permission, but also using something for a different purpose to that intended, or beyond the time permitted by its owner.” We should not take or desire what doesn’t belong to us including others possessions, ideas, spouses/partners, money, time, trust, dignity, attention etc. Without the desire to steal, we will attract what should be most precious to us, the virtue. The freedom from craving what is not ours enables us to deflect great temptations. It seems that we always want and desire something we don’t have. We often focus on what other people have, we are jealous of others and compare ourselves to others. Is the grass always greener on the other side of the fence? We should remind ourselves to bring our awareness back to the richness of what we already have. As we feel the appreciation and peacefulness, the perspective shifts and new opportunities will come. So, next time you feel particularly challenged in your yoga class (or at work), remind yourself about good things in your practice (work), such as coming to the class (work), trying your best, staying with your breath (work tasks) even in difficult poses (meetings), respecting your body and mind, etc. So, now think and consider: What does asteya mean to you and how can you apply it to your daily life?

Asteya reminds us to claim and even appreciate the ways we are different and to meet one another with openness and respect.

Comparison to other students—imagine everyone in the room as a different piece of fruit. You wouldn’t wonder why a banana doesn’t look more like a grape. Because every body is put together differently and has a unique history, we look different in the poses. When we get caught up in what someone else looks like, we miss out on what’s happening for us.

Trying to do the pose “right”—use tips on alignment to find the place where your body feels enlivened and free, rather than trying to fit into a universal mold. Our bodies are built uniquely, all the way down to our bones. There’s no one right way to do a pose that works for everyone. There’s a saying in yoga, "Make the pose fit your body, not your body fit the pose." How is doing the pose “right” masking your own vulnerability?
