Is it a sin to sniff a tree? Maybe to hug it and say hello? Or to think sin is overrated?

  1. Nope.
    Hugs and Hellos are free.
    When I hug a tree, I give it a big bear hug, just to let the tree know it is loved :).

  2. If you just want to see what it smells like I don’t think it’s a sin. I’ve read that tree hugging is a pagan practice, the tree being a phallic symbol. I’m still not sure if it’s true but that could be seen as a sin depending on your faith.

Yoga nidra allows an individual to leave the waking state, move past the dreaming state and into deep sleep while remaining awake or conscious during the whole process. In yoga nidra, there are no dreams to explore. Instead, it is a process of emptying. It purifies the deeper aspect of the human mind by exploring deep impressions or samskaras. This is essential as samskaras drive our karma.
