Let me show another face of India and the life in the ashram. The way you look at India depends on the perspective. If you want to see colors you will find it, if you want to listen to music you will find it and if you want to find yourself you will definitely find thyself.

Most of you would have thought about Sanskrit but that’s not what I am talking about. I know that all the Yoga scriptures were originally written in Sanskrit then got translated into several languages but that doesn’t mean it’s only for Sanskrit speaking language. In fact there are a very few people alive who can converse in Sanskrit.
As per my observation and research the only language which can help in truly understanding Sanskrit is BODY LANGUAGE. It’s your body which tells you which asanas you can do, which asanas you should do, which asanas may cause injuries or which asana may heal you.
Now isn’t just about asanas right, so what about meditation? well here you not actually required to do anything. Just concentrate 🙂
Well these were just my thoughts hope you will like it. 🙂
ONE WORLD ONE LANGUAGE!
A day with the kids.
Lord Krishna in Bhagwat Gita said “A person who has given up all desires for sense gratification, who lives free from desires, who has given up all sense of proprietor ship and is devoid of false ego- he alone can attain total peace.” Karma Yoga is selfless work the work which you do without wishing for any fruitful desires. Here are the one of the best examples of Karma Yoga in the Ashram completed in the month of October 2013.

There are very many moments in life which are worth relishing upon. One of them is graduation day. All though students graduate every month here but every graduation ceremony is unique in their own sense. Swamiji graced the occasion himself. We were blessed by his kind blessings and prasad,
This graduation was special in many respects..
1. Respected Swamiji was present to grace the occasion
2. We had two students ( Katee and Satya) who were here for almost 3 months

I have a met a lot of travelers from every of the world. For some traveling is fun, some travel to see different cultures, some travel to see various forms of nature and some travel to discover themselves. Well Yoga isn’t different at all… you don’t believe me?? let me explain!
1. While traveling you explore the world. In yoga you explore yourself which is technically a whole freaking world in itself.
2. While traveling you interact with various people. In yoga you interact with different versions of your own self, negative and positive. Watch yourself while meditation you will understand what I am trying to say.
3. While traveling you experience the miracles of nature. In Yoga you witness your own body which is in fact nothing short of a miracle 🙂
4. Traveling opens your mind ( sort of) and Yoga does the same, if you haven’t tried meditation then do try! It will blow your mind…literally!
You traveling plans, vacation may end at some point but the journey of yoga is for life.. That’s why I call Yoga a journey of a lifetime towards thyself.
