Happy International Yoga Day (June 21)! In gratitude to mother India for giving us the great science of Yoga.
Planet Earth has been blessed by the profound teachings of Yoga, which go so far beyond stretching and strengthening our physical bodies: The ethical practices, the training in concentration and meditation, the emphasis on selfless service (karma yoga), devotion to the Divine (bhakti yoga)… and the list goes on!
In gratitude to the Yoga Masters who came in particular to the United States to teach. I’m thinking of Swami Vivekananda, Paramahansa Yogananda, Swami Rama, and Swami Satchidananda in particular. The ancient teachings given to the modern world are priceless.
In gratitude to my guru, Sri Swami Satchidananda, for showing us how to use the practices of Yoga to bring us an easeful body and a peaceful mind – to be in service to making this world a better place! For Integral Yoga, the LOTUS, etc.
OM shanti, shanti, shanti… Peace to all!
