This year, 2016, is very special to us because it marks our 10th year in the pure magnificence of our Beloved Teacher, Swami Ashutosh Muni. It has been ten wondrous, amazing, and awe-inspiring years in an indepth study of the Bhagavad Gita and in learning to make strides towards the brilliance that lies within under such loving and knowledgeable guidance and most of all LOVE. We are so grateful.
Next Kirtan Sunday, July 17th.......with Hal, Adam, Jeff and Tom 3:30-5:30pm at 2950 Bay Shore Drive.
Summer Yoga Camp sessions for children 5-14:
This is our wonderful crew from June camp! We introduced the children to meditation and described this discipline as a method to access the FORCE. We used the Star Wars vernacular because they know and understand it well.........however we also talked about other words that mean the same.........chi.........spiritual energy..........prana...... the holy spirit. Meditation is proven to help children focus and attend to a task without distraction......like schoolwork or any endeavor they choose to pursue in their lives.
We also introduced the children to chanting........which is yet another form of meditation. We had lots of fun!
We are also taking registrations for Adult yoga camp for adults and veterans with disabilities for summer. See page on Fun Fridays for dates.
We are excited to begin the year with many opportunities to nurture and grow our spiritual family of seekers. The soul is forever..... as we have been chanting in Bhagavad Gita.........it is "uncuttable, unburnable, unwettable, undryable"........ yet it is very delicate....... you could say it is timid....... and requires time and practice and purpose to bring it to the forefront of our lives..... our thoughts and emotions. Purity and clarity of awareness.......... is the essence of this inner most conscious Self ..............and is something that ought to be sanctioned and emboldened to direct the course of our lives in a more purposeful manner. This is our aim................ for ourselves and this family.
Since January 2016 we have begun to meet on Sundays to sing the Bhagavad Gita in English which has been translated meticulously by our Bapuji in the same rhyme and meter as the original Sanskrit text (this has NEVER been accomplished before now and IT IS AMAZING!!! - we sing a chapter just the way it is done in Temples of Mother India) and do aarti together. This is very special and very exciting for us.......a sublime practice to begin to embed this holy scripture deep into our psyches. Aarti is an offering of light........a prayer to all the masters and saints that walked this path before us......that they may light our way forward....one step at a time.

Through the process of our yoga practice we begin to create an inner space, an inside opening...........as a way to honor ourselves and clear the mind static and open to the deeper teachings which are embedded into our original memory....the divinity which dwells within.
