Yours, Mine, Ours

Consider the language we use on a regular basis. How often do we use possessive adjectives to describe the things and people of our life? This is mine. That is yours. 

If we bring our awareness to how much of life’s conflicts arise in the separation of ourselves from God and others, we will begin to realize the challenge in the life of yoga. For where we can find oneness in such separation?

Salutation Unto Thee!

In the 11th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita are given the words “Salutation unto thee, a thousand times salutation unto thee, and again and again salutation unto thee.” These are the words uttered by Arjuna after witnessing the divine universal form of God in its entire multifarious splendor. His mind and devotion are not shattered into a thousand perceptions and appreciations by this experience but are inexorably drawn to God, the One who is the source and essence of all. This is the path of yoga, of oneness. In all the experiences of our pilgrimage through this vast munificent emporium of God’s manifestation let us always and forever more seek and find the essence of the One. Salutations unto thee, a thousand times salutation unto thee!
