Sunday Conference with Diana…
May 11, 2014
We honor our mother first – in the vedic tradition, the mother is the first Guru – our first teacher.
Guru – “gu” – darkness “ru” – the destroyer of darkness
In the Indian tradition, who are the 2 most important individuals after your Mother? 2nd is Father and 3rd is Guest.
Honor our Mothers for the gift of life and being our first teacher
“Vande gurunam charanaravinde”
I bow to the lotus feet of our great teachers,
“sandarshita svatma sukhava bodhe”
Who uncovers our true self and awakens happiness
The true teacher/guru is our practice. Yoga helps to keep us present and focused.
A led classes affords the energy of group vinyasa; all at the same attention- at the same time
A mysore practice is at your own pace; your personal practice
Whichever method of practice, it is the jewel – the light – your emotional nourishment
