On Tuesday October 18, 2011, children and families of Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG) held the official opening of their new children's yoga classroom located in a Gurukulam Dormitory of the SRSG campus. This is the first of three rooms which will be devoted to children's yoga programming leading up to the International Yoga Youth and Children's Retreat (YYCR) December 22-31, 2011, and followed by an Indian International Yoga Youth and Children's Retreat scheduled for November 2012.
What a beautiful shining night here! After a Shakti-filled puja with all of us drenched in the Divine, Jagat [Jagadananda Das] explained the significance of Divali, the night of a million lights, where candles light the landscape as far as the eye can see from the earth to the rooftops. It is a celebration of light over darkness on the personal level as well as the cosmic and the historic, where dharma, the essential nature of all beings and all forms, firmly takes root. Divali also celebrates the return of Rama from the epic battlefield of The Ramayana. He, as man and God, has vanquished the demon Ravana and freed his consort Sita to finally bring her home. As they enter the city, it is as though the light of all worlds has inextricably seized this moment, permeating all living beings with that Light. All is well. Divali celebrates this precise moment in us all at every level.
Swami Veda recommends two books, Sutras of the Inner Teacher and Chariot of Sadhana, for deepening one’s understanding of Yoga and writes further
“Dear leading teachers,
I would really like to have these 2 books by Drs. Martin and Marian Jerry included in essential studies of advanced TTP and SRSG students.
When I was a teenager I would sometimes ask my Mom whether I could go visit my best friend, who lived not too far away. Since I would always return in a very happy mood, my mother did not hesitate to say yes, but always murmured to herself in Hindi Maula ki daur masjid tak a priest s run is just up to his temple). But my friend and I spent such happy times together talking giggling laughing as teenagers do over nothing at all I did not mind visiting her over and over again. She was my BFF, best friend forever) well, not quite forever.
