Resources of the Himalayan Yoga Tradition

Rising Up

Swami Rama, when he was going to leave the country in 1981 said, he was leaving his body in '81, and he said, "I've been stuck in this country washing everybody's diapers." Repeatedly, repeatedly, in every public statement for that year he said, "All I've done since I have come into this country is wash people's diapers." Meaning that people are so stuck in the lower chakras, that it's such a hard work to raise them from that. All human emotion is stuck there. And we talk of rising up, but it's difficult.
