Resources of the Himalayan Yoga Tradition

A Holiday Blessing from Swami Ritavan Bharati

With a gentle touch to heart-strings in a song of gratitude,
and follow the sonorous tune to silence.
A silent cradle of complete surrender where a light of love is born.
Mind smiling, all from the wordless prayer of giving and forgiving.
Let Mother Earth sing the love-tune of life for all Her creatures today and each day of your life.
Blessings of the Tradition for you and your loved ones, and may you enjoy a gracious New Year.
