Recently I received a phone call from the Isha Foundation asking if I’d be interested in travelling to Brisbane in September to continue my studies, (from the Inner Engineering course), and be initiated into Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya, a powerful 21-minute inner energy process that incorporates the breath.
Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya is a purifying energy technique which incorporates the breath. This practice aligns your entire system so that your body, mind and emotions function in harmony, establishing a chemistry of blissfulness within you.
I’m looking forward to one day in the future when I can attend this course but September was definitely out for me because – I’M GETTING MARRIED!
However here is the link for all of you.
The Inner Engineering Course presents practical wisdom in a logical, easy to understand manner to manage your body, mind, emotions, and the fundamental life energy within you and around you.
So without further ado – Let me introduce to you – Sadhguru, an Indian yogi, mystic and poet.
A few us trekked to Kagbhusandi Lake, a spectacular place and we are camped here for two days.
Every muscle in my body screaming at me and asking, “Why the hell do you bring us here. But my heart rejoices with a rapture of a completely different sort. Heart overflows with ecstasy. But body screams in pain.
These mountains… If you look at them a thousand times over, your mountain lust will not be gone. Someone asked me, “Why you’re going there every year, Sadhguru?” I said, “It’s Himalayan Lust.”
And even in the group, though we have tried to prevent this, still I think there are five or six people out of thirty-five who are coming here for second or third time. Because once the mountains catch you, they really have you in some kind of a submission.
As the mountain peaks are spilling water from the snow capped tops, I’ve been spilling a little bit of poetry. Not as white, bright, and beautiful as them, but this is me. I’m not a Himalaya. So here, let me read one for you. Haven’t done this in a long time.
HOME AT HAMDE
The valley floor of Hamde
seems like Home to me who
is being drawn to these less
travelled trails among these
spectacular Mountain peaks.
Ever since he invaded my
Breath and Being and drew
Me into his cosmic Breast
I am like an infant in the
comfort of a loving Mother’s
womb. Not a care about life
or Death. Unfettered even by
longings of the Beyond as
Here has become Beyond and
Beyond is Here.
I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the research, investigation, and production of stories and articles I feel are worth writing about.
