|Rev. Jaganath Carrera|Ahimsa, The Yogic Practice of Non-Harming
When working to apply ahimsa, the principle of harmlessness, to your life, ask yourself "How would this situation look to an enlightened being? How might they respond? If I shine the light of non-harming on the situation, how would I act?" The moral and ethical precepts of Yoga are not just rules to memorize, they are gentle nudges to awaken our inner wisdom.
OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
**Shivaratri: The Night of Shiva **
Shiva is the Lord of all Yogi's. During the time of the new moon in February, Shivarati is celebrated. This is when the mind is most open and sensitive. Tradition states that any sadhana or practices done during that night is magnified 1000x's, reaping multiple benefits. We will explore stories of Shiva, learning the symbols and deeper meanings of Nataraj, the Dancing Shiva. Sing chants to Shiva. At the end of the evening an Arati, waving of lights will be performed. This is sure to be a beautiful and uplifting evening.
