Pearls of Wisdom
2 April, 2008

Hari OM Beloved Sisters and Brothers in Yoga,

This week's inspirational message from
Sri Guruji Reverend Jaganath Carrera:
OM Shanti

Practice Acceptance

"Accepting the pain that comes in life as a help for purification is a central practice in Yoga. Day after day, opportunities arise to practice acceptance, but instead we find ourselves caught up in resistance, anger, or depression. In the name of acceptance, seekers expend great energy struggling to reconcile
their beliefs with their own shortcomings and the disappointing realities of life. But the struggle is not fruitless; it brings us to a deeper self-knowledge and a truer understanding of life."
            - OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
OM Shanti
