Today is the big HOLI. If yesterday was little Holi, then what!? SVB even played! My hair is still green. Forget oil--It doesn't work. You need vaseline as our wise predecessors warned us years back---and red stuff came out of my ears when I washed today. The birds are calling but the playful voices, pot-banging and makeshift drums won't resume until after morning practice.
The Vedic Sacred Art program is a tool to help meditators in their concentration and inner energy experiences. It combines the essence of fine-art, of wisdom and of yoga-meditation, to learn to artfully express the inner self. Our emotions are the bridge between the body, the soul and the infinite realms of spirits, so the spiritual creativity reveals spheres of joy and happiness.
Cottage 31 was the setting for an inspired workshop January 2009. Radhika, SRSG Ashram’s sacred art teacher, guided guests and ashramites in the practice of dharana through painting the geometrical forms associated with each chakra.
Namaskar Dear Readers
We have had a most auspicious month here at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama, especially for the two weeks of our recent TTP. On Diwali, the ashram basked in the light of the little deepaks placed all around, while the final day of the retreat was lit by the silvery full moon.
