On this Day, the full moon between July and August.  We are asked to remember our teachers, and honor the scriptures and textbooks that bring us knowledge and light the way on our path.

GURU BRAHMA,
GURU VISHNU,
GURU DEVO MAHESHWARAH

GURU SAKSHAT PARA-BRAHMA,
TASMAI SHRI GURUVE NAMAH.

  

Guru is creator

Guru is Sustainer

Guru is Transformer

Reverence for all my teachers.

Guru Sakshat is the phrase that is most predominant in our Physical Yoga practice.  this is the current teacher, in this moment what can you learn about yourself, and your world-view.  

 Create the posture, you are Brahma.  

Sustain the posture you are Vishnu.   

Watch for what is revealed in this moment.  The fragile space between doing. This is the essence of Guru Sakshat.  Learning what we can from our current predicament.  

Whether the quiet space of child’s posture, or becoming the eye of the storm in your most challenging posture.  This is it, this is where the Yoga comes.  don’t miss it. 

Release the posture back to where it came from,

you are Maheshwarah, or Shiva.  Transformation.

 We have to release what is, to make room for what we are becoming.  

 See all as your Guru, especially your biggest challenges.

Om Shanti, I’ll see you in class.
