Georg Feuerstain.

The first book I read from him was “Yoga Gems”. In that book, he worked as an editor since it´s a book full of magic and inspirational quotes from different gurus, masters and philosophers from different times, talking about the eight limbs of the yoga practice.

I guess it´s easier to find what you´re looking for with the help of the others that were in the same search before you.

That´s what, in one way or another, all of us are and will continue doing.

Georg Feuerstain passed away on Saturday (August 25th, 2012).

Gratefulness towards him and all my thoughts are with the family.

“When a man dies, what does not leave him?

The voice of a dead man goes into fire,

his breath into wind,

his eyes into the sun,

his mind into the moon,

his hearing into the quarters of heaven,

his body into the land cheerfully.

Earth, his spirit into space.”

Yoga as an Olympic Sport?

Krishnamacharya_mysoreschool

I have been discovering so many things during the last months.

This blog is talking a lot about yoga but also, about where yoga takes you: physically, mentally and spiritually. And the conclusion, if there is one, is:

Isn´t all just the same?

Isn´t all just my body-mind-spirit mixed together, trying to find some certainty in the ocean of uncertainty that it´s this moment, life?

Here it´s the link for an article I wrote for elephant journal about Yoga as an Olympic sport. The idea it´s has been around for a while now…

So, what do you think? 🙂

Lord of the animals

Shiva_pashupati

 

Some say is Shiva. In fact, Pashupati is an epithet –another way to call- of Shiva.

Some say is the first image of a yogui. Maybe you can see it: Something like swastikasana, padmasana or mulabhandasana.

You can see the tiger there also. I like the tiger, all the animals there.

Even though Yoga seems something so fashion and popular today, some say this image/seal has 5.000 – 6.000 years!

Something tells me that man’s spiritual quest will never end.

So beautiful!

Lord Patañjali

Translation:

To the noblest of sages, Patanjali, who gave us yoga for serenity of mind,

grammar for purity of speech and medicine for the perfection of body, I salute.

First I honor Patanjali whose upper part has a human form,

whose arms hold a conch and a disc and is crowned by a cobra

with a thousand heads. Oh incarnation of Adisesa,

my humble salutations to thee.
