Yoga is about how you deal with life, not how you open your heart to other people. If you have a problem with the relationships in your life or the way things are going, then your problem is the way you’re looking at it from the inside. Yoga shows you how to obtain an inner opening to peace within and to an inner knowing.
Shivaratri is an important Hindu festival that celebrates the “night of Shiva.” In this satsang, Gurudevi expounds on the symbology embedded in the dancing Shiva, Nataraja, who expresses the incredible power, beauty and majesty behind the manifestation of the universe.
Gurudevi says, don’t let your mind get too far from Consciousness. Keep your mind on a short leash. To accomplish this, she recommends the yogic remedy of steering your mind to Consciousness, your Self. Repeat mantra for two minutes to give you the experiential knowing of your own Self. Elevate your state.
