Happy Guru Purnima Day! This is a day designed for us to acknowledge our teachers. It is named after the great sage Vyasa, who is regarded as the Guru of Gurus, and the author as well as a character in the Hindu epic Mahabharata.
Purna means wholeness, complete.
When Donna Farhi was asked “what is yoga” she responded “In its broadest sense Yoga is a return to wholeness. There is an uncompromising belief in yoga philosophy that wholeness is our implicit birthright. But most of us forget our wholeness, or in yogic terms we forget our true nature, and we live in a kind of illusion that we are alone. We suffer from a kind of spiritual amnesia that makes us feel separate from our authentic selves, separate from others, separate from nature.”
My hope is that by anchoring back into our bodies through yoga, we can restore this wholeness and ultimately our sense of connection to the world. Give peace a chance, give your whole life a chance and bring wholeness back to your families and communities. Love yourself, love your day, love your life!
