I had a discussion with a great master in Japan, and we were talking about the various people who are working to translate the Zen books into English, and he said, ‘That’s a waste of time. If you really understand Zen, you can use any book. You could use the Bible. You could use Alice in Wonderland. You could use the dictionary, because the sound of the rain needs no translation.
AN EVENT NOT TO BE MISSED!! We are SO SO excited and beyond grateful for this very special evening!! 🙌 In conjunction with Philadelphia's Ratha Yatra Festival, world renowned kirtan artist, Gaura Vani is bringing his love of sacred mantra music to Palo Santo! Gaura's pure love of devotional music is a true gift of transcendence & transformation. The sweet sound vibrations will undoubtedly permeate the layers of your being and crack open your heart. Don't miss this fun night of shared joy and love, stories, song and dance!
Gaura Vani is a multi-disciplinary artist - fluent in music, film and visual arts. He is most known for his Mantra Music performances. Gaura Vani's events are unifying and transporting - a mix of participatory rhythm and song, story and dance. He has traveled in Africa, the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia performing both as a solo artist and with his sacred music ensembles “The Hanumen” and “Juggernauts”.
Gaura Vani began studying sacred Indian music at the age of six in the ancient temple town of Vrindavan at a traditional Gurukula school. 🙏 He continues to share the magic he received and performs at festivals like Lollapalooza, Floyd Fest, Beloved, Bhakti Fest and Wanderlust, as well as eclectic venues like private homes, theatres, temples, and yoga studios.

Вот такой вот мешочек для джапы у меня сегодня из мыслеформ уплотнился в твердую материю. Давно теплилось желание пошить, и только сегодня я его исполнила))). Ом Мата Сарасвати Намаха!
Holy Tulsi is a girls best friend!
Tulsi is worshipped as the Goddess Lakshmi, who is the consort of Lord Vishnu the Creator. During prayers or pooja as it is referred to in the Hindu language, they offer Tulsi leaves to the feet of Vishnu, as it signifies the offering of love. Tulsi is also regarded as a living deity! .
The Tulsi plant also has many healing properties aside from its religious symbolism, making it ideal for worship since it has the ability to heal. The extracts from Tulsi leaves are used in traditional Ayurvedic medicines for common colds, headaches, stomach problems and even heart problems. The juice of its leaves is used for treating cough, cold, headaches, stomach disorders, inflammation and other illnesses. The Tulsi plant also reduces stress, enhances stamina, promotes a healthy metabolism and is a natural immune booster!
Come to greet this new day, catch a glimpse she is on the rise, on the move and will not wait for you to get your s@#! together. Drop everything superfluous and do what you were meant to do! Maybe that means follow the sun from dawn to dusk, maybe it means seal up that dissertation, run for office, paint the visions you see, sing your melody, dance dance dance... if you have children or others you are responsible for they will benefit by being in association with a person who follows their hearts purpose!
Its murky territory and tricky to get out of the firmly established patterns? Yogasana is a pattern buster! We have Asana classes all day long at Jaya where all are always welcome! 🏳️🌈#radicalinclusivity

Kirtan... It cracks me open every time.
Kirtan is the melodic chanting of Mantra in community, an act of invocation, recognition and gratitude to the Hindu deities who represent the beautiful and different parts of ourselves and who we can call to for support and guidance in the changeable nature of life. We also chant ancient Vedic Mantras which in their vibratory essence encourage us to move beyond the stuff that keeps us feeling stagnant, dull or fearful in life. We unveil the power of sound and vibration.
There's one happening @thepracticebaliyoga tonight 7:45pm and every Sunday 6pm led by @ellearthur 🙏🏻 We would love you to come gather and chant with us whenever you're in Canggu 🌸 all you need is your presence. You don't even need to chant, simply being there and receiving is enough in itself.
It is always a blessing to be in the presence of spaces filled with Bhakti... open hearts and voices expressed.
What is the real you? What you think is you may not really be you. When looking try to go deeper than the skin to the soul. If there’s anything I’ve learnt from our friends at Jivamukti Yoga, it’s that we should always choose love over fear and hatred.
Comment below what real love looks like to you?
Wyatt Woodsmall on emotional stability - “In order to master you emotions you have to control your heart. But before you can control anything you have to be aware of it. You have to be aware of what is going on in all times in your internal state and external behavior. Both directions are needed.
Only through awareness you gain control. You see, in this world you can be one of two things - cause/effect.
When you are the cause, you are in control and self determined - when you change the world changes. When you are effected you are a victim, you have giving up to forces outside of you and beyond you. The only way you can change is if the world changes. And you become an emotional roller coaster as things continue to change around you.
Look for that which does not change. Look for that which you have control over.
When you discover that which you have control over, than you become a master of yourself.
