The Significance of Guru Purnima | Isha Celebrations.

Saturday, July 12th is Guru Pournima/Purnima, do you know the Significance? If you are benefitting and practicing Yoga/Meditation, this is one of the most important times to be aware of and do some special Pranams.  I usually go to Ganesha Temple and Sai Baba Temple in Queens with my Temple Buddy Nandini, and we will do so this year, (my favorite Isha Satsang Hosts are in India for this Special time and for the Inauguration of the AdiYogi Complex, ).  If you like to know more please do click the link below the image of OM.  This link offers an eleven minute video with Sadhguru, as well as some informative texts, and ways to sign up for the live webcast.

Once again thanks to Sadhguru and The Isha Foundation Volunteers for they are hosting a huge Program, In India,  which is going to be a live webcast.  I do hope one day soon a huge transition occurs here in the USA when people who practice so-called “yoga” will turn up their sadhana a notch and seek to grow inwardly with humble acts leading to Gratitude and Grace.  I wish that each one of us may seek true Blessings from conscious actions we choose to practice.  Please share….OM

  1. The first time I practiced Isha Kriyah, I got distracted about 3 times because I kept looking at my phone to see when the timer was being done. I can’t sit still for too long nor be in silence for too long and when I am unaware of what’s happening, I tend to get really anxious. So me sitting still and not knowing when the timer was going to end made me really anxious. Repeating multiple times “I am not the brain, I am not even the body” made me actually feel like I was free and as if I wasn’t this body or mind. The second time I did it, I only checked my phone twice instead of 3 times. During the time though, I had to pee very badly. When I started to do Isha Kriyah, the desire to pee had suddenly gone away. I am really starting to believe that when you say “I am not the mind, I am not even the body” you really start to leave your body and mind cuz all of your thoughts or desire to do something goes away. This time I whispered “I am not the mind, I am not even the body” because I feel like I am going to get distracted with how loud I am, but I don’t know if it is better to do it out loud or silently whisper it to yourself. After doing it 4 times. it was difficult but its only going to get easier and its something I have to get used to and be comfortable with.

    • Please do fit in at least 4 times for your home IK practice to be able to develop your yogic breathing properly and for the other benefits to manifest. Great that you are becoming a believer of the practice. Do use your full voice for the effect of the vibrations to do the necessary work. Namaste
