Here’s a short article and video from Sadhguru that helps us understand that we should not be too focused on our physical limitations but rather submit totally to being in our sadhana/yoga practice.  This is so reassuring for us aging Yoginis  who are dedicated to our sadhana!  The Blessings are constant in different ways at different points in our lives.  Thanks Sadhguru for your wisdom and for sharing with us and thanks for the Isha Foundation and volunteers that deliver so much media as virtual Darshan with us.  Namaskaram.

Kumaré (2011) – YouTube

Video

Here’s a film on Youtube that is about 70 minutes long.  It’s quite interesting about the phenomenon  of Yogis, do we need them, are they gifted enlightened beings.  There is an underlying question that we all can ask ourselves can we find the answers that we need within self.  A Teacher can offer us lessons, practice, tools, skills….but what really motivates us to put any or all of what we seek to learn into our lives?  Do feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below and share with others.  Namaste….OM
