Flowers and FruitMarch has arrived filled to the brim with wonderful opportunities here at Param Yoga for your continued exploration into who you are as you advance upon your path. Please check out all the fun and informative events below and be sure to save June 11th to join us for another amazing Yoga Day at Rancho Providencia!

As Spring approaches, it ushers in the promise of renewal, rebirth and rejuvenation. This year, Easter comes early (March 27), because it always falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon (March 23) occurring on or after the vernal equinox (March 20). For many of us, Easter offers a time to pause and reflect on the phenomenon of the short life of Jesus Christ and how his teachings continue to impact the whole of humanity. Imagine if you had lived during his lifetime and were able to spend time in his presence ā€“ what must that have been like? Would you have recognized this simple man as the Christ? Would you have questioned and/or mocked him? Interesting to consider, even though we shall never know. We do know that the legacy of Christ recognizes Him as a living Avatar who came to assist us humans on earth to learn to live from love and to trust that we are capable of living and behaving as He did. It was His promise that we are capable of even more than he demonstrated in his short 33 years. How many have learned and successfully demonstrated his teachings and advanced to live eternally in peace and love?

Collage of the MastersSince the time of Christ there have been many realized beings who have graced the earth, perhaps lacking in the remarkable popularity and longevity that Jesus created, but impactful nonetheless. Whether they are avatars or incarnated advanced beings returning to shine Light for us, we cannot truly know. As Yogis, we embrace the idea that the great ones come to teach us how to move into realization in this lifetime, and if we recognize them and pay attention through their immense love, the promise of Christ lives on in all of them.

While each of us, through innate desire and tenacity, has the ability to create our highest good in this world, if we are fortunate to discover a teacher who makes our heart sing, the speed in which your progress accelerates can be remarkable. Here at Param Yoga we are blessed to have the ability to offer training in Kriya Yoga, Yoga Sutras and Sanskrit, all through the auspices and leadership of a fully realized being, Paramahamsa Prajnanananda. If you have the inclination or perhaps simply the curiosity to be exposed to such a soul, please join us and let the obvious love move you.

From my heart to yours I wish you happy springtime, Happy Easter, happy everything!

Love, Love, Love,

ā€œIn essence, it can be said that a disciple, through his apprenticeship with the realized master, should try to discipline his extrovert mind and senses and make them more Truth-oriented. Yoga is really a discipline. Undisciplined people cannot enjoy the real beauty of yoga, which is already in them, though they are not aware of it. Those who follow the realized master and his teachings about scriptures, and practice a technique like Kriya Yoga, can really enjoy the constant state of yoga.ā€ ā€“ Paramahamsa Prajnanananda
