Love Serve Meditate Realize

Saturday, Apr 01, 2017 A Message from Marydale – April 2017



What a wonderful way to celebrate springtime together by sharing Earth Day and Yoga Day on April 22nd! This will be our Sixth Annual Yoga Day at gorgeous Rancho Providencia here in Chatsworth, and it promises to be a love-drenched day filled with the Grace of Yoga, wisdom, meditation, music, delcious food, camaraderie, gratitude, and more. Please join us and give yourself the perfect gift to reinforce your practice, rediscover your relationship with our beloved planet, retreat, refresh and recharge on all levels of who you are.

Our wise and wonderful Swami Atmavidyananda Giri recently shared this thought with us: “Why give thanks and to whom should we give thanks? First we give our thanks to God, for everything is provided for the opportunity and possibility of self-realization. Be thankful to our parents. We are indebted to them and we must be thankful to them for this physical form. The privilege of self-realization is not offered to other species. Our parents took care of us and we are indebted to them and thankful for all our teachers, for from each one of them we have learned for our good. Be thankful for all wisdom from saints and sages. Give continuous thanks to our environment, water, air, sunlight, all of nature. We must protect our environment by not polluting plants, trees, or any other part of nature. We must give thanks to our society, for we cannot live alone…without food, shelter, clothing… Be thankful to all people who have contributed to our growth. I offer my thanks, for this life is a blessing. Do not take anything for granted.”

It is in coming together that we raise our vibration to new heights, which can and will affect our lives, families, community, environment, and the world at large in a very positive way. Don’t minimize your importance. What you think, do, and say affects the whole. So, on April 22nd, be a pivotal part of raising consciousness to make the world a better place by simply being the light of Divine consciousness in the world.

May deep peace be upon this planet, your life, and our world. Go out there and shine on!

Love, Love, Love,

“If you accept yoga as your life, you should be clear as to what you need. Live in moderation, be strict about yourself or it will bring chaos and obstacles on the path of yoga. The cause of disease is the mind and the desire to satisfy the mind. Human wants are illuminated, one desire is fulfilled as another desire comes up. With limited resources you cannot fulfill unlimited desires. Mind is confused and full of desire. Be careful.” — Paramahamsa Prajnanananda
