Enjoy the rest.
Enjoy the rest.
Just a note that until Kirsten and Mitchell leave November 2nd, Sunday’s morning mysore time will be shifted to 7 to 930 am.
Just to let you know that due to Ram being sick with the flu, we have to postpone our Sutra discussion this Sunday September 24. Will post new date as soon as we have one.
From Tarik Thami, yoga teacher in Tokyo:
“No Pain, no Yoga” Sri K Pattabhi Jois
On pain, Injuries, suffering and a few more things…
Maybe that was the best answer Guruji came up with, over the years, when students kept complaining about their “pain”.
If we consider practice as a mirror of our life, we all know that life without pain is not real and you can only avoid it for so long. Many times, avoiding the inevitable will transform that minor body “pain” into a major life suffering. Practice is not a tool to create your ideal pretend, imaginary world or the image that “you” want to see. Good and bad, pain and pleasure, are different sides of the same coin of “All is Coming.”
Award–winning choreographer Akram Khan brings the full range of his artistry to bear in his newest work, Until the Lions, based on the ancient epic Mahabharata, using both Indian kathak and modern dance in a tale of transformation and justice exacted by a bride abducted on her wedding day.

Enjoy the rest day!
We will be back with our monthly discussion on Sunday September 24 at 10:00 at Karen’s house, 336 W Dana St, 94041, until 11:30. Bring your translations as usual.
We plan to discuss sutra 2.22.
For the liberated one, the Seen ceases to be manifest yet continues to manifest for those still in bondage.
Kirsten and Mitchell are situated with a place to stay while they are here 9/24 to 11/2 or thereabouts, but they still are in need of a car to use. There is a chance of some Rolfing from Mitchell in exchange…..
If you can help, and you don’t know how to contact them, message me and I can put you in touch with them.
Pushpam 3 is here, thanks to Claire, for bringing them back. 10 dollars for the issue. You can get one from me Wednesday, if you want one sooner message me and I’ll leave you a copy in the office tomorrow morning. The theme of this issue is suffering.
I also have a few copies of Pushpam 2 still available, also 10 dollars, if you didn’t get a copy of that. I am putting the last copy of Pushpam 1 in the library so you can check it out if you want to read it.
For those who haven’t heard of it Pushpam, more about it here.
