HARI OM TAT SAT
The word Yagna means ‘offering’ in English literally, though it is much more than that.
It is a Vedic process to connect and bring down the higher energies for the benefit of the world or individuals.
Interestingly, there are two types of yagna happening all the time; one by Lord Sun, who offers or burns himself, providing light, heat, and life to all living entities. He is the center or nucleus of life, without whom we can’t imagine our tiny and transient lives. He is the source of life for 84 lacs of species on planet Earth. He brings day and night, beautiful seasons as a continuous feast to our eyes, hearts, and souls.
The other yagna happens in our body, through digestion and metabolism at body level; whatever we eat is disintegrated into small particles and burnt at cell level releasing energy.
Whether one is aware of it nor not, these ‘yagnas’ have been programmed and are cosmic designs of the superior intelligence.
Surya Namaskaras (SN) is yogic practice of acknowledging, connecting, honoring, and offering obeisance to the solar yagna leading to unity of human into Divine, a technique of aligning to the cosmic geometry.
Sunday morning (30-11/2014 @ 7 am), with a handful of enthusiastic practitioners at the center we began SN yagna by activating the Agni Kshetram, Manipura Chakra, invocation prayer, and Surya Gayatri by facing to the Sun, and everyone could complete 18 rounds happily.
Every week the number of rounds would be increased incrementally so that by the upcoming Ratha Saptami, the birthday of Lord Sun on the Monday 26th January 2015, (fortunately it’s Republic day this time), all can offer a humble garland of 108 SN rounds each.
Ratha Saptami (RS) is a grand yearly event at Dhrti Yoga Center, and commonly known all over the world as Global Surya Namaskara Day. It is a very auspicious day, where we offer our humble obeisance to Lord Surya with 108 rounds of Surya Namasakaras, and here you see our champs getting ready for the same.
Sunday is Lord Rama’s day, and the Lord was Surya Vamshi, hence we will have the SN practice session on every Sunday up to RS.
Our best wishes to the practitioners who made it for today’s morning first SN yagna sadhana, and also to those Dhrti yogis would begin the practice across the seven continents of the world, and we are sure they all await RS day, we look forward to hear from them as well.
Every Sunday, this yagna would begin at 7 am to 8:15 a.m. so all are welcome. We will exclude the Sunday just before Ratha Saptami. So please mark the dates in your calendar and most importantly refer and comply with Ritucharya and practice well, so that the energies are up and you can witness your sankalpa transforming into a magical reality.
