Dhrti Yogis – In Action

At the crack of dawn, 32 participants of Dhrti were set to welcome Surya today on this auspicious day of Ratha Saptami.  Began with their sankalpa to do Surya Namaskara – yes as per their will power – 16 enthusiastic participants completed 108 rounds.

The event began at 6 am with 3 OMs and shanti path followed by 11 rounds of Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra and 11 rounds of Gayatri Mantra. The practice of Surya Namaskara began with mantras being chanted by all in each and every round.

Thus keeping the energy following,  SURYA NAMASKARA CHAMPS completed 108 rounds in less than 75 minutes and were still energetic. They were honored with certificate as a token of appreciation, encouragement from Dhrti. Closing the session with sweets, shanti path, all dispersed with cheerful spirits.

Dhrti expresses heartfelt gratitude to Venkatesh, 6 pm practitioner, who made arrangements for the place, each and every participant performing Surya Namaskara today in community, and all those who continued with their practice at their place be in Bangalore  or other part of the world:-)

Congratulations to one and all. Let us make this day part of our daily routine from now on and continue with this Meditation In Action.

      Thank you Abhishek, great to receive news from practitioners who are far away. Distance makes no difference right – though far you are always remembered.

    Truly appreciate the enthusiasm and determination of all ‘nextgen’ yogis. It was like a synchronized symphony of the body, mind, heart, and spirit – Ramana

    It was a feeling by itself after completing 108 rounds of Surya Namaskar.Mantra’s were strong enough, not to get us weak at any point.Definitely,everybody would have done more in numbers then their Sankalpa.

    Surya Namaskar increases the anti oxidant properties in the human body. It is effective in improving blood circulation and self-healing power of the body.

    It is nice to see a big group. I did the surya namaskar 108 times at my home. I have already planned to do once in a month to the count of 108 and 12 on a daily basis. it feels good after doing. A sense of calmness and peace.

    Dear all,
    I started doing Surya Namaskars on that day with a sankalpa of 51 rounds but when i reached that many rounds i was not at all feeling tired may be because of the team spirit or Satya’s mantras or because of the nice weather or all together.Then i thought of finishing some more rounds and reached 85 rounds without any difficulties then thought of stopping but because of Satya’s encouragement i made it to 108 rounds. But throughout the whole day i was feeling very light and energetic. And now i feel nothing is impossible in the world if you wish to do something from your base of your heart and when it accompanies with good support and encouragement you can definitely achieve that.:-)
