Yoga in Juneau, Alaska
March 27 - March 29
Surrender to the Divine teacher within is Yoga (chitta vritti nirodha)
Let your teacher be love itself —Rumi
Yoga sutras Book 1: 23-29 speak of the Inner Divine Teacher (Isvara) and how we can become attuned to Its direction. Patanjali writes that there is only one “teacher of all teachers” and we might even say that that teacher Is US since Yoga is the realization of our oneness on the level of the mind/spirit. As Rumi commands, that teacher must be of the nature of love itself or else we’d be listening to a teacher that was working against its own interests.
Learning to distinguish the voice of Love from the other voices in our heads is the goal of Isvara Pranidhana. When we admit that we don’t always know what is best for us, (much less for anyone else!) we can surrender the judgment of the ego and let the clear voice for unity and love emerge.
