Guru Purnima Day: Teachers and Teachings(2)

15 Jul

Aujourd’hui, 15 Juillet 2011, nous aurons la plus grande et belle lune de l’année. Dans la tradition hindoue et bouddhiste est célébré GURU PURNIMA.

Le yoga est une pratique spirituelle, il n’y a pas de yoga sans dévotion. La fête de GURU PURNIMA est une si belle tradition! L’opportunité nous est donnée d’honorer nos maîtres spirituels.

C’est un privilège que d’avoir rencontré dans cette vie présente des êtres humains qui vous ouvrent une porte sur l’éternité. J’en suis reconnaissante au delà des mots. Infinite gratitude, love and pranams to Sharon Gannon and David Life for the gift of Jivamukti Yoga, for being living inspirations of compassion, wisdom and fearlessness. Thank you for believing that awakening is possible and that kindness will bring success. OM bolo Shri Tripura Sundari Ma, OM bolo Shri Deva Das ki JAI!

En ce jour très spécial, toute ma gratitude va aussi à mes gurubais, à toutes celles et ceux qui m’ont apporté leurs lumières et parfois leur part d’ombre (autant d’occasions uniques pour évoluer).OM bolo shri sat guru, bhagavan ki JAI! Cette foi /shradda(en sanskrit) partagée me porte –

“Faith is a way in which your are connected to the universal truth. Faith and love are intimately connected. As it is said in the Ramayana, without devotion there is no faith; without faith there is no devotion. In a way it’s the guru’s own incredible relation to God that’s the transmission of living faith, the fact that he or she is living in the light of God. That connection is love. A book doesn’t give a living transmission. It’s the light coming through the guru, the remover of darkness. Faith really comes from within you, and the guru is awakening it. Faith comes through grace. You can cultivate it by opening your spiritual heart and quieting your mind until you feel the validity of your identity with your deeper Self. The qualities of that Self are peace,joy, compassion, wisdom and love. Faith is not belief. Faith is what is left when your beliefs have all been blown to hell. Faith is in the heart, while beliefs are in the head. Experiences, even spiritual experiences, come and go. As long as you base your faith on experience, your faith is going to be constantly flickering, because your experience keep changing. The moment you recognize that faith lies behind experience, that’s just being, not the experience of being but being, then it’s just “Ah so” ” Extrait de “BE LOVE NOW, the path of the heart” par Ram Dass

Je dédie ma pratique aux gourous des mes gourous. Il y a un fil très fort qui nous relie. Je me sens plus forte d’appartenir à une famille, un lignage, Parampara . Ce lignage remonte à des temps immémoriaux qui nous ramènent à Ishvara, Shiva, le premier Yogi, notre premier gourou. OM NAMAH SHIVAYA.

Enfin, cette journée qui a apporté son lot d’annonces de décès me rappelle aussi le privilège (et la responsabilité) que nous avons d’être simplement en vie.

Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to have woken up, I am alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it, I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings, I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others, I am going to benefit others as much as I can. H.H. the XIV Dalai Lama
