Swami Durgananda
Spiritual Leader of Samata Yoga Australia

 

Dear Seeker

Our theme for the year is Inner Mindfulness. We can only ever change what is happening for us in the present moment.

Inner Mindfulness is maintaining a moment by moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings and body sensations. As we strengthen our mindfulness through pranayama exercises, daily mouna and meditation we will become aware of the repetitive thoughts and feelings which motivate us and colour our view of the world.

Aimed with this understanding we will be able to use our discerning faculties to choose which thoughts and feelings we will follow, and which we must learn to change. This will enable us to understand our mind of subliminal traits and smooth away our samskaras.

This year we will  learn how to strengthen our inner mindfulness with our hatha classes, workshops, retreats and of course with wonderful chanting which calms the soul.

I look forward to going on this journey with you to strengthen our Inner Mindfulness throughout 2019.

May the Grace of the Masters be with you always.

Kabir
