I am in awe of the power of the practices my Guru gave me to share. I saw them at work again last week, in the meditation teachers in the Ashram MTT Upgrade course. After three months of phone calls, using mantra in some of the ways that Baba taught, these teachers are truly amazing! Not only have their own meditations deepened tremendously, but their ability to share the grace and power of this tradition will touch so many peoples’ lives! I’m truly grateful for their willingness to explore what is promised in the Shiva Sutras (1.12), “Amazement after amazement unfolds within.”
In the last day of the training, I realized that I’ve had the great privilege of training 100 meditation teachers, most of whom have completed their certification process and are teaching. Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram now has 15 meditation centers in the USA & Canada, holding regular satsangs, and more are on the way. I recognize that Baba trained me how to share so prolifically by his own generosity, and I am grateful. If I were following the ashram-model in America, the way most other ashrams operate, I’d centralize the teachings, funneling people into our front door. Of course, I always love when people can come personally, or utilize the online services I’m working so hard to provide, but I want this to be available to you in your home and in your life. If you don’t bring it into your life, then you’re not really using it. You must know your own Self right where you live, right in the middle of what you do.
Thus, today I am writing to say thank you to the many meditation teachers who are sharing Svaroopa® Vidya Meditation and Svaroopa® Yoga Meditation – and an especially big thank you to the teachers who just finished the MTT Upgrade.
with love and gratitude,
