“Do anything and everything with the idea of serving God, serving humanity, serving the world-at-large. You can serve everything. You can serve a table; you can serve a chair. If you don’t pull the chair mercilessly from one corner to another corner, you are serving the chair. Move it gently. Whatever we handle roughly, will feel the pain. Not only human beings feel pain and cry—everything in the creation does. There should be a gentle, soft, and yogic touch in everything, and with a compassionate feeling behind it.
“God bless you. Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.”
HH Sri Swami Satchidananda
Swami Satchidananda is a very inspiring teacher, and has done so much to move the path of yoga forward in the western world since the 1960’s. He is a grandfather of yoga in our time. You might like to know He was the great guru that opened the Woodstock festival in 1969.
I have a beautiful book written by him, that I have had for many years that never fails to inspire and light my life with love and healing
I am on the mailing list for HH Sri Swami Satchidananda. And often get lovely things sent through to me. This came through last week so I thought you might like to consider this.
