Throwback 20 years, hanging out with Kyangchak Lama in his cave with a view.He was known as 'Prostration' Lama because he had bowed to the ground so many times (a golf ball sized callus formed on his forehead).After Reting Monastery was destroyed by the Red Guard, at age 17 Kyangchak Lama become a wandering ascetic but was later imprisoned and tortured by the Chinese.At 47 he escaped prison and Tibet arriving in India via Nepal .What he preserved in his head was a rare meditation practice Gelug Chöd (visualizing your mind zipping out your head and your body offered up as a feast for demons etc)This he employed with other techniques to heal people.In the 90s a small monastery was built up to his cave, where a pot on the stove usually contained some unidentifiable rib cage. Just picture a b&b with twice daily exorcisms, sick people arriving from every Indian community.His advice on the best human thigh bones for making trumpets sticks in my mind "first, find the corpse of a young girl who has just died in childbirth".More alarming than that was not bathing for 10 days, then finding the pipe bringing water from the hot spring was broken.Never take the miracle of indoor plumbing for granted. #kyangchaklama#prostrations#lamas#gelugchod#chöd#chod#thighbonetrumpets#exorcism#meditation#tibetanbuddhism#cave#meditationcave#tibetanbuddhism#healer#travel#india#himalayas#manali#monastery#chodpa

A man came to the Prophet and said:
- 'O Messenger of Allah! I had a dream at night while I was sleeping in which I was praying behind a tree, when I prostrated the tree prostrated along with me. Then I heard it saying, "O Allah! Record for me, a reward with You for it, remove a sin for me by it, and store it away for me with You, and accept it from me as You accepted it from Your worshipper Dawud). Al-Hasan said: "Ibn Juraij said to me: 'Your grandfather said to me: 'Ibn Abbas said: 'So the Prophet recited (an Ayah of) prostration then prostrated.'" (He said) "So Ibn Abbas said: 'I listened to him, and he was saying the same as the man informed that the tree had said.'"

Definitely a highlight of the program was the Buddhist temple stay in the mountains of South Korea. On the night of our arrival, we did 108 bows, a meditative practice for reflection and surrendering one's ego. While I consider myself more reflective than most (maybe to a fault), it had been a long while since I dedicated focused time to reflect on the state of my heart and mind. Afterwards, I asked the head monk about forgiveness. I told her how hard it was for me to truly let go of the pain from people who had hurt me, especially those who did so knowingly. It is what I admire most about Buddhism, the intentionality of transcending anger and revenge, consciously choosing to send love instead. She smiled and said, this is very difficult for us all. We learn to forgive and to send love, because harboring resentment and anger toward anyone only depletes our own energy. We are the ones who have to live in our body and mind, not those who hurt us. If we hold onto anger, the only one who suffers is one's self. And what good does that do us?

Yogi power practice. The original vinyasa. Ancient and universal. Deep surrender in motion to the ocean of infinite potential that is the perfection of Guru, in and through You. A moving practice today in flow for a good part with prostrations. Honouring the first peak full moon post Solstice - Guru Purnima, with a deep bow to our teachers, lineages and the wisdoms that profoundly bless. I am so grateful.

Today we moved in rhythm and discoursed about the natural phenomenon known as entrainment; how the simplest practice of engaging movement and breath can entrain the mind into a state of harmonic resonance. ⚡️
We are from nature and the all pervasive primordial sound of creation resonates through us all, the AUM. 💫

When we are out of rhythm, there is discord. Rest. Remove the irritants. Life loves you and will restore you. 🌝
Attune to the frequencies of nature for our natural condition IS to exist in this one consciousness. ✨
Bathe in tonight's luna nectar and bow your brain into the wellspring of the hearts deepest truth; Guru lives within you. OM 💛

As long as we remain in #samsara we will face #unlimited #challenges or #obstacles. Our past #negative #karmas when ripened become challenges or obstacles.  We should perform #extensive #purification #practices to purify our negative karmas before they ripen.
Tibetans prostrate to purify themselves and seek merits. It is also a very good exercise which some can spend the whole day doing

Rising to the morning sun I accomplished 50 sun salutations out of #108 and I'm OK with that. I will get better at bowing with practice, my body and my mind will change, just like the summer solstice reminds me of the constant cycle of change.

Did you know? There are 14 Ayats in Quran after which making a Sajda is a compulsion, aka Sajda-e-Tilawat or The Prostrations of the Holy Quran ♥

HOW TO PERFORM? 
Face the Qiblah and without raising the hands, recite Takbeer (Allaahu Akbar), going down in the Sajda position. In Sajda, recite Subhaana rabbiyal a'alaa at least 3 times. Thereafter, reciting the Takbeer if you wish to. If you wish, you may arise from the Sajda position into the Tashahhud position. The Sajdah Tilaawat is now complete. There is no need for Salaam.

As a part of my recent temple stay, we completed the 108 prostrations (it's a true workout let me tell ya). In between each prostration, we read the phrase tied to each one. Proceeding the prostrations and meditation, we were asked which prostration spoke to us the most. I chose 102: "Feeling the grace of the universe in a droplet of water, I prostrate."
This profound statement resonated with me because, although indicative of spirituality, it doesn't have to be. And it is far deeper than religion or lack thereof. It's a reminder that I am one, but I am not JUST one. I am a part of this universe; this massive, bountiful universe. It reminds me that, although differently and in different places, we all share this earth, this universe, this life. It is much, much bigger than me, yet I still play a role. Every action and reaction I make has an effect on the universe and all its dwellings, and vice versa. Each day, as I carry on my life, I can be reminded of the immensity of the universe, my connection to all its inhabitants, and my role in even the tiniest, faintest drop of water. When I feel or see water, I feel gratitude.

Sharanam; Surrender to our inner Guru 🌟Prostrations to the Feet of our Guru who has traveled the path of the Light 🌟Shree Guru Sharanam, Shree Hare Sharanam 🌟 Guru means dispeller of Darkness and referred to as our inner teacher. When we surrender the chatter of our mind and become the empty mind through mantra, meditation will we hear the voice of our inner Guru. This Guru is the Light and has Divine Intelligence that guides us into our true loving and compassionate Self. The healing power of sharanam, surrender is something that i have felt so strongly since  the year 2004. To the point that i founded Sharanam Yoga " Healing through Surrender in 2009. This yoga practice will elevate you to an experience of peaceful unfolding while cultivating inner peace and learning to melt into Stillness. Finding a sacred repose, refuge within ourself 🌟Here i had the blessing to be part of this beautiful ceremony to prostrate to the Guru within someone else and be prostrated to the Guru within myself. Feeling the Oneness with eachother 🌟🌟#sharanam#surrender#refuge#repose#guru#innerguru#removerofdarkness#teacher#sacredrepose#oneness#lettinggo#egodeath #innervoice#intuition#prostrations #bow #humility#unfolding#innerpeace#stillness#nonduality#nomind#mantra#meditation#melting#divineguidance#light#healingpower#health#richardbrookens

Welcoming each day with a grateful heart - Can I live in a way that my roles...mom, teacher, business owner, friend, volunteer worker, sister, and woman set me free? This is a question that has been coming up for me. I am being shown that it's not only possible but it's a beautiful process "IF" I take time for self care and a consistent spiritual practice. Breathing in, I calm my body...breathing out, I smile. #yoga #meditation #sadhana #wildwoman #prostrations #salute #sunrise #breathe #destress #light #love #honor #art

Prostrations are an integral part of Tibetan Buddhist practice. It requires dedication and stamina - it's a complete cardio and abs workout! It can be done anywhere, even on holiday, in the gym.

Prostrations are part of the Ngöndro - or preliminary practices of Tibetan Buddhism. 100,000 need to be done before you can proceed on the path.

In our busy modern life, it can be difficult to set aside time to complete it. I find it extremely difficult, and have only recently restarted the practice. We take refuge in our Guru, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha with each prostration - and purify your pride, mind, body and soul in the process.

I have a long way to go before 100,000, but like all things in life, I know that with perseverance, effort and determination, each prostration beings me a little closer to my goal - of becoming a better person for all sentient beings.

Just take three steps, stop, get down on their knees and then their hands and stretch out flat on their stomachs, touching their foreheads to the ground, before standing back up.

NAVARATRI ~ #DAY 8:

8. Tripurasundari

Maa Tripurasundari is one of the Dasa maha Vidyas. The name Mahavidyas comes from the Sanskrit roots, with maha meaning ‘great’ and vidya meaning, 'revelation, manifestation, knowledge, or wisdom. Shaktas(Goddess worshipper’s) believe, “the one Truth is sensed in ten different facets; the Divine Mother is adored and approached as ten cosmic personalities,” the Dasa-Mahavidya (“ten-Mahavidyas”). Tripurasundari, also known as Lalita, signifies beauty and the grandeur of the three worlds. She is the foremost and the purest form of Adi Shakti. Tripurasundari is made up of three different Goddesses or the 3 Goddesses of the 3 worlds: Shodashi – the Goddess who signifies youth, Lalita – who signifies childhood and Rajarajeshvari who is the Queen or the ruler. She is the most beautiful of the Shakti Goddesses in her appearance with a naturally fragrant body. 
The Divine mother is to be meditated upon as shining in a vermilion-red body, with three eyes, sporting a crown of rubies studded with the crescent moon, a face all smiles, a splendid bust, one hand holding a jewel-cup brimming with mead, and the other twirling a red lotus. She is the awareness of the Supreme Self, Paramatman, as one with the supreme Reality or Absolute, Parabrahman. As true knowledge she is called Samvit, which is the power to comprehend all things as consciousness itself.  @omshaktikali #supremeshakti #supremepower #supremegoddess #creatoroftheuniverse #nucleusofcreation #adishakti #prostrations #pranams 🔔🙏🙏💖
