Surya Namaskar: A Means to Effortless Meditation

Surya Namaskar: A Means to Effortless Meditation
Click here to share
Repeating the mantras as I perform Surya Namaskar allows my whole body to turn to God's love. A warm enthusiasm begins to grow. All this takes place in a few minutes as I prepare for chanting and meditation. I emerge after meditation refreshed and breathing naturally.
 

New Jersey, United States

I have been teaching hatha yoga and practicing Surya Namaskar for over twenty years. Although I have always thought about the mantras for each posture of Surya Namaskar, I never knew how to use them, or where to start.

Now I am making the effort to incorporate the mantras into my practice of Surya Namaskar. They are making my practice even more powerful, and I am left feeling very grounded and full of clarity and love.

Thank you, Gurumayi. I feel as if you have poured new life and enthusiasm into my practice. I am so grateful.

It was such a pleasure to read "Design concept by Gurumayi Chidvilasananda" after watching these 27 slides about Surya Namaskar.
 
I have been practicing Surya Namaskar for more than two years and it is indeed magical for me. I feel refreshed after practicing. I have read about Surya Namaskar and its benefits for the body from a physical activity and exercise point of view. And now it feels so awesome to know its importance in a spiritual context—and to learn that from my beloved Guru. 
 
Thank you so much, Gurumayi.
 

Pune, India

Thank you for this information, which allows me to put so many teachings together: posture and breathing, mantra repetition, treating the body as a divine temple, worship, centering the mind—and now another golden jewel, the bija mantras.

This morning, I memorized the bija mantras and said them aloud with the poses. I feel so rejuvenated and simply but fully happy!

Thank you, Gurumayi, for your generous teachings and the blessings they bring into my life.
