Awaken

My last blog post reminded me of Nischala Joy Devi’s translation of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra 1.33. This is by far one of my most favorite Sutras, but it’s Devi’s translation that has clicked with me.  It reads:

Kindness to those who are happy

Compassion for those who are less fortunate

Honor for those who embody noble qualities

Equanimity to those whose actions oppose your values

I had the privilege of attending a two-day Yoga Sutra workshop with her in the Fall at Beloved Yoga in Great Falls, VA (about 30 minutes west of Washington, DC).  If you aren’t familiar with Devi’s interpretation of the Yoga Sutras, put “The Secret Power of Yoga” on your reading list for 2010.  Awaken your practice, attitude and life!
