योगश्चित्तवृत्तिनिरोधः
- Yoga is the method of seizing the modifications of the mind.
. तदा द्रष्टुः स्वरूपेऽवस्थानम् - And then the seer is able to see himself/herself in its own true nature.
.

Sage Patanjali’s 2nd and 3rd Yoga Sutra from Samadhi Pada can be understood as how the mind is constantly consumed by thoughts and the person is unable to realise it’s own true nature.
You can only see your clear reflection when the water becomes still.
As your mind moves towards thoughtlessness through deep meditation, you are then able to see your own true self like a clear reflection in the still water. .

Shakti - The Divine Feminine Energy

“Shakti” means, power or energy. The female aspect of Creation is known as Prakriti, the upholder of energy.
Also known as the Mother Goddess, Shakti is worshipped in her various manifestations by millions of people around the globe. �At SWAN we have dedicated a YogaShala to the divine feminine power with a Yantra of Shakti (The inverted triangle) which is named as “Shakti Vihar”.

The Story of Tulsi (Holy Basil) Plant:

Shankhchuda, a mighty daitya (demon) underwent terrific tapa and penance and pleased Brahma. Brahma blessed him with a boon of invincibility. Shankhachuda pleased Brahma with his penance, was granted the Vishnu-Kavacha (armour of Vishnu) and he blessed shankhachuda that as long as Vishnu-Kavacha was on his body, no one could slay him. Shankhachuda and Tulsi were soon married. He practiced the laws of dharma religiously but was also prone to commit mistakes and sins for the sake of community. Therefore, after victory over the three worlds, he drove out gods from various celestial kingdoms. To rescue the universe, Shiva challenged Shankhachuda to war. Vishnu appeared in his true form and urged Tulsi to abandon her earthly body and return to his celestial abode. In her anger and grief, she cursed Vishnu to be turned into stone. Vishnu turned into a stone and reside on riverbank Gandaki River. People and devotees will call it a chunk of shaaligrama. Tulsi's mortal remains decayed and became the Gandaki River, while her hair transformed into the sacred Tulsi plant.

The Tulsi plant is grown in or near almost every Hindu house. A house with a Tulsi plant is sometimes considered a place of pilgrimage. The sacred groves where these herbs are grown are also known as Vrindavan (grove of Tulsi), a miniaturised Vrindavan is a raised cuboid stone or brick structure often in middle of the house's courtyard or in front of the house.

A person who waters and cares for the Tulsi daily is believed to gain moksha (salvation) and the divine grace of Vishnu, even if he does not worship it. Traditionally, the daily worship and care of the plant is the responsibility of the women of the household. Though daily worship is prescribed, Tuesdays and Fridays are considered especially sacred for Tulsi worship.

At SWAN we do Tulsi Puja in the evening and on special occasions.

The story of Shabari.

Shabari was a woman from a tribal village. She was a seeker of knowledge and wanted to know the meaning of Dharma. After days of traveling, she met Sage Matanga at the foot of the Mountain Rishyamukha and accepted him as guru, serving him with devotion. When her guru Matanga was about to die, Shabari, now an elderly lady, stated that after serving him throughout her life, she now sought to reach for herself the same "abode of peace" which Matanga reached. Thereupon, the sage said that by the virtue of her seva (service), Lord Rama shall give her darshana and asks her to wait for his arrival. Saying thus, the sage sitting in lotus posture attains Mahasamadhi. As per her guru's words, Shabari waits for the arrival of Rama.

Everyday Shabari would go out of her ashram, with the help of a walking stick and pluck berry fruits for Lord Rama. She would pluck a fruit, first taste it, and if it was sweet she would put it in her basket and discard the bitter ones. She wanted to give the good and sweet fruits to Rama.The thought never came to her that she should not taste it before it was offered to a deity. Thus collecting a few fruits, Shabari went back to the ashram and eagerly anticipated Lord Rama's arrival. Shabari is commonly used as a metaphor for an endless wait for God.

The Pranam/Prayer/Anjali Mudra is a position which means offering.

The joining together of the palms provides connection between the right and left hemispheres of the brain and represents unification. It is used as a posture of composure, of returning to one’s heart, whether you are greeting someone or saying goodbye.
PS: We always say Hari Om when we greet someone in this mudra.
