Lately I have been doing gentle hatha yoga routines. I find hatha soothing as it’s gentle poses relieve stress on the joints and hips which bother me especially during the cold when I am basically doing indoor practice. Winter is also the best time to dig into your studies deeper. I’ve been getting requests to post more videos of myself teaching so you may see a few extra posts.I hope that everyone is gliding through winter and remember to ward off the “blues” you must include ayurvedic principles in your diet.
Onward we go with our alphabet soup (ya that sounds good right now so I imagine I have your attention).
So going through the A’s as shared with us by friends at Spirit Voyage we have Aad Pooran Madh Pooran
Aad Pooran Madh Pooran Ant Pooran Paramaysureh
Source: Siri Guru Granth Sahib
Author: Guru Arjun Dev Ji
Aad is sometimes taken to mean the beginning. It actually means more like the primal, something that existed before the beginning, beyond and predating anything. This concept is very hard to translate into English. Pooran means complete, needs nothing else to complete it. In the beginning, God was complete truth. Madh pooran, in the middle, God is completely whole, completely true, all pervading. Ant Pooran, in the end God will be all pervading. Parmaysureh. Why? Because he is parmaysureh. He is the highest of high, highest of the world. This is a lot like Guru Nanak Dev ji’s words at the beginning of Japji Sahib. Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach, Hai Bhee Sach. Naanak Hosee Bhee Sach.
