thunderbolt pose-Vajrasana

Thunderbolt pose - This simple kneeling position is often adopted by Muslims and Buddists for prayer and meditation. as it encourages a sense of centering and steadiness. In yoga it is known as vajrasana ( thunderbolt Pose ) and is considered to stimulate the energy channel vajra nadi , which redirects base energy to the brain and encourages spiritual awareness. Kneel with the tops of your feet on the floor , sit back on your heels, and rest your palms lightly on your knees. You may need to place a folded blanket between your buttocks and heels and or/ under your ankles for comfort. feel how sitting with a straight, alert spine opens up space for energy to flow freely.

*** This painting is by Arifatul Haziyah , a primary six students from Reno Anggerek desa School. i got it during an Art Exhibition. i am not sure if he painted a classic yoga asana but it looks to me, it is a Thunderbolt pose.

Live in the moment - No Defend

No defend - When we are criticised , we naturally want to justify ourselves, but this is not always necessary , and often it does more harm than good. You do not need to explain yourself to people who do not matter to you. And if you have been following good principles of thought anf conduct, you can rest easy , even when people might have done things differently.

Live in the moment - Breakout

Breakout - ellen Langer , the first female psychologist tenured at Harvard, summarized the benefits of eliminating habit : " the continuous creation  of new categories , openness to new information , and an implicit awareness of more than one perspective." Habit-bound souls may find the prospect of such openness dizzying and daunting. Break your bonds and discover how exhilarating life can be.

Live in the moment - Love Karma

Love Karma -Classifying your relationship wiht people can be unnecessarily limiting : after all , the most positive view of love is of a generous outpouring from the heart that makes no distinctions between different levels of familiarity , acquaintance , or deservedness. So avoid the trap of pitching your actions toward others according to a rigorous , self-imposed social code. Instead , trust your instinct. Your loved ones will not suffer if you show love to humanity as a whole.

Live in the moment - Gaze at a flame

Gaze at a flame - Meditating on a candle , known as trataka in yoga , gives the mind a precise point of focus. Light a candle and place it safely in front of you, at eye level. Focus steadily on the flame , blinking as little as possible. Try to empty your mind of everything except the flame. If your mind wanders , gently bring your attention back to its object.

Live in the moment - Stand your ground

Stand your ground - Coming to terms with reality involves stripping ourselves of comforting delusions. Many people who try to confront life's difficult truths get scared and fail in the attempt. You won't gain self-knowledge without drawing upon your reserves of strength and courage.  Don't run awau: the rewards of standing your ground will be riches beyond measure - true happiness , true peace , true love.

Live in the moment - Silent music

Silent music - "Talking is like playing on the harp; there is as much in laying the hands on the strings to stop their vibration as in twanging them to bring out their music."

A nice & welcoming addition

Healing setting with full set of bowls
experimetal and practice with a intuitve sense
taste and absorb the quality of the sound
out of seven bowls , this one is my favorite. i love the imprints

view of the bell , the full scripts of chant is crafted from inside is a surprise! 

unsual Buddha face art.
The friendly Nepaliese people and the religious & cultural rich ambience made the second time visit enjoyable, even after a gap of ten years,everything seems familiar and unchanged. i felt " at home"
it was such a wonderful journey this time  as i received an invaluable gift - ancient Himalaya wisdom and secrets - the tibetan singing bowl. It was always exciting to learn something new and i found this one was extraordinary.

My yoga peer , Nina recommended me to study and learn with her master - Shree Krishnan Shahi, like most of Nepaliese people , simply , friendly and warmth who lives in Kathmandu Valley's most outstanding landmark - Swoyambhu Stupa for more 2 decades and about the same span of durations ,he has been handing down this ancient secrets healing techniques from his god grandfather, a tibetan Lama.

The most interesting part of the course is to get " the intuitive sensitivity " connected with a set of seven bowls which have the interconnection with the seven energy centers ( The chakra ). Master Shree's religion is strongly influenced by tibetan buddism and his teachings stress the importance of building up positive karmic energy and intuition in working with the bowls,It was exciting to explore and experience different qualities of bowl - hand hammered and manaufactured made. By far , The hand hammered bowls give the better quality of sound and they are made of at least five different composites - mercury , brass , copper , thin and iron. They are plain in design and some are imprinted with sacred symbols and chants.

The bowls are truly a divine gift of a sound as each bowl emits heavenly soothing sound that i was loving it with just one strike on it. The sound was very different i heard from the recorded CD or Youtube. You would feel a deep and profound vibration especially when the bowls are placed in a " healing setting "near to the body. The harmonic frequency of sound become more powerful , cleansing ,purifyinig and healing. 

I have been incorporating with this lovely sound relaxation into some of the restorative yoga sessions and the responses are positive and encouraging. Most of them find time passes so quickly without realizing as well as it enhances their level of relaxation. what i find the sound can bring much needed a wordless prayer for peace and calm. It is such a welcoming addition to the yoga session.

Holy prayer in process

more than 300 steps , quite a challenging climb up to Swayambhu Stupa
There are many good reasons and attractions to come and visit Nepal - Kathmandu. Trekking is NO.1 on what-to-do list in most of tourists' itineraries; the magnificent Mt.Everest , the tallest mountain in the world and other eight mountains amongst top 10 world-rank across the country offer both the challengeing trek and the gentle "tea-house" trek. It is also fascinating to take a historical & cultural tour as there are many impressive world heritage sites - bhaptapur city , world biggest Stupa - Boundha Stupa ,Swoyambhu Stupa,  Durba Square , Patna Square and to name a few. These century-old sites are like a living museum as they are well-preserved. you would admire the beauty of the unique woodcraft & cobble stonework architect, this is also how Kathmandu's name is derived from. Shops and Venders are everywhere espeically at the thamel area where mostly budget travellers / backpackers gather selling all kind of himalaya handicraft , jewelry and so forth. it promises a satisfying hunt.  Religions are diversify in this country.  Hinduisum and Buddism are quite commonly practiced.  Visiting Lumbini - a small town for buddism is a significant pigrimage as it is the birth place of the lord Buddha.  Anything you like to know about Tibetan Buddism , Tangka Art & culture you could almost get as many exile tibetans reside here. ten years ago ( 2001 ) , almost the same reasons brought me but this second visit this year 2012 was "the sacred sound "brought me here.

Live in the moment - Trust others

Trust Others - We are often told to " look out for number one" but living inside a shell of caution and safety could become very lonely. Open your heart and trust others. When someone pays you a compliment or says' i love you," sense the good intention behind the statement , and repay it gratefully.

Balacing Salabhasana -the Locust

Practising this hatha classical pose - Salabhasana ( The locust ) with a stool adds a bit challenge in balance. The key is right the midsection , similarly the practice on the floor. but this version works less muscular energy demand to lift the body away from the gravity. i modify it from a simple Kong Fu work-out. The primary benefit of this pose helps strengthening the back and the spine. It also gives a good " hint" how the midsection is engaged in the forearm balancing pose - Pincha Mayurasana.

Live in the moment - Big Bang

Big Bang -the original of the universe , according to cosmological science , was an outpouring of energy 13.7 billion years ago, out of a miniscule concentration of infinite temperature and infinite density. We can no more grasp this reality than an ant can memorize the Bible: our destiny is to be forever in awe of the ineffable - yet to find transcendence through love and faith.

He starts his practice since 2007.  It is such a rewarding Sundays when you see how much he has progressed and how persistent he is!! at least  a " perk" to continue doing my job the best.
