translation:

“That is fullness.  This is fullness.  From fullness all things come.  Never was there a time fullness did not exist, never will there be a time when fullness is not present. Such is the nature of Life.”

Interpretation by Osho:

 “The Upanishadic vision is that the universe is a totality, indivisible; it is an organic whole. The parts are not separate, we are all existing in a togetherness: the trees, the mountains, the people, the birds, the stars, howsoever far away they may appear – don’t be deceived by the appearance – they are all interlinked, all bridged. Even the smallest blade of grass is connected to the farthest star, and it is as significant as the greatest sun.”

“Nothing is insignificant, nothing is smaller than anything else. The part represents the whole just as the seed contains the whole.”

You can listen to a beautiful version of this mantra by Shantala here.

2014 was a wonderful year of practice and teaching. I was lucky enough to be able to guide hatha vinyasa classes on Tuesdays and Thursday mornings by the seaside in the beautiful Barcelona. I share with you some of the pictures that I gathered from the classes (see below). It was a wonderful experience filled with pleasant surprises and sunrises of all colors and magical imagery for which I am greatly thankful.

Hopefully, the summer of 2015 will be as great as last year and we will be able to come back to this perfect spot to begin our mornings with the magic of yoga practice and the special energy that comes with the sun rising from the sea.

More information about Yoga by the seaside coming up, stay tuned 😉
