Ishvara Pranidhana Va
Patanjali Yoga Sutra 1.23
From a special process of devotion and letting go into the creative source from which we emerged (ishvara pranidhana), the coming of samadhi is imminent.
(ishvara pranidhana va)
“Worship does not mean offering flowers.
It means offering your heart
To the vast mystery
Of the universe.
It means letting your heart pulse
With the life of the universe
Without thought and without reservation.
It means being so in love
That you are
Willing to dissolve
And be recreated in every moment.”
Excerpt from the Radiance Sutras Lorin Roche
Isvara Pranidhana – Surrender to the divine. Release your fears and be filled with grace – accepting all that comes as part of a divine conspiracy to promote your highest good. Let go of the things you may be holding on to. Things that no longer serve your higher self. Let every moment, every action be filled with devotion. Let your asana be an offering. Expand your heart and open your mind. Let your consciousness merge with the universe, understand and feel your connectedness. To everything. Separateness is an illusion. Recognize your divine nature and surrender completely. Let go. You are one, you are whole, you are love.
