It's never really done much for me.
But through the process of my teacher training, as I learn more about the history of yoga and the spirituality of the practice, I see myself becoming more connected to these aspects. The oms are taking on more meaning. The chanting doesn't seem so, well, silly.
This week we've learned a new chant, beyond the basic om. And I'm kind of in love with it.
May all beings everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.
I just love this. I love the meaning, I love the flow of the chant, and I love the way I feel when my class is singing it together.
New tattoo inspiration, perhaps...?
