Podcast – Practice – Buddha smiles through us

Buddha Smiles as we practice the instructions from the Yoga Sutras 

This practice merges the instruction from Yoga Sutra 1:33 and the Buddhist Practice that both point to a Loving Kind way of being and acting. 

  • Looking to sutra 2:46 Stirum and Sukham and the Buddhist slogan “Strong back, soft front” 
  • Then directing your attention to 2:47 Loosening your effort while meditating on something specific becoming more effortless. Recall the work we did on Sutra 1:34-1:38 and the five areas of focus. Now by adding a “Buddha Nature Smile” we sweeten the practice with loving-kindness, compassion and wise understanding. 

As a result of practicing in this way we understand Patanjali’s Sutra 2:48. The goal is to discover the pair of opposites cease to exist and no longer have an impact. We experience the fading of separation and are aware of a new bathing into oneness, wholeness and completeness of Love.

Podcast – Practice – Tonglen

This traditional buddhist practice acknowledges and celebrates that we as Yogis are the holders of suffering and the quest for healing, freedom and peace can be a liberating one. This is a provocative practice. We will be breathing in someone else’s pain and suffering at the same time we will be working on our own issues. This shared suffering is something magical as once you find your rhythm, you will find the strength to be of service to those more vulnerable, those that are ill and/or trapped in a cycle of suffering. This practice opens us to generosity of spirit, connection to our humanity and love that we can share knowing we all have a basic goodness, a desire to be happy and not to suffer.

Triyoga Talks invites Zephyr Wildman

Triyoga has created a podcast called Triyoga Talks which has been a great addition to our community by supporting students and teachers off the mat. I contributed a bit the other day with a few words about my life, how I have interpreted the teachings of Yoga and my part as a student to use these practices to keep my life “clean” as well as how to use this to be of service to my students. I hope you enjoy and are inspired to get on your mat and apply the deeper teachings of yoga to your experience. TRIYOGA TALKS PODCAST
