Wishing you a joy filled Summer Solstice. Today is the beautiful solstice, where we celebrate the longest day of sunlight. The twilight hours—morning and evening—call us to make the journey back to our inner selves. Take the time today to notice the rising and setting sun. Feel the essence of her warmth and rays of light by chanting the beautiful mantra – Gayatri (Guy-ah-tree).
Invite the Gayatri into your Sun Salutation practice today. This method of honoring the sun was taught to me by my master teachers Joseph and Lilian Le Page, and taught to my students by me, and their students by them. Invite the twelve words to flow to the twelve classical steps of the Surya Namaskar.
OM, bhur, bhuvah, swaha, tat, savitur, varenyaum
bhargo, devasya, dimahi, dhyo, yo nah, prachodayat
Translation by Joseph Le Page:
Om, body mind and spirit
That Sun God
That we venerate
May the divine light which we meditate upon
Inspire our vision and energy
