Inspiration from the chandogya upanishad


“As a tethered bird flies this way and that,

And comes to rest at last on its own perch,

So the mind, tired of wandering about…

Settles down at last in the Self” (VI.8.2).

With these words a father explains the subtle mind to his son, Shvetaketu.  I find that the organic phrases found within the Chandogya Upanishad complement the vibrant character of the rainforest herself.

The image above comes from – I had the great fortune of staying at this rainforest refuge several years ago, and highly recommend it to all nature sightseers

From February 22nd through the 29th, Yoga Vermont will be hosting David Williams in Costa Rica.  I preemptively await the return of all my snowbird friends.
