I love all the Svaroopa® practices. So I also gratefully engage in dakshina. It’s the ancient yogic practice of financially supporting the teacher and the teachings. Please join me in expressing your gratitude for our great good fortune. Together, we honor all that flows and all that we receive from this yoga. Make your financial gift to our fundraising campaign “Body, Mind, Heart and More.”
What an apt title! The Svaroopa® Sciences divinely support each facet of my being. Asana (poses), Ujjayi pranayama (yogic breathing) and Svaroopa® Yoga Therapy heal my body. Our devotional practices, including chanting and arati (candle waving ceremony), illumine my heart. Vichara (guided self-inquiry), sutra studies and japa (mantra repetition) clear my mind.
And, as Gurudevi says, I find the most reliable practice of all is meditation. It showers Grace-filled benefits on the deepest dimensions of my being. Then I get more! I experience Self — the One Being All.
You, too, are so much more than you think you are. You are a yoga gem, a diamond glistening with the light of Consciousness. As a Svaroopi, your practices have honed and polished the facets of your being: body, mind and heart! You know how it feels to shine with this light that arises from within. You know upliftment, openness, and clarity. You know how to settle deeper into your own Self. You feel more like You.
Dakshina is not about the amount of your contribution. Dakshina is the yogic practice of giving financial resources from your Capital-S Self. All your yoga practices open an inner flow that makes you want to share. Dakshina is an organic extension of this.
