November 2013
Issue: #13

In India and throughout the world, the new moon in November signaled in the New Year celebrated as Deepavali (or Diwali).   As we approach the western New Year, a series of holy days will be observed.  In whatever form you honor the Light, may it also serve as a time for meditation.   Looking at the mind through regular self reflection is an on-going sadhana.    It serves like a flashlight shining in the mind removing unnecessary thought patterns and planting thoughts of choice.   Using the auspicious energy days to accentuate this inner journey is proclaimed by the wise to be beneficial due to the energy created through increased satsanga and the planets support.  Whether you celebrate holy days or holidays, may the heightened energy be used to gain more jnana (wisdom) to reflect your universal spirit.

Included in the 18-day retreat in India this December will be the Vedic holy day of Datta Jayanti, the Winter Solstice, and the Vedic birthday of TriYoga.  If you wish to visit Mysore, the capital of yoga in India, then this is the time.   The locations are rotated to include various parts of India.

 Message from Yogini Kaliji


We are called 'humankind'.   

Have we ever wondered what 'kind' refers to 

at the end of human?

It seems the principle of compassion is built into the word referring to humans as kind 

or humans are to be kind. 


Compassion is a vague word at times.   We feel compassion in reference to a particular topic,  

though at times it lacks in being all-encompassing.   


We often speak of compassion for animals, ecology, and health; yet, are we following an ahimsa diet that supports this?     

We speak of compassion,

but do we have compassionate thoughts? 


We seek compassion from others, but do we show compassion in our actions?     


Compassion is our natural state. 

When the mind is calm, we are kind.   

When we are kind, our mind becomes calm.    

Humans, let us awaken to our highest potential.   

 'Be Kind ~ Be Calm;  Be Calm ~ Be Kind'.  


 Jai Humankind!
