Sat-sangatve nissangattvam, nissangatve nirmohatvam, nirmohatve niscala-tattvam, nishcala-tattve jivanmuktih, bhaja govindam bhaja govindam, bhaja govindam mudha-mate.
Good and virtuous company gives rise to non-attachment. From non-attachment comes freedom of delusion. With freedom from delusion, one feels the changeless reality. Experiencing that changeless reality, one attains liberation in this life. I-AM is the ocean of awareness. Realizing this, one feels, “I am not the body and mind, although I have a body and mind.” Realize Govinda, realize Govinda, realize Govinda in your heart, O wise one!
—Translation by Shri Brahamananda Sarasvati
Much of our time is spent in a virtual world of computers, phones and many other automated transactions. We are always choosing how to spend our time, which shapes our lives. The power of coming together, of sharing ideas, insights and practicing asana lends one to become more receptive. As we undertake this journey, we may do so together and thus together we come to realize the vastness of our existence.
