Samyama Happened.

My heart swells in gratitude for the universe for Samyama happened.
How close did I get there? How close did i miss it? i care not.
My being cannot comprehend this taste of liberation. Words are too simple to express this joy.
Crap happened in my backyard. No, in my living room.
Yet seemed so far away.
Crap awaits me when i get back to my world. Seems so close. Seems so frightening.
Yet i dance in joy.
Yet i talk so happily to my buddies like a frenzied monkey just let out of a cage. A monkey that has been in a bondage for too long a time and which has tasted the free fall of the wilderness. Had the monkey managed to come of the cage? I don't know. I don't care. But at least i know it can happen.
My body is acting like a suddenly subdued monster. That love from an inexplicable space seems to have tricked the hell of this vehicle.
My mind is acting like it has been suddenly proved like an insufferable idiot. Yet it seems to bask in its own gentle destruction.
My body subdued, my mind numbed, yet something still reigned supreme.
Oh what can i say? Oh what can i say?
Just to be here, i am ready to melt away.
I cannot handle it alone, that divine glance.
Come join this simpleton in this insane dance.

@Prasanna: It doesn't take two to make a tango. Samyama IS a festival. :-)

Sridar,
Please refer http://ishafoundation.org/schedule/default.asp?id=1&pageFrom=ScheduleSearch&drpCountry=India&drpProgram=0. I am sure there will be isha yoga classes in B'Lore in the distant future. You can call me @9849594327 in case you have any questions.

Anto,

Fortunately, I can relate to what you've written.

I am so very happy for you. I also hope your career awaits you once you return ;)

Another thing I wanted to mention was about your eloquence. You seem to have a way of putting seemingly difficult things easily into words. Maybe you should try your hand at story-writing or poetry-writing.

Saw your comments! If you are creating heaven for 364 days it doesnt mean that you have liberty to create a hell for a day. Velliyangiri is many many years old and your rocking music that doesnt have anything with spirituality is a nonsense. Brainwashed by Jaggi for seven or thirteen days!LOL!

Hi, Can anyone who has done Samyama help? I am able to sit in arthasiddhasana comfortably for 40 mins. But the manual says I should sit for 1.5 hrs atleast. Although I am planning to improve in the next 45 days , would it be possible to cope up even if I am not able to cross the 40 min barrier?
