Swami Saradananda's blog

Welcome to my new blog

Loving greetings from London - and welcome to my blog

The past few months have been unusual ones for me. I've stayed put in London for 3 1/2 month - not counting the few days in Scotland and York. This is a bit of a record for me - my Flying Mountain seems to have come to rest for a while.

Mountains usually represent stability, immovablity and security. But, Indian legend has it that in ancient times all mountains had wings and used to zip around the earth - often bumping into each other and causing massive overhead traffic pile-ups. Eventually, the ancient rishis got tired of the noise they were making and decided to bring them down to earth by cutting off their wings. Only one mountain escaped the cull as it was bathing in a lake. I like to think that (metaphoric) mountain is the one I use to bring the Himalyan traditions of yoga to the modern world.

This is my first blog post on my newly formatted website. In addition to this blog, I also write for Elephant Journal and Watkins Publishing - and on blogspot
