Today there was a photo shoot for a magazine called Premier Brands. It is about, well .. premier brands!!! The interviewer as usual asked me how I came into this path and I gave my standard answer. I was a student and played football, did theatre, was the secretary of the hostel etc. etc. and yet I found life incomplete. Then when I did the Art of Living and my football improved, my theatre improved, my life improved! and that’s when I decided to go deeper and study how yoga works.
Since then I have been studying and sharing my knowledge with as many people as I can. All the time there was this photographer who kept clicking and at the end he showed me the pics. They were just amazing!! He said he would put them on a cd and send it to me.
Then we went out and started clicking in the snow. I was showing off as usual, in just my kurta and pyjama. I posed out in the snow among the trees. Though I didn’t see the pics I am sure they must be amazing. He asked me to pick up some snow and throw it. I started doing it and in a little while my hands were frozen. That’s when I headed back into the house. Amazingly only the hands were frozen, even in -15 I think. The body was just not affected. Tato dvandvan abhighatau- the practice of asana takes you beyond the opposites. It is amazing to see that the practices guruji has given to us can give so much strength.
