An ordinary thursday


Liljekonvalje - the Pig - went out today to spread the spoonrevolution. He went to the streets...



...and he went to the parks. And he distributed many cooking books and manifestos!



Later we went to a forest lake (not so) nearby.



On the way we found a tree with some far out flowers (magnolia)





How can one be/remain an atheist when seeing and smelling this flower?



Finally we reached the lake



Again - how can one be/remain an atheist when seeing this sky? Mother Nature is not only whispering about the creator, she is putting it in picture!



Shyamananda told a very interesting story...



...that he liked very much ...



... and the others too.



Charming :)

Creating new samskaras*
Skapar nya samskaras*


Sunshine should be taken care of
Solsken måste man ta vara på

*samskaras:
ENG: samskaras means the impressions in the mind that your thoughts are flowing in (as riverbeds). Everyone have their own special charactaristics of their samskaras according to his or her previous actions and experiences. We should dig new samskaras that flows in a spiritual direction instead of the temporary, this we do by constant practice of chanting and listening to the living self evident wisdom of Vedanta.

*samskaras:
SV: samskaras syftar till de intryck i sinnet som våra tankar flyter i (som flodbäddar). Allas samskaras har sina egna speciella särdrag beroende på våra tidigare handlingar och upplevelser. Vi bör gräva nya samskaras som riktas mot det transcendentala istället för det temporära, och detta gör vi genom att regelbundet chanta mahamantrat och genom att lyssna till Vedantas självlysande levande visdom.

Marijuana



ENG: Gurudev speaks here about a curse that some souls have to drag along for the rest of their lives. The curse of Marijuana will sit upon you like a ghost always arguing for its innocence and necessity. Let this ghostbusting class scare that ghost away! :D

SV: Gurudeva talar i detta klipp om en förbannelse som vissa själar dras med ofta hela livet; Marijuanaspöket. Ett spöker som kommer sitta på dina axlar och alltid argumentera för sin oskyldighet och nödvändighet. Låt denna ghostbusting klass skrämma bort detta spöke! :D

At the new place in Berlin a joyful dance manifested :)


Magic morning talk before initiation. Bhaktin Nena and Bhaktin Irina decided to accept initiation into our Yoga tradition.


Suryadev (The sun god) blessed the initiation


Bhaktin Irina receiving her japa (chanting beads) and new name from Gurumaharaj: Tulasi Maharani dd! Haribol!


The holy Japa, chanted on by Gurumaharaj...


The magic moment of change, where Krishna embraces someone and takes her within his special personal care and attention...


And the new name of Bhaktin Nena is: Srimati dd!
