Poem: by Imadeddin Nasimi (1369? - 1418)

Both worlds within my compass come, but this world cannot compass me.

An omnipresent pearl I am and both worlds cannot compass me.

 

Because in me both earth and heaven and Creation's “BE!” were found, Be silent!

For there is no commentary can encompass me.

 

Through doubt and surmise no one came to be a friend of God and Truth.

The man who honours God knows doubt and surmise cannot compass me.

 

Pay due regard to form, acknowledge content in the form, because Body and soul I am,

but soul and body cannot compass me.

 

I am both shell and pearl, the Doomsday scales, the bridge to Paradise.

With such a wealth of wares, this worldly counter cannot compass me.

 

I am “the hidden treasure” that is God. I am open eyes. I am the jewel of the mine.

No sea or mine can compass me.

 

Although I am the boundless sea, my name is Adam, I am man. I am Mount Sinai and both worlds.

This dwelling cannot compass me.

 

I am both soul and word as well. I am both world and epoch, too.

Mark this particular: this world and epoch cannot compass me.

 

I am the stars, the sky the angel, revelation come from God.

So hold your tongue and silent be! There is no tongue can compass me.

 

I am the atom, sun, four elements, five saints, dimensions six. Go seek my attributes!

But explanations cannot compass me.

 

I am the core and attribute, the flower, sugar and sweetmeat. I am Assignment Night, the Eve.

No tight-shut lips can compass me.

 

I am the burning bush. I am the rock that rose into the sky. Observe this tongue of flame.

There is no tongue of flame can compass me.

Bihar School Of Yoga contribution to the world
“Contribution of the Satyananda Tradition to Yoga Sri Swamiji and the Satyananda tradition have made a major contribution to yoga and sannyasa. In order to systematize the practices of yoga it was necessary to create a sequential progression in the structure of yoga, and that is what Sri Swamiji has achieved. To Sri Swamiji goes the credit for the combinations of techniques and presentation of the pawanmuktasana series, parts one (anti-rheumatic), two (anti-gastric) and three (shakti bandhas). He also incorporated components of tantric nyasa into the yogic system in the form of yoga nidra. The sequence in which the practices of pranayama are taught today by the majority of yogic schools was

Psychospacial Meditation
Q: I have been mediating since 14 now I am 20 initially I felt quite calm any detached but slowly I became  irritated and depressed sort of. Should I stop meditation and yoga? A: The irritation/depression is likely to be frustration with your life. You might like to think about what you want out of your life and go after it systematically. A good place to start is a vision board and new experiences and training. Meditation and yoga just reveals what is there, it doesn't create the difficult emotions, it just allows them time/space to rise up and inform our lives. ——— If one focuses the Mind’s-Eye in a directional spacial orientation: 1.
