Revitalizing your chakras – Sun Salutations

Surya Namaskars Vitalize one’s Chakras

How many rounds do you do?

Oh! and as many people asked, what is the best time to do Surya Namaskars?
Well, the best time is at Dawn when the Sun rises, but that doesn’t mean that you cannot do it in the evenings.

Start at a suitable time, get your body going, and then move to a morning time.. Howzat!

A lot of people have posted to write something about steps and collective information here 🙂
I found some useful information on the web, which I am consolidating here:

Surya Namaskara (IPA: [su:rjɐ nɐmɐskɐ:rɐ]; Sanskrit: सूर्य नमस्कार; IAST: Sūrya Namaskāra) also known in English as Sun Salutation (lit. “salute to the sun”) is a common sequence of asanas. Its origins lie in a worship of Surya, the Hindu solar deity. This sequence of movements and asanas can be practised on varying levels of awareness, ranging from that of physical exercise in various styles, to a complete sadhana which incorporates asana, pranayama, mantra and chakra meditation. It is often the beginning vinyasa within a longer yoga series. Sūrya Namaskāra may also refer to other styles of “Salutations to the Sun”.

Merry Christmas!!

Unconditionally creation loves you, supports you and holds you 
in its arms because it is all innocence. 
This entire creation is innocence. When you realize this, 
when you become innocent, you can be one with this kingdom.

The Matrix is Everywhere

Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere, it is all around us, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your
 taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

Neo: What truth?

Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage… born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind.
