Regards to all the humanity in brokeness…

A student and good friend of mine just sent a link to an intriguing article about a Goddess from Hindu mythology named Akhilandeshvari.  In sanskrit her name means the “never not broken” goddess.  What does this mean?  Well, to me it says that even the gods and goddesses are known for their humanity.  It is like the Japanese art of wabi-sabi to find beauty in imperfection. Acceptance of the natural cycles of life, reverence in authenticity and rejection of perfection all lead us to a deeper connection with the present moment.  Life will take us through so many states of being and through the practice of yoga you will more easily be able to recognize the true you no matter where you are.

  1. Lovely. 🙂

    In Tibetan Buddhism, HH The Dalai Lama is the reincarnation of Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of Compassion. I know of Avalokiteshvara as a female form, but the Tibetans characterize him as male. Supposedly s/he manifests in both sexes. Anyway… I always appreciate the similarities of the deities in the Hindu and Buddhist traditions.
