Ik voel me dankbaar dat ik de wijsheden heb doorgekregen van Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse rinpoche die ik beschouw als mijn root meditatie leraar. Sri K Pattabi Jois is the lijnhouder van Astanga Yoga. Zij hebben daarmee mijn leven voorgoed veranderd. De verdieping kwam ook door de teachings van Rupert Spira en Reinoud Eleveld die een rijkdom aan schatten hebben overgedragen. Ook beschouw ik Petri Räisänen, Paul Dallaghan, Satya & Sahaj als dierbare leraren.

“Before we begin, homage to the guru. And when we say homage, we are not just talking about bowing down, but some sense of surrender. It is not mere respect, but it is total surrender. We do this surrender because we are aware of the downfall of ego-clinging. So therefore total surrender to the guru.”
Dzongsar Khyentse Jamyang Rinpoche

“Give your attention to the experience of seeing, rather than of the object seen and you will find yourself everywhere” Rupert Spira

“There are three types of disease: body disease, mind disease, and nervous system disease. When the mind is diseased, the whole body is diseased. The yoga scriptures say “Manayeva manu ā ā kara a bandha mok ayo (this verse may be transliterated incorrectly),” the mind is the cause of both bondage and liberation. If the mind is sick and sad, the whole body gets sick, and all is finished. So first you must give medicine to the mind. Mind medicine: that is yoga.”
Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
