“Spirituality cannot be taught. It is passed from one person to another – like a contagious virus. It sticks.”
I remembered this phrase from Shakti Parwha Kaur Khalsa, during the last White Tantric Yoga festival organised in Madrid.
White Tantric Yoga is a whole day of meditation, involving meditations of half an hour to an hour, from 8.00am to 7.00pm (with pauses of 10 minutes between each meditation cycle).
It is very intense and demanding, as you can imagine. The whole day is spent in easy yoga pose with specific mudras (hand positions). You finish the day with a lot of physical discomfort. However, it is also an extremely powerful experience. In fact, it is said that White Tantric Yoga is equivalent to various years worth of meditation practice.
This year, Tantric was led by one of the oldest students of Yogi Bhajan, and was a great opportunity to truly feel her presence throughout the day. To observe her strength, joy, compassion, unconditional love, her smile, her wisdom and her humility. To feel firsthand the subtle balance between masculine and feminine energy, that allows to face life with grace and confidence.
That is why being in the presence of Teachers is so vital. It is in itself, a lesson.
And for this reason in any Kundalini Yoga class, we always begin by singing the Adi Mantra “Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo”, in order to connect ourselves to the golden chain of Kundalini Yoga Masters, and therefore practice surrounded by their subtle but essential energy.
Because their subtle energy is our most important guide.
