The River of Wisdom
108 Life-Changing Reflections
The rich philosophy of yoga has been handed down from teacher to student for thousands of years, yet this wisdom is not exclusive to any one culture or religion. In The River of Wisdom, contemporary teacher Darren Main offers 108 insights, reflections and thoughts on what it means to live a more mindful life—a life rooted in the tradition of yoga.
Whether you read this book cover-to-cover or simply contemplate a random passages as part of your daily practice, The River of Wisdom is sure to inspire you and change the way you look at life both on and off the yoga mat.
The great spiritual tension between the contemplative life of the monk and spiritual activism in the world dissolves entirely with one word—namaste: the light in me bows to the light in you.
When meditation reveals the light in ourselves, we naturally want to bow to the light in all beings—to act on their behalf in reverence and devotion.
When we truly see the light in another being, our own light shines forth, dissolving the seemingly eternal ache in our hearts and the near constant struggle of the ego mind. To see the light in one being—your own light or that of another—is to win the cosmic game of hide and seek and ease the suffering of the world.
