The yogaschool is called Sai Mithra and is located in the centre of Amsterdam.
Agastya is seated beneath a mountain. Just at his right you see streams of water, these represent the fluids of the Kundalini snaking up the mountain.
I can't tell you the whole procedure, but we were all invited to tell each other our intentions. My intention is to keep on following my spiritual path and to share my experiences with others.The ceremony ended with the Asatoma mantra sung by Sai Baba. A very moving and powerful mantra. The mantra means: from untruth to truth, from darkness to light, from death to immortality.
Sai Mithra teaches transformative yoga, which means that you choose that path for personal transformation. According to Patanjali it is the most difficult path to follow. Having a learning attitude in life means dealing with struggles, experiencing them and being thankful for them, because they bring you closer to who you really are. They cleanse you and make you lighter. But oh boy, it isn't always easy. I know from my own experiences.
