Spiritual Upliftment #1

by Swami Nirmalananda & Vidyadevi Stillman

There are so many wonderful strategies for managing money, successful relationships, improving your health, etc.  You do these things to attain happiness by improving your life.  Yoga also improves your life and makes you happy, though yoga’s true goal is spiritual upliftment.  The ancient teachings speed you toward attaining the ultimate – the knowing of your own inherent Divinity.  Yoga calls this your “Self”.

“The ocean of immortality within your heart … is your own Self.”
Swami Nirmalananda & Vidyadevi

“In everyday conversations, when you use the word “heart,” you are usually talking about love and emotions. This means that the heart is a very important part of life!
Yet the word ‘heart’ also has a broader meaning …”

Dear Divine Beings,

Some quotes for you from the contemplation article:

1302 It All Begins at Your Tailbone

(click on above link to read full article)

by Swami Nirmalananda and Vidyadevi

“Svaroopa® yoga sequences your spinal release by beginning at your tailbone.”

“After your tailbone release, you continue and carry your core release into your sacrum; through your waist area; into the vertebrae through your rib cage, shoulders and neck – so your whole spine decompresses.”

“Why do we always begin the core opening at your tailbone?                                                                                                                         It’s because this is where all your tensions begin.”

“Why does the tension start at your tailbone?                                                                                                                                                                     It’s instinctual.”


“…the mystery of the body-mind relationship…

The physical change is also an emotional change.”


“When you experience fear, your tailbone tucks under – just like a scared little puppy dog.”

“Your tailbone tucks under whenever you experience any type of fear:  anxiety, nervousness, worry, resistance, impatience, frustration etc..”

“Every time you do a tailbone pose, you experience freedom from fear.”

“Though fear has been extensively researched, bliss lacks such a thorough exploration.   You are the scientist who will make the greatest discoveries!”

“Every time you release your tailbone, you are physically aligning yourself with Grace, so your life is aligned with Grace and your being is aligned with Grace.”

“Grace is your own Divine Self reaching for you, within you.”

“Through Grace, transcendental consciousness emerges within, so the delight of your own Self is experienced as constant in the midst of life.”  Shiva Sutras 1.7

“Svaroopa yoga is the yoga of Grace.”

“You truly can live a Grace-filled life.”




“Core opening gives a lift to your spine and to your life.”

Swami Nirmalananda
