During the Yoga Festival of 2016 we will focus on one of the five sutras of the Aquarian Age as given by Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga and White Tantric Yoga: “Understand through compassion or you will misunderstand the times.” Our heart as a physical organ will be exercised by doing Kundalini Yoga. But beyond that, yoga builds up the heart as an electromagnetic point of radiance in contact with others. It enables us to relate with intuitive understanding and compassion. Building this energy of the heart is one of the most important aspects of Kundalini Yoga. In the words of Yogi Bhajan:
“How many times have you listened to your heart? How many times have you listened to the cry of the heart of the whole wilderness of people? How many times have you gone out and listened to the prayer, the heartfelt prayer, of those who are ugly, who are unseen? How many of you have done anything, risked yourself for any reason, which is real, which is of the unknown?”
This is the fourth time we dedicate a festival to one of the Sutras.
