wednesday wisdom: confluence + fellowship

Meet together, talk together, let your minds apprehend alike; in like manner as the gods concurring accepted their portion of the worship.

Common be the prayer of these assembled, common be the acquirement, common the purpose, associated be the desire. I repeat for you a common prayer, I offer for you with a common oblation.

Common by your intention, common be the wishes of your heart, common be your thoughts, so that there be union among you.

The final mantras from the Rig Veda, an ancient Vedic text of Sanskrit hymns. These verses are borrowed from Ashtanga Yoga New York’s blog post about the recent Ashtangi Confluence in San Diego, a weekend gathering of yoga teachers who met to discuss the future of yoga. A hot topic, made especially relevant in the wake of current controversies.
