In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna lays out a plan for Arjuna which begins with the instruction to “find his dharma”, or true purpose.

Later on he goes on to counsel that you are better off failing at your own dharma than succeeding at someone else’s.

 

I’ve been fascinated by the concepts of karma and dharma since childhood.  Back then these ideas were foreign, mysterious and somewhat ridiculed in the  judeo-christian neighborhood of my youth.  My own ‘dharma’  began to assert itself  then, although, of course, I did not see it at the time.  Hindsight brings amazing clarity at times.

Belief in reincarnation is fundamental in understanding the wheel of dharma and that is a hurdle for some.  Many in our society live their lives according to a linear model of time, with very well defined beginnings and endings.  Reincarnation is not compatable with linear thinking.   Those who study dharma tend to measure and experience time cyclically which creates a very different mentality.   Reincarnation is the vehicle by which the scales become balanced.

In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna lays out a four point plan for the warrior, Arjuna, which begins with the instruction to “discover his dharma” .  Once found, it is our duty to do our dharma in order to evolve into a higher state of being.  But, first, we must  remove the karmic obstructions so to create fertile ground for our dharma to manifest.

One’s natal horoscope can answer many questions surrounding our soul’s purpose (dharma) and when and where and how to manifest it. The lunar nodes symbolize the karmic path we’re on in this current lifetime, as well as the dharmic task we’ve been assigned.  Our soul’s purpose will be fulfilled, regardless of whether or not we are conscious of what it is. The advantage to knowing your purpose is nothing less than evolutionary growth for your soul.

 

Anyway, this subject matter fascinates a lot of us.  With that in mind, I invite you to attend this upcoming class.

SUNDAY, OCT 8 12 – 4PM, The Purpose of Purpose – A Workshop

Go here to return to The Teacher’s Journal…my blog.

Beginning 11/23 –   11/30, 2010 the North Node of the Moon (Rahu in Jyotish) will be in a conjunction with Pluto at  4 degrees of Capricorn.

(Pluto is not recognized in classical vedic astrology.)

For those of you who are comfortable with the concept of reincarnation and the wheel of karma this time period is  an important one.  Karmic forces are in control.  Not us. Period. Om shanti, peace.

The lunar nodes can be interpreted in a variety of ways.  One perspective is to see them as significators for your personal relationships.   The north node might represent those who take you forward into uncharted territory.  The south node, on the other hand, might represent those in your life who are less challenging and more comfortable to have around.    A piece of data like that can make all the difference between the struggle and/or the peace.

Another way to look at the lunar nodes, in a more spiritual way perhaps, would be to see the south node as the karma you face from your past lives.  The north node would be more representative of the dharma, or purpose of this life…thereby creating new karma for your future lives.   Do you see the wheel turning?

When we add the influence of Pluto to the lunar nodes the impact becomes Absolutely Transformational.

Yoga Therapists:  Deep Process experiences can be both agitating and therapeutic during this time.  Remember to be mindful of your own boundaries and deep issues and do not project your stuff onto your students. Om shanti.
