Daniele and Panditji

Article written by Daniele Belloni (seen above with Panditji, translating into Italian)

Last year Panditji gave his first ever Italian lecture and addressed the fundamentals of Yoga. This included  the guru principle and the guru-disciple relationship along the spiritual path of yoga. Everybody was so pleased to hear about Panditji's own experiences within the guru lineage and a wealth of inspiring stories about Gurudeva Swami Rama of The Himalayas and the beloved teacher Swami Veda Bharati.

This year at the end of March Pandit Dabral reached Milan, Italy, for a second seminar to be held within the YMT – Yoga and Meditation Training – program.  He gave a seminar about “Mudras and Mantras in the Solar Science”, so that the attendees had the chance to take a dive into a very particular aspect of the yogic discipline traditionally known as Surya-vijnana.

Panditji introduced the theme by relating the solar science to the teachings of a living tradition stating every field of yoga you deal with has to be approached through an initiatory process which can be formal or informal, but never devoid of the presence of a living teacher. The science of mantras played a central role in Panditji’s teachings where we taught a very effective repetition of the Gayatri-mantra. As Panditji explained, this mantra is considered to be the mahamantra par excellence and the Mother of the Vedas. We then explored the mudras to be performed along with the repetition of Gayatri-mantra, as well as some healing mudra for specific purposes.Action. Mudra. Milansuryanamaskar

On Sunday afternoons closing session, Panditji explained how the bija-mantras can be practiced along with Surya-Namaskara (the Sun Salutation). An in depth study of this asana sequence followed Panditji's introduction where everybody went through a vigorous hatha-yoga experience maintaining the mind focus on the sounds of mantras.

When leaving Panditji provided a gift for everybody: a very detailed daily schedule with asanas, pranayama, mudras and mantras designed for the seeker who wants to deepen the Solar science sadhana. Everybody were really happy and energized at the end of the seminar!  Panditji has definitely inspired people to take a step further towards a real commitment to their personal yoga practice. His engaging personality has left a mark in the hearts of the many who are waiting for his third coming to Italy in August 2011 for The Path of Fire and Light Seminar that he will conduct together with Swami Ritavan Bharati.
