Mala-asana

We were given mālā beads at our TT graduation. I'd been feeling weirdly guilty that I hadn't actually used them yet. If I don't use them, ought I give them back?! So after my usual sitting practice I used them this morning -- my first attempt at a formal 108 repetitions of a mantra! I chose something... Continue Reading →

Krishna love
