"There are many people who get bored with their practice while in Mysore because they miss all the "tricks" they normally throw in or are asked to practice what they consider to be "boring" Primary Series. But, going to Mysore is something special beyond the physical. You do have surrender to the depth and power of the practice and stay long enough to get past your boredom, irritation, uncertainty and whatever else comes up. Even if you open your heart and mind to a deeply transformative experience somewhere else it will never be the same as what you experience if you open your heart and mind to a deeply transformative experience in Mysore. There is an energy about the shala there, the city, the history and of course, Guruji and now Sharath as a teacher that is not replicable anywhere else. It is the magic of Mysore."
I don't have too much to add to what she says here, except to say that it is quite timely, given all the recent conversations about how the atmosphere in Mysore today is different now that Guruji is no longer there. Well, maybe it's not so different, after all; the person may no longer be around, but the spirit and the energy remains. Namaste.
