** I am in no form or shape an expert nor I know everything about the given subject.
I create and share from my experience and opinion from what I have learned about the culture and tradition by being born and brought up in India. And in my continued learnings through books and story telling from my other teachers
** Each god, goddesses and ‘Hindu’ festivals has multiple stories and interpretations based on which part of the country you learn from
** My session will have stories that I connect most and get the best interpretation for my ‘yoga lifestyle’
** Sanskrit language is not a spoken language thus I am not an expert in the ‘right pronunciation.
(I can read and write the language but not necessarily understand everything)
** I was not born and raised as Hindu but I grew up living around it. My love for religions has intrigued me to learn and respect more from a cultural perspective - for my own spiritual journey. My approach is of deep respect, gratitude and curiosity.
*** I seek humility, guidance and forgiveness in my effort of learning and sharing this ancient wisdom
Thank you for your kindness and understanding
Much love and light
