Wow final day already! I hope youโ€™re enjoying the stories as much as I am!! . Final day of #thetalesofyoga is all about Krishna: . Lord Krishna is one of the most powerful incarnations. He is viewed as a hero and leader but also as a teacher and a friend. Krishna is said to be the embodiment of love and divine joy and destroyer of all pain and sins. Lora Krishna is the eighth avatar of God Vishnu. He often is depicted as having blue, blue- black, or black skin, and holding his flute. He represents mankindโ€™s aspiration to embody all that is divine. Krishna serves as the moral compass even though as a child he would engage in playful pranks ( he would steal and eat butter!! ) His mother, Yashoda, was so sick of Krishnaโ€™s mischievous behavior that she decided to tie him up with rope but the rope she had was too small, she then brought home another rope and it was too small, and a third rope was even too small! That is when she realized Krishna was quite special! After a few rounds of this game, Krishna allowed Yashoda to tie him up just so she could be happy!

ace_yogi. We are moving right along!! Day 5 of #thetalesofyoga is all about Sage

We are moving right along!! Day 5 of #thetalesofyoga is all about Sage Marichi: . Marichi was the son of Brahma, the divine creator. After Brahma created heaven and earth, he created ten sons. Marichi is one of those ten sons. His name, Marichi, when translated, means a ray of light. Mariachi symbolizes great power, wisdom, and the cosmic force of creation. Marichi was married to Kala, who gave birth to Kashyapa, later known as, โ€œLord of the Creaturesโ€. Marichiโ€™s grandson was the sun of god, Surya (Surya Namaskara later dedicated to him). One day Marichi went to the forest to collect wood and flowers and returned to his home extremely tired. He called his wife Dharmavrata, and told her that she was to wash his feet for him. Just as Dharmavrata began to wash her husbandโ€™s feet, Brahma arrived. Dharmavrata did not know what she should do, should she continue to wash her husbandโ€™s feet, or turn her attentions to Brahma, who was Marichiโ€™s father. She chose the latter and suffered the wrath of her husband. Marichi became extremely angry and put a curse on his wife, turning her into a stone. Dharmavrata was naturally upset by this, believing that she was being punished unnecessarily. As a reaction to this, Dharmavrata began many years of meditation which were noticed by Lord Visnu who, impressed by her devotion, granted her a wish. All Dharmavrata wanted was to have Marichiโ€™s curse lifted. Unfortunately, Marichi was such a powerful sage that this was impossible to do. Instead, Dharmavrata was transformed into a holy stone, which was desired by all gods. . . .

Day four of #thetale

Loving everyone goddess variations! ๐Ÿง๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ . . . Day four of #thetalesofyoga is all about Sita, The Lord Rama's Wife: Devi Sita, the divine heavenly goddess and wife of Lord Rama. She is the incarnation of Lakshmi, the wife of supreme god Vishnu. Her husband Rama is the avatar of Lord Vishnu, his seventh incarnation. One day, as she walked out on the terrace of her room to get some air, she saw Rama standing below. Their eyes met and they fell in love at first sight. King Janaka had been given a huge bow as a gift from Lord Shiva. When Sita was a small child, Lord Parashurama (an avatar of the god Vishnu) admired her playing with the gigantic bow and advised Janaka to only allow his daughter to marry a man who could lift the bow. After many failed attempts, Rama approached the task. He gracefully lifted the bow and strung it, surprising the crowd. The wedding was shortly after and Sita was blissful that she was able to marry her one true love. Sita represents the ideal wife, daughter and mother to the Hindu people, and is remembered for her fine attributes and revered for having the noblest qualities of women. Sita is the female protagonist in the Epic of Ramayana. The goddess devotedly accompanied Lord Rama when he was exiled to the forest. She was later captured, imprisoned and eventually rescued. Sita remained honorable throughout the tribulations of her life and finally escaped the cruelty of the world by returning to the arms of Mother Earth from Lord Shiva. .

The goddess Durga is an important representation of the Divine Mother, also known as โ€˜the Invincibleโ€™. She is said to protect mankind from evil and misery, and does so as the destructive force of jealousy, prejudice, hatred and ego. Durga is depicted with eight arms holding a myriad of weapons to show that she is always protecting mankind in every direction of the world. She is often seen riding a lion or tiger to represent power, will, and determination. Durga is presented as Shakti the female principle of divine energy and she is half of Shiva. She is also known for her 3 eyes- left eye represents desire, her right eye represents action, and her middle eye stands for knowledge. Goddess Durga received features from each and every god. Her face from Shiva, her ten arms from lord Vishnu, her feet from Lord Brahma and so on. They also gave her the weapons such as trident, conch, thunderbolt, sword, and spear and decked her up in warrior amour and jewels.

Day 2 of #thetale

Beautiful giant leaps over hurdles for day 1! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ . Day 2 of #thetalesofyoga is all about Lord Shiva! The lord of dance! . Shiva, known as the Destroyer and one of the holy trinities- alongside Brahma and Vishnu. He is said to protect his followers from greed, lust and anger, as well as the illusion and ignorance that stand in the way of divine enlightenment. However, he is also considered to be responsible for death, destroying in order to bring rebirth and new life. Shiva is often depicted with a serpent around his neck, which represents Kundalini, or life energy. One day, Brahma and Vishnu were both arguing about which of them was more powerful and important. Right then amidst the heated discussion, an inexplicable blazing pillar appeared in front of them, whose root and tip were not to be seen. Amazed by the pillar, both of them now wondered which could be this third entity that landed to challenge them. Brahma turned into a goose and flew up to find the top of the pillar and Vishnu turned into a boar to dig into the earth to find the roots. Both were unsuccessful in their mission. After unsuccessful attempts they both felt humbled as Lord Shiva manifesting in front of them in a form they could understand. They began to understand that Lord Shiva was far more powerful than them and he made up the third power that ruled over the universe. . .

ace_yogi. Letโ€™s kick this party off!! Day one #TheTalesofYoga  is hanumanasana o

Letโ€™s kick this party off!! Day one #TheTalesofYoga is hanumanasana or splits! ๐Ÿ’ . . Hanuman, the deity depicted as a monkey. Hanuman was the son of Vayu, the god of the wind, and Anjana, a celestial nymph. Hanuman takes shape in the form of a monkey because Anjana once angered a sage who cursed her to be born as a monkey. When the nymph begged for pardon, the sage calmed down and said that she would regain her original form after she bore a son who would win great renown. Hanuman represents the ideal devotee of god and is worshipped as a symbol of strength, perseverance and devotion. Hanuman is often called upon in times of trouble as he teaches the unlimited power within each of us when we direct all of our energies to God, specifically shown in the epic tale Ramayana. Hanuman leapt the distance of one hundred yojanas shore to shore, from India to Lanka, to comfort the captive Sita. With a force that made the sand fly and the waves run backward, he stretched his mighty legs. The power of his back leg propelled him skyward, while his front leg reached to touch Lanka's shore. Hands clasped as in prayer, he held Ramaโ€™s ring to his heart. When he found Sita sitting sadly under a tree guarded by demoness sentries, he stealthily delivered the ring and the news that Rama was on his way. . . .
