MEDITATION ON THE GITA Om paarthaaya pratibodhitaam bhagavataa naaraayanenaswayam,    Vyaasena grathitaam puraanamuninaa madhye mahaabhaaratam; Advaitaamritavarshineem bhagavateem ashtaadashaa dhyaayineem,    Amba twaam anusandadhaami bhagavadgeete bhavadweshineem. 1. Om. O Bhagavad Gita, with which Partha was illumined by Lord Narayana Himself, and which was composed within the Mahabharata by the ancient sage, Vyasa, O Divine Mother, the destroyer of rebirth, the showerer of the nectar of Advaita, and consisting of eighteen discourses–upon Thee, O Gita, O affectionate Mother, I meditate! Namostu te vyaasa vishaalabuddhe phullaaravindaayatapatranetra; Yena twayaa bhaaratatailapoornah prajwaalito jnaanamayah pradeepah. 2. Salutations unto thee, O Vyasa, of broad intellect and with eyes like the petals of a full-blown lotus, by whom the lamp of knowledge, filled with the oil of the Mahabharata, has been lighted! Prapannapaarijaataaya totravetraikapaanaye; Jnaanamudraaya krishnaaya geetaamritaduhe namah. 3. Salutations to Lord Krishna, the Parijata or the Kalpataru or the bestower of all desires for those who take refuge in Him, the holder of the whip in one hand, the holder of the symbol of divine knowledge and the milker of the divine nectar of the Bhagavad Gita! Sarvopanishado gaavo dogdhaa gopaalanandanah; Paartho vatsah sudheer bhoktaa dugdham geetaamritam mahat. 4. All the Upanishads are the cows; the milker is Krishna; the cowherd boy, Partha (Arjuna), is the calf; men of purified intellect are the drinkers; the milk is the great nectar of the Gita. Vasudevasutam devam kamsachaanooramardanam; Devakeeparamaanandam krishnam vande jagadgurum. 5. I salute Sri Krishna, the world-teacher, son of Vasudeva, the destroyer of Kamsa and Chanura, the supreme bliss of Devaki! Bheeshmadronatataa jayadrathajalaa gaandhaaraneelotpalaa;    Shalyagraahavatee kripena vahanee karnena velaakulaa; Ashwatthaama-vikarna-ghora-makaraa duryodhanaavartinee;    Sotteernaa khalu paandavai rananadee kaivartakah keshavah. 6. With Kesava as the helmsman, verily was crossed by the Pandavas the battle-river, whose banks were Bhishma and Drona, whose water was Jayadratha, whose blue lotus was the king of Gandhara, whose crocodile was Salya, whose current was Kripa, whose billow was Karna, whose terrible alligators were Vikarna and Asvatthama, whose whirlpool was Duryodhana. Paaraasharya vachah sarojamamalam geetaarthagandhotkatam;    Naanaakhyaanakakesaram harikathaa sambodhanaabodhitam; Loke sajjana shatpadairaharahah pepeeyamaanam mudaa;    Bhooyaadbhaaratapankajam kalimala pradhwamsinah shreyase. 7. May this lotus of the Mahabharata, born in the lake of the words of Vyasa, sweet with the fragrance of the meaning of the Gita, with many stories as its stamens, fully opened by the discourses of Hari, the destroyer of the sins of Kali, and drunk joyously by the bees of good men in the world, become day by day the bestower of good to us! Mookam karoti vaachaalam pangum langhayate girim; Yatkripaa tamaham vande paramaanandamaadhavam. 8. I salute that Madhava, the source of supreme bliss, whose Grace makes the dumb eloquent and the cripple cross mountains! Yam brahmaa varunendrarudramarutah stunwanti divyaih stavaih,    Vedaih saangapadakramopanishadair gaayanti yam saamagaah, Dhyaanaavasthitatadgatena manasaa pashyanti yam yogino,    Yasyaantam na viduh suraasuraganaa devaaya tasmai namah. 9. Salutations to that God whom Brahma, Indra, Varuna, Rudra and the Maruts praise with divine hymns, of whom the Sama-chanters sing by the Vedas and their Angas (in the Pada and Krama methods), and by the Upanishads; whom the Yogis see with their minds absorbed in Him through meditation, and whose ends the hosts of Devas and Asuras know not!

Ever since high school I've been attracted to Eastern philosophy and the Buddha. I just didn't know it was a lifestyle I could live myself. I believe in karma and reincarnation and feel yoga is something I have done for many lifetimes.    I think this way because once I started practicing yoga in 2010 during a shamanic retreat in Brazil, I went deep into the practice immediately and never looked back. And so my inquiry into the Self began. Then I moved into vipassana meditation retreats, and my first teacher training in India before finally discovering my teacher, Sri Dharma Mittra. He was in my hometown of New York City all along.     I have since done my 500 and 800 hour teacher training certifications with Sri Dharma and now travel the world to share the teachings. I lead a playful, graceful, and strong style of hatha raja yoga with delightful variations of poses, profound breathing techniques, chanting, and deep relaxation.    On Dec. 1, 2015, Sri Dharma Mittra initiated me into the lineage with the name of Yogi Ram Om. I will honor this name and do my best to live up to it.

Pablo Narayana was born in Mexico City in 1985. He studied International Business at Universidad Panamericana, as he was afraid to follow his heart and study a humanistic career that was what he really wanted. He thought it was his duty to make money and wear a tie and jacket every single day. In 2008 he finished university and a big change in his life made him approach to photography as a career. In addition to being a photographer he is passionate about innovation, technology and media, so since 2013 gives consultancy to companies that want to improve their way of communicating.  In 2011 he took a Yoga class and his life started to change (again), never thinking he would become a yoga teacher he went to an ashram to deepen his own practice. Since then, over the past 4 years he lived in ashrams learning from great teachers. Part of his practice is sharing what he has learned. He has been sober since 2010 and puts all the possible time into working with other addicts.
