Durga Devi 陳瑜

dd222一位瑜伽行者(Sannyasin),純淨直達心靈的梵唱,來自近乎瘋狂的練習(Sādhanā),直到梵咒(Mantra)成為一種意識狀態。長住瑜伽修道院(Āshram)忙碌而踏實,親身傳承瑜伽哲學與梵唱,為修道院不可或缺的瑜伽出家士。後順隨因緣轉任回台,才明白自身的任務在於建立橋樑、向不同群體翻譯曾親身經驗的真實;依時勢應變,持續嘗試引導參與者經驗真實智慧與瑜伽修行。修行就在吃飯睡覺玩耍的日常生活中、在每天每口呼吸每個念頭之中。瑜伽通達的狀態認真,但不需要嚴肅。時常浮誇地哈哈大笑,生活則充滿歌唱與舞蹈。瑜伽這條通往超脫(在這座像聖殿一般的身體裡當下自在)的道路,屬於所有人,需要親身實驗,找到它在生活中的實現方式。         



Ever-immersed in Mantra Sādhanā (practice), gradually the mantra chanted becomes her state of being. Durga Devi’s voice has a transcendent quality to it that caresses the soul in an ever-expanding soundscape. As a sannyasin (renounciate: one who dedicated their life and energy to yoga or Self-evolution) she also embraces the mission/challenge of sharing ancient wisdom of yoga in practical ways that can be applied to modern daily life.


哲學,若是不能實踐於生活之中,未免牽強。
然而,若是改變自己原來的樣貌,未免可惜。

我以梵唱為表現,在日常生活中作我自己。
