Many years ago, at an international Conference on ‘Healing’ arranged by a Lama-friend of mine; I met a ‘Medicine –man’ (which I would now call a Shaman) of the Shuar, the Shuar live in the upper part of the Amazon, in the tropical rainforest of Ecuador and Peru.

I was reminded of him on this Earth-Day.

For the Shuar the Earth Mother is called Nunkui, She nurtures all that grows.

New book published

This is a fascinating insight into balancing the feminine and masculine principles within each of us, society and the world at large. Swami Nityamuktananda Saraswati takes up the challenge of delving into the root cause of many of the problems we face today. In doing so, she returns to the beginning and powerfully lays out how and why things went awry. She offers tangible solutions to redress the balance.

 

As Aum (ॐ ) is the sound of the universe, Aeem (ऐं) is the Divine vibration of knowing; the cosmic  intelligence vibrating throughout the universe.

SHE is honoured in different contexts in the form of Saraswati, Savitri or Gayatri (India), as Prajnaparamita( Buddhism)  as Dolma (Tibet), as Sophia, Athene (Greece) as Dahomey (Africa) as Pte san-Wi (white Buffalo Woman (Native America)) as Danu or Brigit (Celts)  …etc., all these are forms of the Divine Force of wisdom.

Wisdom is living from the awareness of Oneness.

Applied wisdom is Yoga

It is adamant that we turn away from the power-crazy, destructive perception, which in our global society has gone to extreme, which means unearthing and redirecting our focus into the opposite direction.“That means, even though the goal is balance, there first has to happen a turning; in this case from a materialistic society dominated by the masculine principle, to rekindle the values inherent in the feminine principle. Hence I endeavour to contemplate the feminine principle however not in isolation but with the awareness of, and in dialogue with, the masculine.  This means we cannot talk about driving out the patriarchal and installing a matriarchal society, but we need to move to the next level up, where both energies (the masculine and the feminine) contribute to a society of harmony and peace; where co-operation in love and respect is the goal; not the survival of the strongest, most scrupulous and ruthless.”
