There are many different types of relationship, life is nothing but relationship. Nothing and no one is independent. If we think we are independent we create problems and heartache for ourselves.
The Yoga of Relationship teaches us to understand that we are in this constant and complex network of relationship and to learn from the emotional patterns that we usually follow. We learn to grow through our network of relationship. Others serve as mirrors in various ways, so that we may reach the core issue of what it means to live in relationship.
Life is relationship. Life is learning how to love and to transform emotions into devotion. Life is filling our hearts with unconditional love and be free from suffering.
Archarya Swami Sitaramananda will give lectures on yogic ways to transform Karma into Dharma through yoga of relationship.
