Vishrama – relaxation 

«May this work named ‘the ocean of nectar composed of bhakti-rasa’ always serve as the recreation hall of my Lord manifested in the form called Sanātana (Gosvāmī) for His pleasure» (Sri Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu, 2.5.115).

Last month I was talking to you about sweetness, Pisces, now I’m talking about a “recreation room” where you can find pleasure thanks to this sweetness that you have cultivated and that surrounds you. Vishrama exactly means “rest”, “relaxation”, “tranquility”, “calm”, but it is also a “place to rest”.

It may be that the job asks you to be active and focused until Christmas, Pisces. Some discussion, something to rectify, however much frenzy there may be you can still count on good relationships and then in the end everything is cleared up with everyone. So you can end the year relaxing, in a place where you can rest while enjoying the Christmas holidays and good food!


Sulabha danda-āsana, easy stick pose

Does it seem too easy? Yet it’s not that easy to let go. Observe where spontaneously lets go of your head? Is she really relaxed?
