‘Thunder Storm at MADHUVAN LIFESTYLE – Guru Poornima 2017’
“The Guru Poornima 2017 Moon was bright and full even as the night sky grew darker last night, and the auspicious flash of blue light accompanied the powerful roaring of thunder and makes me think how I feel ‘YOU – God/Bhagvan/GURU’ truly speak loudly to me in moments like these.
The flashes of bright blue light were beckoning me to film for all you friends to enjoy together with me.”

Festival of India Ottawa 2016
Yes we will be there.
I am so delighted to have been asked to lead a MADHUVAN LIFESTYLE – Yoga, Meditation & Music Workshop at the festival this year on Aug.7th, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm at Jean Pigott Hall, Ottawa City Hall, Ottawa ON CANADA. I hope to see you there too. Google Map – Jean Pigott Hall
Attending the festival in 2014 and 2015 were highlights of these years for me. The delightful ambiance there really appeals to me.
Here in this pic, we had just purchased a wonderful Indian outfit and bangles from one of the booths there for my daughter to wear the following day at the 2nd day of the Festival of India Ottawa in 2015.
One of my yoga students ‘Diya’ had invited me to come and watch her dancing … and it was so incredible! I was totally mesmerized by the amount of effort that must have gone into preparing for this wonderful festival … all run by volunteers!
There is so much excitement and focus that I can’t wait to tell you more …

The Sense of Expansion and Awareness
Each day an individual can also experience the sense of expansion and awareness that heightens his consciousness (individual consciousness that is), by identifying with higher knowledge which leads the participant to experience ‘the bliss of the absolute’, and thus remain calm, or calmer even while witnessing the various happenings.
Regularly sitting in meditation, reading scriptures or books written by sages and saints help to direct the attention to the height of understanding, and then with practice one experiences bliss and the ultimate outcome of union with one’s ‘Higher Self.’
The practice of daily Yogic exercise releases the build up of stress and strengthens the body and immune system to be able to maintain a healthy body fit for the realization of something more vast than the normal waking consciousness …
In other words, one begins to identify with the process of higher thinking by repeating the thoughts of immortality and bliss, our true nature.
Part of our MADHUVAN LIFESTYLE routine is to read daily from – ‘Meet Your True Self Through Meditation’, as an effective way to learn a vocabulary and outlook on how to become aware of the witness within, and communicate on such a level to remain expansive in thought.
For further reading regarding this process of awareness, please refer to a wonderful introduction to meditation called – ‘Meet Your True Self through Meditation’: http://swamishyam.com/books/english-books.htm
‘A view of the Self through the eyes of the enlightened being. Reading this book directly transforms one’s consciousness into the state of meditation and knowledge of the Self as the free Space. Written in an engaging and intimate style, the text includes anecdotes; references to the Bhagavad Gita; an in-depth description of the meaning of samadhi, or the superstate of consciousness; and the technique of meditation.’

Documentary Film – ‘Life and Times of MADALSA’
An opportunity has arisen for a professional film documentary to be done regarding my life and passion towards Indian Classical Music, and how it all began as a Canadian fair skinned young female who had never heard Indian music until 1983.
Planning to share the joys and sorrows, challenges and triumphs of the accomplishments thus far, and teach the beauty of Indian Music within the context of a blissful lifestyle setting.
All that has manifested thus far will be shared to support the growth of higher awareness among the many interested students who are striving to reach a height of understanding to know inner peace and live out this life in joy and happiness.
