Tranquility - Carpe Diem’s Tackle it Tuesday #1 Serenity


Sri Swami Sivananda (1887-1963)

This week the first episode of Tackle it Tuesday is Serenity and it is based on the philosophy of Sri Swami Sivananda (1887-1963) who composed the song of the 18-ity.  He was born in the south of India an studied medicine.  He worked as a doctor several years in Malaysia. After that he settled in Rishikesh at the foot of the Himalayans where he devoted his life to yoga and the spreading of it.

The first ity was serenity and the goal was to meditate and contemplate about this ity and become silent. Every ity needs a week (or a month) to learn. After you have done all 18 ‘ity, you start again with number one and so on.  There will become a time that you have changed into a better person, more in balance.
