Different roles to play in life… meeting with Vinodji

Yesterday I attended meeting with Vinodji (Vinod Menon). It was awesome and different than what I was expecting.
When I entered the meeting room with Ashwani, I was shocked to see Vinodji already discussing with other teachers. (Ok. One more thing, it was meeting only for teachers 🙂 ). I was expecting some strict action or comment being late, but that was not the case. Actually we reached 10 mins ahead of time but he started talking even before that :).
Vinodji was completely in chill out mood and we joined discussion smoothly 😉 . It was all going casually, in fun way and still hitting our intellect hard 🙂 . In fact, that was the point he wanted to make – how much intellectual rigor we have to know, to research….. as, AOL related things we keep taking for granted or with faith, etc. It was too good the way he took it 🙂
Another great learning was – we play different roles at different point of time and if we get stuck to one role it might create problem. I was expecting Vinodji to be strict as he was in DSN (I did it with him before 2years). But here in this formal meeting he was completely different. So point was so clear, obvious with LIVE example – behave as a teacher in course and not in home 🙂 behave as a son, brother.. in home, behave as a employee in office, behave as a boyfriend to your gal;) . Otherwise it really creates problem 😉 .
Vinodji asked us to work on to remove the 9 obstacles on the path of Yoga that are mentioned in PYS….. and one good point he mentioned was – there is REST in every emotion/ every thing in nature. And Uparati means to take/seek rest in/from any given situation. I liked this point very much…. say you are frustrated and you are seeking rest even from frustration. Nice ha 🙂
And few more things he told us….. you should definitely meet him whenever you get a chance …. after all he is embodiment of excellence 🙂

  1. He was amazing. I have met him earlier at Bau’s room in Ashram, and whatever he spoke (QnA) were bouncer..But meeting with him here was v nice, esp. 9 obstacles in PYS & GM foods.
