  • Season 2

  • SEASON 2 FINALE with Vijay Shyam | What does it mean to surrender the ego to Guru or God?

    SEASON 2 FINALE with Vijay Shyam | What does it mean to surrender the ego to Guru or God?

    Today I’m joined live in Sainj Valley, Himachal Pradesh, with a wonderful teacher, satsangee and great human being who I’m honoured to call my friend - Vijay Shyam. Check out season 1 episode 5 for the first conversation we had on the podcast, where Vijay shares his stories and insights and his meeting with Baba Vivekanand almost 40 years ago.  As Vijay and I adventured for a few days in the Himalayas, we had a special meeting with this very same Baba before we recorded this episode. As we discuss what we’re experiencing and understanding in our own sadhana, highlighted by the teachings of our shared Guru, Babaji, and other enlightened beings, I’ve clipped in some of our talk with Babaji from his little room at the temple. Here are some of the major points we circle on:  ➖08:55 Place everything at the feet of Guru  ➖16:52 The world will keep pushing your buttons  ➖18:01 How to be like the trees meditating  ➖22:09 Grief of death and knowing unborn  ➖34:30 We are the eternal Being, not beings ➖42:35 Babaji and Zero-ness - just empty your thoughts  ➖49:29 Burning karm and don’t interfere with nature ➖55:42 Guidance is important - hold somebody’s hand to walk this road  ➖61: 50 Surrender everything, even Sattwa or goodness ➖1:08:10 Making any being less than God is a kind of violence  Connect with Vijay Shyam at www.nondual.dk  www.linktr.ee/vijayshyam108   This delightful and deep conversation focuses on egolessness, surrender, death and living a truly illuminated life of oneness by knowing all as God, or Guru. This truly celebrates the highest knowledge, great company and another successful season of A Curious Yogi Podcast.  So sit back, relax, and come to the Himalayas with Vijay and me. I look forward to seeing you next season.  In oneness,  Bobbi  Thanks for listening!  💭 If you liked this episode, please leave a review on Apple podcasts – it really, really helps the show reach more people, plus I love reading each one.  💭Never miss a new episode and subscribe on Spotify, Apple Podcasts or your favourite platform.  💭 Share your biggest takeaway on Instagram stories – just be sure to tag @bobbipaidel so we can connect   💭 If you’d like to chat about the show, offer feedback or be a guest, please get in touch.  💭 Want to go further into your understanding of yoga sadhana?

  • Krishna Chaitanya | How does a yogi live spiritually & serve selflessly in a modern world?

    Krishna Chaitanya | How does a yogi live spiritually & serve selflessly in a modern world?

    “Nothing can teach us more about yoga than being in the presence of a yogi.” Today’s guest is the founder and director of AyurYoga Eco-Ashram Krishna Chaitanya. Having lived and studied in ashrams, seeking the wisdom of Guru's for 12 years, he has been trying to understand what it means to be spiritual from a realistic standpoint and made it his mission to unlearn everything he learned over the years. In this enlightening conversation, Krish shares his vision of living and studying yoga and spirituality. Here are some of the highlights: ➖08:45 The highest gift is spiritual knowledge ➖14:04 A space for yoga not in the extremes but rather focuses on freedom ➖19:00 How to experience life without feeling the world is a problem ➖24:51 How life traps us ➖35:40 Offending students with talk of spiritual hypocrisy ➖51:07 Personalizing our practice to our needs, not wants ➖1:01:15 What is selfless service really? Find Krish HERE: www.ayuryoga-ashram.com I really enjoyed celebrating my own yoga and teaching journey, which was expanded during my time at Ayuryoga Ashram back in 2020. I promise you’ll find something from this conversation for your practice (and your life). in oneness, Bobbi Thanks for listening! 💭 If you liked this episode, please leave a review on Apple podcasts – it really, really helps the show reach more people, plus I love reading each one. 💭Never miss a new episode and subscribe on Spotify, Apple Podcasts or your favourite platform. 💭 Share your biggest takeaway on Instagram stories – just be sure to tag @bobbipaidel so we can connect 💭 If you’d like to chat about the show, offer feedback or be a guest, please get in touch. 💭 Want to go further into your understanding of yoga sadhana?

  • Seegla Vistar Brecher | What does the Avadhoot Gita reveal about the state of Bliss?

    Seegla Vistar Brecher | What does the Avadhoot Gita reveal about the state of Bliss?

    “Life as the unfoldment of bliss through the journey of self enquiry - this was the only thing that made sense to me.” Today’s brilliant conversation is a peek into the lesser-known and profound Avadhoot Gita with a very special yogi, author, musician and teacher, Seegla Vistar Brecher. The Avadhoot Gita of Dattatraya: Song of the Unborn is a deep, meditative exploration of a 9th-century Advaita Vedanta text. Vistar offers her unique vision and interpretation of the Avadhoot and reveals the essence behind our collective, universal journey. We touch on so much! But here are a few key moments: ➖13:50 Vistars Sadhana, how do you live the freedom you know exists? ➖18:38 Advadhoot describes all pairs of opposites of the human condition and transcends them ➖26:41 Reading Chapter 6 verse 3: The mind as blissful ➖36:24 The essence of the practice is when you know there is no separation between you and the world ➖46:26 The choice of the yogi is to walk through the portal ➖56:13 Reading Chapter 7 verse 9: The yogi is both free from yog and lack of yoga ➖1:02:31 Reading Chapter 7 verse 4: Where does the unease come from? You can connect with Vistar at rahasyageet.com and find her music HERE And I highly recommend grabbing your own copy of The Avadhoot Gita of Dattatraya: Song of the Unborn HERE Vistar finishes the talk today by letting us know what is the greatest practice of a yogi - to watch. Ah, so refreshing, illuminating, inspiring and spacey - this is one of my favourite episodes yet.
