“Monthly Vidya”~ Bhagavad Gita Chapter 3 Vs. 35

HATHAVIDYA. Heard of it?

If you have been in my classes or in proximity of my general person the past few years you have. Hathavidya is the school brought to fruition lovingly by my teacher Will Duprey and mantra guide Susan Duprey. “Hathavidya is an inclusive science comprised of yogic principles evolved from the teachings of
Will Duprey to purify, empower and uplift the spirit toward clarity and elevating the human experience.” These principles are the foundation of everything I teach. Clear, concise techniques and knowledge leading us ultimately towards an expansion of how we live truthfully. I’m blessed to be a part of it all <3

Recently i’ve added the following tool to my classes- a monthly text or passage from a classical text to guide how we show up. Each time you come to the mat you will hear me read the passage (Monthly Vidya) paired with a personal offering. Let the passage simmer and uncover what it is meant to in you!

July’s Month Vidya comes from the Bhagavad Gita. Chapter 3 v.35

?rey?n sva-dharmo vigu?a?
para-dharm?t sv-anu??hit?t
sva-dharme nidhana? ?reya?
para-dharmo bhay?vaha?


“It is better to strive in one’s own dharma than to succeed in the dharma of another. Nothing is ever lost in following one’s own dharma, but competition in another’s dharma breeds fear and insecurity”

We’ve been exploring this passage in terms of sacred duty. When we apply the sacred to dharma it becomes truth- it is no longer something to make our individual person bright and shiny- but rather an individual duty or privilege we must exercise to show just how special we ALL are, EQUALLY. I’m Special, You’re special, we are all special because we carry the divine within. Our dharma is a way we show up in the world, work, breathe, live, influence and move towards LOVE. When we compete with others, when we become envious or saddened by others success we are missing the destination before we even pave the path. If we stop trying to separate our “specialness” our powers combine… Think, Spiritual Power Rangers! 😉

Let’s stand side by side. Maybe we’ll get a little closer to the recognition that separation is just an illusion.

Oh how sweet it is <3
