阿南達瑪迦的寧靜能量

馬光宇(Dada Kaladharananda) 位我們示範瑜珈體位法

阿南達瑪迦是一個全球性的靈性暨社會服務組織,由雪莉‧雪莉‧阿南達慕提(普羅巴‧阮將‧沙卡先生)於1955年在印度創立。阿南達瑪迦的使命是自我了悟(個體的解脫)和社會服務(集體的福祉):實現所有人在身體、心理和靈性三層面的需求。阿南達瑪迦透過分佈在世界各地的靜坐中心和社會服務計劃,提供免費的靜坐教導、瑜伽體位法和其它有關自我發展的鍛鍊,並且給予社會急難救助和長期的社會需求。負責阿南達瑪迦瑜珈協會的馬光宇(Dada Kaladharananda) ,說明他們參與了多項的本地社會活動,定期拜訪12間不同的機構,如:老人安養中心、啟智學校、國中及高中、台北少年觀護所以及台北監獄。

在台灣,阿南達瑪迦表示曾有十萬人曾參與過他們的活動或課程,活躍的成員大約有一千人。

Pratiik – 阿南達瑪迦的圖騰

這圖案由兩個三角形所組合而成,向上的三角形象徵外部行動或是對社會整體的服務,向下的三角形象徵內在開發、知識、洞見、或是靜坐。在三角形中間有個升起的太陽,升起太陽內卍字符號,代表靈性的勝利、生命的目標皆為成就和靈性解放所包圍。

The Basketball Wave

師大運動競技系的石明宗教授,同時是師大籃球隊的總教練。 他認為對運動員而言,內在的修練是較不容易的。因此與阿南達瑪迦合作為期一年的計畫,希望讓球員能夠接觸靜坐、瑜珈,以及回饋社會的服務。

 

石老師在大學時曾經參加過阿南達瑪迦所舉辦的靜坐體驗營,後來又因為一次登山的瀕死經驗,因此開啟他對於運動與宗教經驗之間興趣。博士論文也是以此為題。在2002年以訪問學者身分出訪美國時,發覺在籃球比賽的競爭中,台灣人並不具有生理上優勢,他認為只有較成熟的內在心靈才有辦法與美國人競爭。因此開始這個重視「內在探索」的實驗計畫,希望讓球員在訓練和比賽之餘,也能在心靈上有所成長。

球隊管理孫秉宏表示,一開始球員對於這計畫感到很莫名,也不明白對自己有何幫助。他告訴球員瑜珈就像是伸展運動,有助於增加身體柔軟性以及平衡。孫認為對平常休閒活動都是以喝酒和其他夜生活為主的年輕球員而言,能夠有機會提升自我,在啟智學校以籃球表演活動作為社會服務,是很好的體驗。

Passive Aggressive Much?

Let's face it, we've all written them at times, and at other times we have all pretended that they are not written about us, whether they be notes pinned to front doors, or slogans pasted across 5 stories of a building, passive aggressive notes are an unavoidable symptom of city life. Taipei is no different, being a city with a very dense population, people tend to get on each other's nerves. This mostly anonymous way of addressing the strangers that live around us is one of the easiest forms of communication to overlook, it tends to blend into the city scape except in extreme examples, but it also tells us a lot about what is acceptable and unacceptable about our behaviour, and the minute influences we have on the people who share the city with us. Here are a few examples of passive aggressive notes that I noticed around my neighbourhood, what about yours? Feel free to send any passive aggressive notes you find to eRenlai (conor_at_erenlai.com).

[Main writings] "Only animals pee here"
[Added writings on the right] "I am an animal"

[Message in black] Dear residents, please make sure the door is well closed in order to prevent unwanted people from entering. Our safety depends on your vigilance. Thank you for your cooperation!

[Message added on the right side] Some people often forget to close the door. If anything happens, these people should pay full responsibility! This is terrible and outrageous!
