Hello dear Reader,
every spring nature awakes with an incredible force. The birds are singing and the diversity of greens are a joy for the eye and the heart. A new cycle of life begins. It is pointing to the indescribable behind all things, that about which we can only keep silent. It is the unreal within the real, the divine play, which has to be played skilfully.

Nothing but Love.

madhukar Madhukar: All of our bodies will go. This one also. Some time in the future also this rhythm, this wonderful rhythm of the heart, beating harmoniously, will end. Sooner or later. It will be exactly this moment. What a difference. Another ten days, maybe thousand, maybe million – no difference, this body will go. Who am I, stays the same, ever.

Papaji
You cannot say "I am free" because when you have this experience you don't need to say it. Just as you don't say "I am a woman", because it is something that you definitely know.

Books
rightcontent"If you do yoga and pranayama correctly then no disease will touch you. You need good prana and a healthy body and so I recommend that everybody do some yoga." (Papaji)

The best way to learn Hatha-Yoga is by a good teacher. If you need a book for learning yoga, the classic by the Belgium Andre van Lysebeth is most recommendable. He was a student of Swami Sivananda. The book describes in detail different Asanas, breathing techniques and the Sun Salutation, has many photos and can be very well used for self teaching.

Also Madhukar got to know yoga through van Lysebeth: "Being at the sun-bathed Ghats of Lake Pushkar in Brahmas temple-city in the Rajastan desert in 82 my body started to move in an unfamiliar manner. Only after I came upon a worn out first edition of the van Lysebeth classic in a bazaar that I realised the name of the exercise: Yoga!"

rightcontentThe book is available in many languages, the title of the English is "Yoga Self-Taught". A good companion to van Lysebeth is the "Der Weg des Yoga" (in German), edited by the Guild of German Yoga Teachers. It has a lot of background information from Patanjali to human anatomy to teaching and adds some new aspects to van Lysebeth.

"Yoga für den Menschen von heute" von Andre van Lysebeth.
Mosaik bei Goldmann, EUR 8,95

"Der Weg des Yoga, Handbuch für Übende und Lehrende", herausgegeben vom Berufsverband Deutscher Yogalehrer.

Music
rightcontent Brian Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno - aka Brian Eno – is one of the most creative artists in Modern Music, a former member of "Roxy Music" and coinventor of "ambient" music. According to the legend he found the atmosphere in the Cologne airport so depressing that he wanted to help acoustically. Result in 1978 was the "Music for Airports", a peaceful-meditative sound carpet made from tape loops of different length in permutations.

Ambient 1: Music for Airports von Brian Eno, CD EUR 29,32.

Lost & Found
"If you are going to be at all, then be first," wrote Russian cosmonaut Jurij Gagarin in a letter to his family. 50 years ago Gagarin was the first man in space and surrounded earth in 108 minutes with his spaceship "Wostok" ("East").
