Laughter Yoga | Laughing Buddhas

Enlightenment can mean letting go of established concepts or waking up from illusions and delusions, resulting in joy and laughter. Healing and therapy can happen through laughter, whether it comes by revelation or revolution. In a world that has been wrecked by violence and hatred and blinded by the illusion of separateness, perhaps laughing together can unite peoples of different races, backgrounds, etc together.

Alegria

Alegria
I see a spark of life shining
Alegria
I hear a young minstrel sing
Alegria
Beautiful roaring scream
Of joy and sorrow,
So extreme
There is a love in me raging
Alegria
A joyous,
Magical feeling

It is good to be greeted by an uplifting song upon waking up. I googled and learnt that Alegria means a joyful state of mind in Spanish. Yes, as the lyrics goes, there is a spark of life shining in us. The music, the minstrel in us, the love in us raging – a joyous magical feeling – can be heard by the universe. We are both divine and human, an expression of joy and sorrow in our ongoing existence, creating meaning and beauty in the music and dance of life.

Nirvana Shatakam

Video information

“The great Adi Shankara (first Shankaracharya) of the eighth century summarized the entirety of Advaita Vedanta (non-dualistic philosophy) in six stanzas. When a young boy of eight, while wandering in the Himalayas, seeking to find his guru, he encountered a sage who asked him, “Who are you?” The boy answered with these stanzas, which are known as “Nirvana Shatakam” or “Atma Shatakam.” “Nirvana” is complete equanimity, peace, tranquility, freedom and joy. “Atma” is the True Self. The sage the boy was talking to was Swami Govindapada Acharya, who was, indeed, the teacher he was looking for.”
