Lifestyle: The Journey Begins

“Sannyãsa meant renouncing all wordily attachments”

The Bhagavad Gita

I need to explain the meaning of this important word so you can understand why I chose it as the name of this new business, of this new life style, of this new beginning …

Sannyāsa in Sanskrit means “Purification of Everything”.

Is a form of asceticism, is marked by renunciation of material desires and prejudices, represented by a state of disinterest and detachment from material life, and has the purpose of spending one’s life in peaceful, love-inspired, simple spiritual life.

The traditional approach to the spiritual life is, “leaving the world”,retiring from the ordinary affairs of job and family-is contrasted with working un the world with detachment. 

The person undertaking the vow of sannyasa would leave home, family and occupation to pursue a strict contemplative life and will become a sannyasi.

I know I am not a traditional sannyasi but this word and his powerful meaning as been extremely attractive to me. The idea of leaving everything that is not longer working for me in order to follow my dreams. 

In 2011, I left my comfortable life in Argentina to pursuit my happiness, to do something I have been dreaming about for a long time:

Travel the world and visit as many places as possible, share my teaching and help other to feel better through my classes. Connect with people from other cultures and learn about them

I started in Brazil I came back to Argentina, couple of months after work in France showed up so I took a flight and stayed and travel trough Spain. After that was Mexico, following by  Cuba, Canada, back to Mexico, all Central America and finally Grand Cayman.

I have taught private lessons, hostel lessons, fancy hotel lessons, to rich people, to travellers, to kids, to groups of friends and so on gathering so much experience and enriching my knowledge.

And reaffirm this is what I want to do for living.

The general term for retiring from the world is Sannyasa, ” renunciation”.

Maybe I didn’t retired completely from the world, I just retired from my world at the moment, from the “must do” once you finish university and you are living on you own terms.

I just needed to lose my self so I can find me again.

That is why my journey begins time with Sanñyasa.

Where does your journey begin?

Is never too late for  your dreams to come true.

Namaste
