Like most Sanskrit words Shri cannot be defined with one English word. Shri is splendor; the magnificent light that shines from the rays of the sun, gleams off the water and twinkles from one’s eyes. Shri is the goddess Lakshmi; she is divine beauty both elegant and graceful. Shri is abundant and reminds us that there is always more; the universe is expanding. Shri is sacred and affirms life.
When we begin to practice Yoga and its life affirming philosophy and approach, that good feeling we first experience often deepens into true joy - SHRI. By recognizing and acknowledging that brightness and goodness, you will help to magnify the Shri all around you. Yoga helps us slow down and begin to develop greater awareness. As you stop and smell the roses, notice the color of the sky or the dew sparkling on the grass etc., then like the radiance of a star you will magnify Shri all around you and within you.
