About Bilva: Starting July 1 to July 31 2021 - Damaru Yoga and Sound Therapy Studio announces its Annual Yoga Festival - Bilva 2021. The theme for this year is ‘Cultural Appropriateness of Yoga: The necessity to embrace the inherent Indianness of the yogic tradition’. Bilva 2021 is aimed to bring awareness, and to honour the Indian roots of the Yogic tradition. To practice yoga holistically, it is important to understand and embrace the lineage of the yogic practice that finds its origins in the Vedas.
Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years in the Indian subcontinent. While its roots lie in this region, it has always been integrative and universal in nature without limiting its teachings/ applications/ practices to a specific religion or region. The yogic teachings are precious pearls of insight for all humanity, facilitating us with an access to our innate higher nature.
However, in recent years, it has become convenient to minimalize yoga to that, which is practiced on the mat, because most of today’s world fails to understand its holistic teachings. When one practices yoga without understanding its roots and contexts – the true potential is lost and many a times knowingly or unknowingly, misappropriated. It is time we explore the intrinsic interconnectedness of the facets of yoga. Let us bring about more awareness of the depth of our own knowledge systems and embrace them with full heart – it is a tradition we are proud to have inherited from our ancestors.
Festival Schedule will be shared on 22 June 2021. Keep watching this space!
