 thank you, merudanda, but for someone like me with pre glaucoma, it's better 
to avoid any asanas that feature the legs above the head. Something about 
increased pressure on optic nerve.

 Aren't all of us without the manifestation of that/any disease "pre" _________ 
(fill in the name of any disease here)?

 "Though Siddhartha fled from the self a thousand times, stayed in nothingness, 
stayed in the animal, in the stone, the return was inevitable, inescapable was 
the hour, when he found himself back in the sunshine or in the moonlight, in 
the shade or in the rain, and was once again his self and Siddhartha, and again 
felt the agony of the cycle which had been forced upon him. .....
"What is meditation? What is leaving one's body? What is fasting? What is 
holding one's breath? It is fleeing from the self, it is a short escape of the 
agony of being a self, it is a short numbing of the senses against the pain and 
the pointlessness of life. The same escape, the same short numbing is what the 
driver of an ox-cart finds in the inn, drinking a few bowls of rice-wine or 
fermented coconut-milk. Then he won't feel his self any more, then he won't 
feel the pains of life any more, then he finds a short numbing of the senses. 
When he falls asleep over his bowl of rice-wine, he'll find the same what 
Siddhartha and Govinda find when they escape their bodies through long 
exercises, staying in the non-self. This is how it is, oh Govinda." 
H.Hesse "Siddhartha"Chapter 2 WITH THE SAMANAS


O h my...back the memory train to the future
She's got it

A Goddess on a mountain top
Was burning like a silver flame
She's got it
Her weapons were
Her crystal eyes
Happy Chinese New Year of the Horse
