KHAITA JOYFUL DANCES
A short explanation of « KHAITA » « Khaita » is « Harmony in the Space »:
Kha = space / sky. Ta = harmony / melody.
Transcription of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu’s words:
Milarepa said « any movement you do is Yantra », just like you are doing Yantra Yoga or doing meditation, some exercise. Milarepa said « there is no difference » because depend you, what you do everything, dealing with. Even if you are only jumping, but if you are jumping with presence, relaxed, then it become useful.
If you are interested of teachings Sutra, teachings Tantra, teachings Dzogchen, Anuyoga, everything is coming from Tibet. When I was in Tenerife last year, then I am listening some of this Tibetan music, songs, etc… and I discovered how they are singing, they are communicating happiness, a sort of feeling, and situation, which kind of difficulties they have they are bringing in the melody, this is how we do in Dzogchen Teaching.
We try to understand which is the real situation, we do our best, for that reason I am thinking …oh, it is necessary, we should learn songs and listening well Tibetan songs.
What do you need to do when you are dancing?…when you are dancing…coordinate, must being present. That means you are being present, otherwise you couldn’t dance, but if you are present when you are dancing you relax also, even jumping, not necessary charging ..no, you jump relaxed, then it become also good for you, no?
It helps. Dancing, relaxing, being present, knowing that…this is practice, no? This is practice. No? How is it?
