Today is a day of celebration and new beginnings. After 10 profound years of podcasting (and broadcasting at Vancouver Coop Radio 100.5FM), I am bringing Drishti Point to a close. It has come time to let go, bring closure, celebrate the many people who contributed to Drishti Point, and offer gratitude for the blessing it has been in my life.
More than 10 years ago, when I could barely imagine myself as a Yoga teacher, I never would have imagined that I would get to meet and converse with some of the greatest spiritual teachers on this planet. Every guest had a gift for me and some gifts will remain forever in my heart.
Drishti Point like all beautiful things in life is impermanent; like a flower from the earth- here to offer beauty and fragrance only temporarily. The truth of impermanence is the hardest one of all to accept even though it is reflected all around us in the changing seasons, our changing bodies, our fluctuating emotions and moods, and the flow of friendships.
Drishti Point has been my friend and companion for close to a decade and I am eternally grateful to the many Angels who showed up to help and contribute. Loren Spagnulo, Mike Stanely, Liana Yip, Sri Venu, Madhuri, Sarah Newton, Sarah Morrissette, Ellen Koch, Jimena Mendieta and countless others. May your lives be blessed with beauty, health, abundance, harmony, and peace.
In the last 10 years, I have volunteered over 2288 hours, supervised over 10 volunteers, produced over 400 podcasts, partnered with five organizations and produced half a dozen fundraising events. Drishti Point Yoga Podcasts has been the single, largest project I have ever worked on and it has taught me countless lessons and brought me immeasurable joy.
After interviewing hundreds of teachers, the single thread in all of these podcasts is that true happiness comes from selfless service, cultivating virtues (patience, forgiveness, generosity, loving-kindness), and connection to a higher Being or higher purpose.
It has been my honour to serve all of our listeners as your Host and Producer and it is my hope that Drishti Point podcasts will inspire seekers for years to come. To this end, I have now uploaded most Drishti Point podcasts to www.yogapodcast.podomatic.com and they are now free and in the public domain for all to access and download.
As for new beginnings, for 2016, I will produce podcasts for Hollyhock. Stay tuned for more details!
With all my love. Yours in service,
Farah Moolji Nazarali
