Higher Power Yoga Song: My sweet Lord by George Harrison

"I really wanna know you!" 

"I really wanna know you!" 

Former Beatle, George Harrison really hit it out of the park with this one.  A humble ode to Eastern religions, specifically Hindu God, Krishna, My sweet Lord brings out the unconditional and divine spirit that’s in every one of us.  Krishna was one of the most important representations of divinity in the Hindu tradition and I loved learning about him in yoga teacher training.

The song can really be about any higher power, no matter what physical image it takes, and I find that whenever I reach out to something larger than myself, a sense of peaceful humility soon follows.

Rest in peace, George Harrison. You sure left us with some great stuff.

So I ask you yogis, can you channel your inner devotion and reach out to whomever you need a little extra power from today and tell them how much you “really want to know them.”

Yogi moves- humble warrior. I mean since we’re already there.

Press play and enjoy!

Hm, my lord
Hm, my lord
