This pose is dedicated to the Filipino UN peacekeepers at the moment defiantly resisting hostiles in Golan Heights
Breaking News: As of this posting at 4am, about 81 Filipino United Nations peacekeepers are defiantly resisting and standing their ground against Syrian rebels in Golan Heights. It started a few hours ago. They’re still there. They need all the help they can get.
This pose, named after the beam of divine light that started the creation of the universe, is dedicated to the Filipino United Nations peacekeepers at the moment refusing to surrender and holding fort against fully armed hostiles.
Inquirer reported that the Syrian rebels subdued Fijian UN peacekeepers in Golan Heights then proceeded to capture Filipino troops who defied the hostiles, as a result of which, a standoff ensued.
“After capturing 43 Fijian United Nations peacekeepers in Golan Heights Thursday, Syrian rebels proceeded to capture Filipino troops, who defiantly resisted, as a result of which a standoff has ensued, the Philippine military said late Thursday night. “The rebels surrounded the Philippine contingent’s encampments and demanded that Filipino troops surrender their firearms, but the Filipinos resisted.”
I HOPE THE SITUATION IS DEFUSED AND THAT PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ARE ALREADY AWAKE AT THIS TIME AND MAKING REPRESENTATIONS WITH THE UNITED NATIONS TO MAKE SURE OUR COUNTRYMEN GET HOME SAFE.
This pose is the Marichy C pose (marichyasana C). Marichy in Sanskrit means ray of light. In ancient Hindu legend, Marichy is a sage and the chief of the warlike storm gods, the Maruts. He is the son of Brahma, father of the sun deity, Surya. He is known as one of the seven lords of creation (prajapatis) or seven seers, who can divine the laws of the universe.
Dedicated to the peacekeepers — We’ve got your six.
How to execute:
1) Feet and legs at your 12 o’clock or in front of you or at zero degrees. Left leg stretched, right leg bent up.
2) Turn your core to your 3 o’clock, or to your right side, or at 90 degrees. If you’re facing east, twist your core to your north.
3) Wrap the inside of the crook of your LEFT elbow all around, or all over, your RIGHTknee, on the outside, going in the direction of your back, or to your six. That is, coming from your 3 o’clock, wrapped around your right knee, your left arm goes all the way back to your six.
4)Bind. Bind strong. (Bind your hands at your six or at your back. The full pose is to bind hand to wrist, mine is just hand to hand, the full pose is a straight torso, mine is at 40 degrees.).
Hail to the 81 Marichys — Filipino United Nations peacekeepers – chiefs of the warlike habagat gods.
