In "Light on the Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali" , B.K.S. Iyengar writes about sutra II.35. This sutra describes the effects of ahimsa, or nonviolence.
It states that when non-violence in speech, thought an action is established, one's aggressive nature is relinquished and others abandon hostility in one's presence.
By practicing mindfulness in each moment we can lesson our violent actions, speech and thoughts.
This month the donation will go to help a young girl in Guatemala so she can attend school. I am so happy this can happen for her.
Much thanks to all who attended and to Tammy Fulton of Yoga Sublime for sharing this space for this practice.
Next Peace Practice is February 5th!
