Kamala’s Musings

We continue our series on Patanjali's Yoga Sutra with an in-depth exploration of ahimsa or non-injury. We'll look at both the obvious and subtle ways ahimsa must be understood as well as practical ways we can apply this principle in our personal lives.

I hope you enjoy this issue.
