Spirituality and Activism
Sadhviji responds passionately and eloquently to the ongoing racism, separation and violence that are currently permeating our world. She addresses the steps needed on both an individual and societal level to co-create a world of true oneness, and she explains clearly where spirituality and action intersect.
In a period of significant social tension, Sadhviji urges us as spiritual beings to not only recognise that we are part of the problem, have remorse and take responsibility, but to stand up and act. True Yoga is not about being a ‘Human Being’ rather than a ‘Human Doing’, it is being while doing, as explained by Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita.
Pantajali’s Yoga Sutras teach us that Yoga is not just Asana. Yoga includes having morality, humanity and following Ahimsa. We have to take yoga off the mat and be conscious of how we walk in the world. The illusion of separation leads to violence. We have to realise that we are One.
Sadhviji directs us to stand up and find solutions. We as Yogis can make a conscious decision to be part of the solution and to build unity. With open eyes and open hearts, we must have the true awareness to respond to injustices in society and act with truth, presence and love.
