Yoga and Vegetarianism: The Diet of Enlightenment
The seminal work on the subject. Using Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras as a guide, Sharon Gannon makes a convincing case for why a yogi would want to be a strict vegetarian (vegan).
The committed vegan and animal-rights activist delves beyond the yogic ethic of ahimsa (non-harming) to explore how all five yamas, or ethical guidelines, recommended in the Yoga Sutras (ahimsa, satya, asteya, brahmacharya and aparigraha) have been grossly subverted by modern agri-business — damaging the planet, the animals, and our health and spiritual well-being in the process.
Yoga and Vegetarian is available in 8 languages! It has been translated from English into German, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Turkish & Russian! For information about versions not available from this website, please contact us.
