"Yoga on War & Peace" summarizes for the modern reader the timeless wisdom on the roots of violence & how to put an end to the cycle of conflict. In doing so the book addresses the question, "Are fear, violence, insecurity, possessiveness, & the hunger for power innate to human beings?" War is never new but always startling. After the bodies are counted & the damage assessed, survivors ask, "Why" as if it were a new question, & "When will it happen again?" This most recent of post-war periods provides us with time to pause & think about the roots of both individual & collective violence, fear, & anger. "Yoga on War & Peace" uses the spiritual insights of the yoga traditions to examine the problem of war. In lucid & elegant prose, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Ph.D., explains how external conflict begins with the negative emotions we harbor in our hearts & minds. Moreover, he provides practical exercises & techniques for lessening the hold of negativity on our psyches & for enjoying fearlessness, nonviolence, & love without attachment in our daily lives. He also relates inspirational stories to illustrate how we can transform society--from the inside out.
