An angel marvels at the detail and overtime that the good Lord is putting into his creation of mothers. Despite the six pairs of hands and the three pairs of eyes that every mother needs, the angel thinks she has discovered a flaw:"There's a leak," she pronounced. "I told you that you were trying to put too much into this model.""It's not a leak," said the Lord. "It's a tear.""What's it for?""It's for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness and pride.""You are a genius," said the angel.The Lord looked somber, "I didn't put it there."
Every mother will treasure this moving tribute, penned by America's most beloved expert on motherhood.
Not another translation but a highly readable and in-depth exploration of select passages from this essential classical text as a key to the complete path of yoga“The fruit of a lifetime of inquiry and practice, this is a book that the world needs.” —Mark Singleton, author of Yoga Body and Roots of Yoga“Unassuming, generous and brilliant, Dave and Ranju teach from the heart with wit and wisdom.” —Tara Fraser, Director Yoga Junction, author Yoga for You and Yoga BlissUnderstanding Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras is the key to understanding yoga itself, and yet relatively few of today’s practitioners know how to apply these ancient Sanskrit aphorisms to contemporary life. Ranju Roy and David Charlton focus on 18 of the most important sutras and show how each one illuminates the relationship between the body, the breath, and the mind.The authors examine the interplay of three key terms: support, direction, and space. They suggest that only by taking “support” can you establish a clear direction; and once a direction is established then space can open up. This formula can be applied as successfully to the body (in asana) as to the breath (in pranayama) and the mind (through meditation).Embodying the Yoga Sutras is a practical and a deeply philosophical book.
