Yoga and Vegetarianism: The Diet of Enlightenment (in 4 languages!)
The seminal work on the subject, translated into 4 languages (English, Japanese, German & Italian!). 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.
Includes recipes and a 21-day detox program
