However, it is in this fast-paced environment that we find our sense of peace. Regardless of the external circumstances, the challenge of yoga is always to come back to the order within.
In India, you will see monkeys, cows, horses, dogs, goats, and many other animals walking past you on a daily basis. Their streets are crowded with sellers of mala beads, incense, fresh fruit, and small sculptures of Hindu Gods and Buddha. The people greet you with a smile and “Namaste” or “Hari Om” as you pass by. In the communities of both Rishikesh and Dharamsala, the people are devoted to enhancing and supporting the spiritual development of others. They honor the traditions of the ancients and are steadfast in their beliefs of meditation as the path to enlightenment and liberation. India, it is usually said, is not a country, but a continent. Stretching from the ingrained peaks of the Himalayas to the tropical greenery of Kerala, its broad borders pledges an excellent range of cultures, peoples, and landscapes.
