Who doesn’t love going to see a movie? If a film is good (always the hope!), we end up feeling the pain, the joy, or even the horror of the actors on screen. We empathize completely. Intellectually, we understand that the movie isn’t real, but we allow ourselves to be absorbed by the world of the film anyhow.
I’ve come to think of lentils as a loyal friend. You know, the type who’s by your side in a pinch. Helps you dig through the sale bins for a new yoga top. And most importantly, makes you feel beautiful inside and out.
This post is the first in a series that introduces Alan Finger’s forthcoming book, The Yoga Sutras Through a Tantric Lens, an interpretation of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali through the prism of ISHTA Tantra. Each week, we will post one sutra from the book paired with Alan’s phenomenal photography and a little commentary… just enough to whet your appetite.
