The Yoga Comic stops traffick. This Saturday March 9th:
One meaning of yoga is “to come together,” “to unite” and one of the eight limbs of yoga is yama, or our relationships with the outside world.
Within yama is ahimsa, which means non-violence towards others, including working to end violence.
Ahimsa means kindness, compassion and thoughtful consideration of others. It also includes our duties and responsibilities.
As yoga practitioners (or even those of us who are new to the asana practice), we can practice the true concept of yoga by coming together and practicing ahimsa just by getting on the mat and supporting Odanadi’s amazing work.
Over the past 20 years Odanadi Seva Trust has rescued and rehabilitated more than 1850 children, carried out 57 brothel raids and brought 137 traffickers to justice. With your help, compassion and cooperation, Odanadi will continue to provide a place of sanctuary for the survivors of human trafficking and offer them a chance to rebuild their lives.
