Return to Book Page. Preview — Yoga and Vegetarianism by Sharon Gannon. Ingrid Newkirk Foreword. Drawing on both the author's extensive studies of Vedic traditions and her longtime interest in animal rights, Yoga and Vegetarianism shows how the physical and spiritual practice of yoga is historically and structurally tied to a vegetarian lifestyle.

When they are used in tandem, she argues, they form a strong framework for physical and spiritual attunement and promote an overall healthy life. Yoga and Vegetarianism emphasizes the importance of understanding of Ahimsa, the practice of non-harming and nonviolence, as the first step in marrying yoga and vegetarianism.
All actions, says Gannon, originate as thoughts, so the "perfection of action" that yoga strives for must come from a perfect thought. What is a perfect thought? According to the book, it is a thought free of selfish desire, anger, and hate. This brings us back to Ahimsa and to vegetarianism. Freeing oneself of needless cruelty, harm, and injustice — which includes eating meat — can transform both the individual and the world.

The author comments again and again that eating milk products or eggs is no different at all to eating meat and so veganism is the only ethical choice no ma I read this book a few weeks after finishing 'The Yoga of Eating: Transcending Diets and Dogma to Nourish the Natural Self' by Charles Eisenstein.
The author comments again and again that eating milk products or eggs is no different at all to eating meat and so veganism is the only ethical choice no matter what. The title of the book is misleading. Parts of the book are very condescending and self righteous. This book presents a very black and white and enormously simplistic view which claims that the only ethical way to eat is vegan.
But there is no more depth of information here than you'd see on any vegan websites homepage. The level of research done seems very superficial. The persuasion is almost all guilt based and emotive rather than fact based. It is a bit like reading an infotainment health magazine rather than a book.
What few facts are included are almost all wrong as well. For example, it is claimed that Eskimos with their high fat and meat diets, have very short life spans and are far more prone than most to heart disease and osteoporosis. But this is false. The traditional Eskimo diet has long been shown to confer superior health. Where problems occur is when these traditional foods are combined with heavily processed foods that are high in carbohydrate or low in nutrients or both, including refined grain products.
Such a diet isn't a healthy one, but it is also no longer at all what can accurately be described as the traditional Eskimo diet either. So the author is really fudging the facts here in a big way. It is very misleading. It is also claimed that eating the vegan or even vegetarian way is 'timeless wisdom' and 'ancient truths' yet actually this is a very recent phenomenon, and not something that traditional cultures have ever adopted by choice as studies of traditional cultures have shown.
The author seems determined to ignore all the wisdom of the past in favour of fashionable new ideas. The importance of eating fat and organs such as the liver in traditional cultures is ignored entirely. The traditional ways of preparing foods to make them safer and healthier to eat are ignored by the author in favour of modern and less healthy methods. Nowhere does this book talk about the huge importance of soaking grains, nuts and seeds before you eat them to get rid of enzyme inhibitors.
Nowhere does this book talk about how short a period of time humans have been eating grains in large amounts and that our genes are not yet adapted to such a change and so this can cause big problems for many people. To get so many facts wrong isn't good but an even bigger problem is everything that this book leaves out, and it is a lot. Nowhere is it talked about the huge negative impact eating lots of soy products can have on people, and especially, very young people and babies. No warnings on soy are given at all, which is irresponsible.
Drinking lots of soy milk is hardly based on 'ancient wisdom' as few products are as allergenic, hormone and enzyme disrupting and heavily processed as soy milk. See 'The Real Soy Story' for more about soy. The real need humans have for fat in the diet is also ignored in favour of embracing the modern low-fat fad.
The problems with a vegan diet and B12 level are also skipped over, although the book does at least recommend a basic supplement regime at the end in a casual non-essential way. Nowhere is it talked about what devastation to the planet, ecosystems and all the different animals that are part of an ecosystem when these ecosystems are destroyed to make way for soy or wheat crops.
All the animals that die when these crops are planted and harvested are not mentioned. Nor are all the tons of pesticides used on these crops while they are grown and when they are later stored in silos and what a huge negative impact this has on our health and the health of the planet.
This is discussed in depth in the wonderful book 'The Vegetarian Myth' by Lierre Keith, which also discusses how a vegan diet destroyed the health of the author. Compare this book to 'The Yoga of Eating' by Charles Eisenstein and you can't help but me amazed by the complete lack of ego and smugness that pervades every part of this lesser book. It is apples and oranges.
Eisenstein also takes a much deeper look at the research behind what makes up a genuinely healthy diet and how yoga can be brought into every part of life. This is a book that contains genuine ancient wisdom and deep thought. It honours the wisdom of previous generations, traditional methods of food preparation and also tells us to listen to the inherent wisdom of the body in telling us what it is best to eat.
It explains that ethical eating and healthy eating plus the committed practice of yoga is not synonymous with a vegan or vegetarian diet, although commercially farmed meats, milk and eggs should always be strictly avoided. We can all choose to eat how we would like to eat but I would urge anyone that feels unwell on a vegan diet after a few months or years to take what your body is telling you seriously, so that you don't end up with irreversible health problems.
Read some or all of the high quality books listed above which are real health and healing books. A vegan diet has very different health consequences to a well put together vegetarian one. It is serious stuff healthwise and in fact not a healthy diet or a diet that the human body is designed for at all, as this book irresponsibly claims.
It is vastly superior in every way and a far more enlightening read. View 2 comments. May 18, Karli rated it liked it. It was another worthwhile book in my discovery into the word of vegetarianism.
For me the strongest arguments for vegetarian are environmental reasons and the author certainly does dedicate a section of her book to this. Nor do I really take to the argument that if I eat meat in this life, I may come back as a dairy cow the next time around. And that we must speak our truth and live it on all levels. I liked her chapter on Greed, Excess and Poverty as this really touches on the environmental issues for me. Overall it was a worthwhile book about being a vegetarian and I can see the connection to yoga on a practical level Jul 01, Vanessa rated it did not like it.
Jun 20, Grace Dadoyan rated it it was amazing. An excellent, thought-provoking and concise book about the reasons to consider a vegan diet.

Donnalynn: You've been involved in many special vegan endeavors over the years, but what made you decide to develop your own cookbook? Sharon Gannon: When I moved to Woodstock, NY in I found myself for the first time with a house, which enabled me to entertain friends and family — so I started to cook for them. When it was decided that dinner was a success, I wrote down the recipe. A cookbook is definitely a procedure manual. I spend most of my time writing these days and currently have many books in the works.

Read Yoga And Vegetarianism The Path To Greater Health And Happiness By Sharon Gannon Online
In Yoga and Veganism, Sharon Gannon—co-creator of the renowned Jivamukti Yoga method—weaves together a compelling exploration of the intersection between the spiritual practice of yoga, physical health, care for the planet, and a peaceful coexistence with other animals and nature. Through clear and accessible language, Gannon unpacks the wisdom of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, one of the oldest and most revered texts focused on the philosophy of yoga, and draws a fascinating course to greater enlightenment for the contemporary practitioner. With yama, or restraint, the Yoga Sutras outline the first step on the path to spiritual liberation through five ethical principles that help guide our relationships with the world around us: Ahimsa teaches us how to avoid personal suffering through not harming others, while satya reveals how telling the truth allows us to be better listened to.

ГЛАВА 10 - Энсей Танкадо мертв? - Сьюзан почувствовала подступившую к горлу тошноту. - Вы его убили. Вы же сказали… - Мы к нему пальцем не притронулись, - успокоил ее Стратмор. - Он умер от разрыва сердца. Сегодня утром звонили из КОМИНТа. Их компьютер через Интерпол засек имя Танкадо в регистратуре полиции Севильи.
Мидж налила себе стакан воды, надеясь, что это поможет ей успокоиться. Делая маленькие глотки, она смотрела в окно. Лунный свет проникал в комнату сквозь приоткрытые жалюзи, отражаясь от столешницы с затейливой поверхностью. Мидж всегда думала, что директорский кабинет следовало оборудовать здесь, а не в передней части здания, где он находился. Там открывался вид на стоянку автомобилей агентства, а из окна комнаты для заседаний был виден внушительный ряд корпусов АНБ - в том числе и купол шифровалки, это вместилище высочайших технологий, возведенное отдельно от основного здания и окруженное тремя акрами красивого парка.
