Everyaspect of our life has a part to play in the greater ecological system, MichaelStone explains in this book. How do we bring this large view to our yogapractice? According to Stone, our responsibility as human beings is to live ina sustainable and respectful way. He says two things need to change. First, weneed to understand the relationship between our actions and the effects of ouractions. Second, once we see the effect of our actions in the human andnon-human world, we need practical skills for learning how to make changes.

Using the five principles (yama) described in the Yoga-Sutraattributed to Patanjali, Michael Stone offers a basis for rethinking ethicalaction and the spiritual path.
