Brad

In this podcast, Swami Tommy talks about one of the most influential pictures taken in history. It is not a pretty picture. It is a picture pointing out the harsh reality of social injustice and the acts that sometimes need to be taken to wake people up to feel the truth that great suffering exists everywhere.

In the niyama of self-study, we are called to get real and keep it real. If we are not real, we suffer and that suffering ripples out to others. The idea here is this: the more real we are with ourselves, the more compassionate we can be with others. And from a place of deep compassion and pure truth power, we can usher in changes that address social injustices directly and peacefully.
