I am so inspired by what I’m about to share in this column, that I have given my life’s work to it. It is such a magnificent embodiment of the meaning of yoga, and from the bottom of my heart, I hope that you will be a part of it too.
As you may know, the word Yoga literally means to yoke, to join, a union or a coming together. There are hundreds of millions of us practicing yoga worldwide. Imagine what would happen if we came together for one common goal.
That vision has inspired us at Parvati.org to launch YOGIS UNITE. It is a chance for everyone to be part of something spectacular: a global movement to save lives, protect homes and amplify peace.
The world is now deeply agitated. Every day, we are seeing record breaking temperatures, devastating wildfires, catastrophic storms, unrelenting droughts and floods. With a heating planet comes growing water and food crises. All life on Earth is at risk. But we can change this.
MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, is a simple and effective solution to prevent massive global suffering. It protects our planet’s air conditioning system, the Arctic ice. It stabilizes weather, safeguards life, and compels a global shift to renewable energies for the collective good.
I am dedicating all my music, yoga and words to MAPS. But, the beautiful thing about MAPS is that it is so much bigger than any one person. Through YOGIS UNITE, yoga enthusiasts of all kinds, everywhere, can play a role for a healthy world by becoming ambassadors for MAPS, each in their own way.
Parvati Magazine will give you updates every month here about the inspired action taking place through YOGIS UNITE. We will feature yoga luminaries talking about MAPS and how yogis can make a difference for a peaceful and prosperous world.
We know from our yoga and meditation practices that everything is interconnected and every moment counts. To be a part of Yogis Unite, please visit yogisunitemaps.org. Sign and share the petition. Become a MAPS ambassador. Get involved. Join the growing global movement.
Let’s show the world what yoga is about. Together, we can create the world’s largest peace sanctuary.
