Yoga, which is a practice that originated in the Hindu tradition, speaks of two activities of the universe, karma (action) and dharma (purpose). Throughout our lives, we float in and out of alignment with these two, sometimes knowing who we are and what we should do, and sometimes not. In this evening’s lecture, we’ll talk about these concepts, and how social engagement can help to clarify our purpose and lead to positive action.
