So what is it about this chaotic; overpopulated, dirty, diseased and heavily polluted country that makes it so great or not so great then?
Any blog Takers?
My belief is that the answer lies in the great juxtaposing contrasts this country is always readily demonstrating. Especially towards the diversity and paradox of life itself. Since historical times India has had the ability to be so inclusive of all people; and so adaptive and flowing amidst what appears on the outside sometimes as seemingly anarchy. And yet this flow of life moves along with so much steady faith and focus for the values of tradition and spiritual stability. Thus we may learn very evidently in India, Yoga is not simply about flexibility of the body; but also our flexibility of the mind and adaptability to the natural order of our context and surrounding environment.
(On the other hand of course; there is the corrupt officials, thieves, blatant liars and the business oriented who are discarding tradition for the fashionable market of western language; clothing and dollar mentality).
