Padmasana: The Lotus Pose (1978)

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Mahatma Gandhi

At The Yokohama Friendship Bell - 2I found some old photos of me meditating in the lotus pose, way back when I was 20, I believe (circa 1978).

It’s amazing how I was doing the yoga even way back then… a lot of water under the bridge.

Somewhere along the road of life perhaps I lost my way with regards to yoga, and then I found it again.

Now I recall I was pretty hardcore about my Eastern Philosophical endeavors. I even attended Puji Festivals put on by the Hare Krishnas. But I was never really satisfied with any one religion. I was always questioning things like I am now, even still.
