“Garuda, The Eagle Who Soared With Ahimsa”
In this story, Garuda an eagle who would normally eat other animals decides to practice ahimsa and treat others with love. He goes on a journey to find friendship and ends up finding joy, love, and laughter and sharing some important messages with his new found friends. The entire story can be acted out in a yoga class for children and photos of the poses accompany the book, so it makes a perfect gift for yoga lovers or teachers of children’s yoga.
I hope this book inspires wonderful conversation amongst children and their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, and care-givers, and I hope you enjoy it as much as my family has.
