Hey everyone, My mission is to use my art as a tool to promote the teaching of ahimsa (non-harming from the Hindu tradition). To me it is the essence of yoga: to learn how to not harm others and live in a more peaceful, sustainable way. Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh said, "Ahimsa means not to harm other beings in thought, word, and deed. There can be no yoga without ahimsa." I must emphasize that it is a practice. It does not happen overnight. While I am deeply aligned with the mystical traditions of the East, I am not directly affiliated with any organization because yoga is not about being a part of a group or taking a yoga class. Yoga is about the practice of ahimsa in the context of all your daily interactions. It all comes back to your practice.

Kalidas believes that sustainability begins with the individual. We should consider a move from mass consumption
to using as little plastic, gas, and meat consumption as possible to more eco-friendly alternatives.
