We can all relate to eating from a paper bag in the car during rush-hour traffic or gobbling down a snack bar while running to catch the train.

The last day of school used to mark my favorite day of the year (second to my birthday, of course). On a humid mid-June afternoon, with the shrill ring of the final dismissal bell, my daily regime of studies would dissolve like a Popsicle on hot pavement.

The Courage to Feel, Matthew Sanford on Yoga, Disability, and Mending the Mind - Body Relationship
By Sara Avant Stover
On a cold and misty Sunday afternoon in 1978 Matthew Sanford and his family were driving home from a Thanksgiving weekend in Kansas City, Missouri. Matthew, then thirteen, was asleep in the backseat when their car crossed a bridge, skidded on a patch of ice, and toppled down a steep embankment. Three and half days later, he woke up from a coma to learn that his life as he had known it was over. Both his father and sister were dead and he was paralyzed from the chest down.
iHanumanHappy New Year Friends! Thank you for supporting us during our first year! We believe it was very successful and that 2008 will only bring more good fortune. We are starting the New Year with a satsang we recorded at the end of 2007 with Shantimayi. Satsang can be translated as "in the community of truth." What better way to start the New Year!
