March Philosophy: Asteya

2018 marks B.K.S. Iyengar’s Centennial. We continue our celebration through our monthly philosophical insights. The theme for March is Asteya or Non-Stealing.

In Light on Life Guruji writes: “Non-stealing, or not misappropriating what rightly belongs to others (asteya), is the third Yama. As children, we learn not to take or steal other toys, but non-stealing has many implications. Do we not steal when we consume more than our share? Is it not stealing that a small portion of the world’s population consumes the vast majority of its resources?”

In the video below, Tori Milner, Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher and faculties Member at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York and Brooklyn, reflects onĀ Asteya.
