In this short Dharma talk, Anjali Rao offers thoughts on the word activism and the larger context of our current world and the inequities we're witnessing—with so much to unravel and unpack, to understand and observe, we might be wondering what our roles are and how we might be able to start to make a difference. What's more, many of us might be wondering what the connection is between yoga and activism. The truth is that yoga and activism have always been linked. Watch this brief video to hear Anjali's speak on the history of this connection.
