The fact that a belief or a behavior is long-held does not make it inherently just, or even right. Consider for example, the fact that men have been raping women for thousands of years. Does this mean that such behavior is normal and should be allowed to continue? We are fortunate enough to live in an era in which human beings have come to recognize rape as a crime. A yogi investigates all long-standing habits and behaviors, even they have been seemingly in place forever, and and asks: « Is this activity necessary now? Does it bring me or the world closer to enlightenment or peace? – Sharon Gannon , Excerpt from Yoga & Vegetarianism
