Books, Lessons and Newsletters
    (espanol tambien)

    A variety of free or low cost materials on Yoga and Mindfulness
    are available.  They are sent directly to family members, prison
    libraries and inmates.  Although these resources do not
    necessarily reflect what we do or think, they can be a great
    support. Here are a few:

    Human Kindness Foundation  Box 61619, Durham, NC 27715

    Meditation Lessons   SYDA Prison Project, Box 99140, Emoryville,
    CA 94662

    “You may think
    that only you
    are a prisoner,
    but other people
    are also prisoners.

    You are in a small prison,
    but others are in
    the big prison outside.
    When will they be released?

    Think that you are a yogi
    and that you are pursuing
    your sadhana
    in this particular place and
    at this particular moment.

    Immediately, you will
    experience great joy.

    If you change your
    understanding, you will
    be free in a minute.”

    ~ Baba Muktananda
