Yoga has changed my view of generosity. I’ve learned to give without expectation and to always remain mindful of the quality of my generosity. After all, generosity in yoga is based partly on two of the five Yamas:
- Generosity is the opposite of taking (Asteya), whereby we share freely with a focused, quality effort.
- A generous person sees life through a prism of abundance instead of scarcity. In yoga this is known as Aparigraha: there is enough for everyone.
