Prayer of the Yogini or Yogi
I simply came on a sunny morning in December. I came while practicing yoga. And here, on the occasion of the Solstice, which we regard as marking the end and the beginning of each year, I offer, if it is to any reader of comfort or interest, this prayer of the Yogi or the Yogini. He writes. Joaquín G. Weil.

Thanks to the hands. I ask force for them in the goodness of actions. Help, is told to "lend a hand". The human being, who humbly uses his hands. Equal arms and shoulders.
Thanks to our intestines and organs. Give them fair and healthy food to keep you healthy and happy. We eat that meal with gratitude and conscience, and that we know to share it with joy.
