The crowd at AYNY for Saraswati and Sharath, plus Sanskrit e-books galore

Last night, Saraswati and Sharath lectured at Ashtanga Yoga New York. It was, as you might expect, a full house. Here’s a photo from the AYNY website:

Look a little deeper and you’ll find that Eddie Stern knocked out three new blog posts, including about the story — which I think we briefly rolled into something, as well — about the White House embracing yoga as a non-religious, or at least non-specifically spiritual — physical practice. He also found a wonderful photo from the Guardian in the U.K. of Orthodox Jews practicing yoga in Israel that further illustrates the point that yoga isn’t necessarily a Hindu religious activity:

But what I really want to highlight is the site Eddie links to with Sanskrit e-books, including Shakespeare and the Bible as well as Sanskrit primers and other books with English translations. You know, for all of us who can read Sanskrit. But if you’re among those who can, this seems like a great resource.
