Bringing Dharma to Forefront

Huffingtonpost: Bringing Dharma, Seva, Shakti and Yoga to the Political Forefront in America

As I watched the vice presidential debate last week I saw how comfortable we, as a nation, are about religion as part of the political and personal life. Both candidates discussed the impact of their faith in their life. How it shapes their policies. It was clear their faith identities....... My heritage is of modern, post-independent India, which has taught its people, particularly the Hindus, to be secular, especially in the public and political arena. "Keep religion out of politics" is the common mantra.

What if we all, those of eastern tradition and those inspired by it -- like the YogaVotes and SevaVotes community -- infused politics with the values, the dharma values that matter to all of us, help bring the practices of inclusivity, pluralism, valuing the divinity within all beings, compassionate action, non-violence, collaboration and unity to our country's highly partisan politics?
