Interview with the Monk arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge as we Occupy Raleigh

Occupy Raleigh and Occupy Wall St. are about a just society.  In yogic terms this means each individual and the societal institutions acting according to the yogic principles of Yama and Niyama.  Completely honoring these principles is not easy, but working toward it results in a society where everyone has basic needs met, has a job with a living wage, and has enough time to pursue spiritual development.  Here is Dada Pranakrsnananda describing what the Occupy movement is about for him.

Some people are saying the protesters are sort of confused or don’t know what they want.  But, they have identified what they don’t want.  And they do want to move toward a more just society.  A better place for all God’s children!
