Yoga was born on the battlefield. Contrary to popular western belief—yoga is neither about universal peace nor non-violence –rather, it is about duty and great spiritual sacrifice. Our tank features a cropped raw arm hole, racerback, side-seamed tear away label. As you wear this;
We invite you to meditate on these words of Krishna to Arjuna during one of ancient India’s great and perilous civil wars:
“Considering your duty, you should not vacillate. For a WARRIOR nothing is higher than a WAR against EVIL. The WARRIOR confronted with such a WAR should be PLEASED. Arjuna, for it COMES as an OPEN GATE to HEAVEN. But if you do not PARTICIPATE in this BATTLE against EVIL, you will INCUR SIN, violating YOUR DUTY and YOUR HONOR.
The story of YOUR DISHONOR will be REPEATED endlessly; and for Man of HONOR, DISHONOR is WORSE than DEATH. These BRAVE WARRIORS will think you have withdrawn from battle out of COWARDICE, and those who formally esteemed YOU will TREAT YOU WITH DISRESPECT. YOU ENEMIES will RIDICULE your STRENGTH and SAY things that should not be said. What can be more painful than this?
Death means the attainment of heaven; VICTORY means the enjoyment of earth. Therefore RISE UP, Arjuna, resolved to FIGHT! Having made yourself alike in pain and pleasure, profit and loss, victory and defeat, engage in this great Battle and YOU WILL BE FREED FROM SIN.
~ The Bhagavad Gita
