Yoga Principle #2: Be Honest

 

Be truthful in your actions, thoughts, and speech. Tell the truth. Be yourself.  Be true to you.

 

 

Avoid: dishonesty/lying, deception, manipulation, holding grudges, pretending to be someone else, not 

 

being honest with yourself

 

 

Practice: giving constructive feedback, forgiveness, non judgment, assertiveness, owning your own 

 

feelings and behavior, honesty, being true to yourself

 

 

 

Example #1: You are at your friend’s house after school and he offers you his homework to copy. 

 

Though it would certainly be easier, it would also be dishonest and so you choose to do the assignment 

 

yourself.
