Jack London Yoga

Take a look at this very interesting blog on linda’s yoga journey:


Here was my response.  Do you know the answer?

“I have become fascinated recently by influence of Yoga on writers, particularly the “American Trancendentalists”–Whitman, Emerson, and Thoreau. I was so surprised to seeing their references to the Gita and Upanishads in their writing. I just didn’t notice that when I studied them as an English major.

Now here is Jack London, sounding like he just stepped out of an Upanishad himself. Now I have to go figure out whether he, too, was steeped in Eastern wisdom, or is just an example of one of my personal favorite themes–the universality of Yoga philosophy?

Perhaps you already know the answer.

In any case, thanks for the enjoyable intellectual provocation.”
