Can Yoga Bear It?

Karen: If some of the devotees of yoga are opposed to expressions of self-interest, why would they expect anyone — themselves included — to engage in such exercises? Are they “altruistically” sacrificing their bodies and energies to some “higher cause” and, if so, what purpose might that be? If they should discover that all human action is driven by the pursuit of self-interest, will they abandon yoga?
