"The Buddha asked the sitar player, 'How do you tune your sitar?' The player told him, 'Not to tight and not to loose.' The Buddha said, 'Do the same with your practice.'"

-Hakim Tafari

The final part in my trilogy of conversations with Hakim Tafari is the perfect dovetail to our scope of examinations. There is a certain allure and fascination that we can all have with spirituality and delving within, but what about the other aspects of life? Today Hakim and I explore living the vegan lifestyle, music, compassion, and the interplay amongst all three. These three topics are all individually vital and together they build a beautiful picture of our trails. Please enjoy this conversation on fueling our body as a temple and machine, on the significance of music, and on finding compassion for those that we can easily hate.
