The Dude and Yoga

The Abide Guide, page 216, in its chapter "Some Kind of Yoga" explains Yoga poses, also called Asanas. The descriptions are very enlightening. The chapter starts like this:

"If you squint a little, the Dude looks like a wise old Asian sage: robe, sandals, logn hair, and a goatee. The robe may be polyester (we own an exact replica), the sandals plastic (got those too), and the goatee a few shades paler than you find in China, but perhaps down deep he carries the soul of Lao Tzu with him. Or, at least, a low-rent Alan Watts".

We are told that we should be, and probably are, lightly familiar with Eastern philosophies and practices. We are also told that the Dude manages to mix a bit of West with his East. For instance, he will have a book on Japanese cooking on his coffee table besides a hamburger wrapper.

So, our mind is set for Yoga, our Western mind meeting our Eastern one. There are quite a few Dude Asanas:

- The Spacing Out Asana
- The Toilet Seat Asana
- The Bowling Argument Asana
- The Take it Easy Chair Asana
- The Peaceful Warrior Asana
- The Rugasana
- The Fuggedaboutit Asana
- The Dead In The Water Asana
- The Barasana
- The Gutterballet Asana
- The Deeply Casual Asana
- The Abideasana

For the ones of you who are already a bit familiar with Dudeism, you will have noticed that these Asanas are in direct relation with the beliefs of our Church. I will, as time goes by, explain some of the fundamental teaching and connect them with the Asanas.

As you know, the word easy is important in Dudeism. And it is my firm intention to propagate the sense of this wonderful and great movement. By my upbringing, I am not afraid of hardship and hard work but I have reached the stage where I appreciate "easiness" and taking things cool.

I do abide, thanks to the help of "The Abide Guide". And I will be happy the day I know that my fellow brethren of this world will be able to do so too. So, this book will help me to spread the knowledge.

And it will be easy to do so. The Arch Dude of the Church of the Latter-Day Dude has authorised that I can use selected sentences, with my comments, from the guide to spread the word.


Be Guided to Abide

One can talk a lot. In particular when it comes to let you know about Dudeism.You will learn about it from many instances and, of course, from me. But again, one should never stress and so I will not.

The founders of the Church of the Latter-Day Dude  and their top disciples have written a book which is a profound guide to get salvation from this stressed out, uptight world: The Abide Guide. This book can give you answer for everything. It covers many issues and they are put in a systematic and thematic way:

- Secrets of sacred Dudeist practices
- The Seven Spiritual Laws of Taking it Easy
- Great Dudes who changed the world (without really trying)
- New feminist philosophy for special ladies
- The Way of the Dude applied to politics, ethics and finances
- A 12.step program for personal dudevolution
- The science of really tying your room togeter

and much more. Once you are familiar with the content, your will be close to living like Lebowski, the man who sparked the whole "thing" with the movie "The Big Lebowski".

That's it for today.

The Start of the Beginning

Fellow people of this world. This blog is entirely dedicated to the teachings of the Church of the Latter-Day Dude. It will have tits and bits from a variety of books, pamphlets and other writings from eminent Priests of the Church, followers of Dudeism and myself.

Entries and posts will come as I get inspiration and I will not get stressed. Because I am convinced follower of our credo:
