"The Word" is based on a presentation made by Dr. Daniel Kriegman at Brown University, October 27, 1998. In it, there are references to "saints." In Yoism, a saint could be, but is not necessarily an especially moral or well-behaved person. Rather, Yoan saints are people who have enabled us to understand more clearly (or to appreciate more fully) the mystery of Yo, i.e., those who have made major enhancements to our ability to thrive and enjoy the miracle of existence.
Even though, in The Word, only their first names are presented, most of you will be able to recognize many of them. Others, only some of you will recognize by name. That's OK. Their last names are not secrets, but for the fun of the challenge, you can try to see how many you recognize by their accomplishments or their words. For a list of their full names click here.
