Yogic Wisdom

  • “Inhale, and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation, and God remains with you. Exhale, and you approach God. Hold the exhalation, and surrender to God.” ⏤ Krishnamacharya
  • “The root cause of all disturbances in life is the constant modification of the mind. If you can calm the mind, you can establish a kingdom of peace.” ⏤ Swami Kripalu
  • “Many students of yoga perform their exercise in a haphazard way; then wonder why they do not 'get anywhere' and why they fail to feel communion with the Infinite even after apparently serious meditation.” ⏤ Paramahansa Yogananda
  • “Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.” ⏤ Mahatma Gandhi
