In the old days though—in ancient India—yoga was meant to make our whole life successful. How yoga works this way is explained in cryptic lines from the mother of all yoga books: the Yoga Sutra, written almost 2,000 years ago by the Indian sage Patanjali. By taking some time to learn the deep but practical methods found in this ancient classic, we can learn to turn our yoga practice into something that radically changes not just our body, but every part of our life: relationships, finances, inner peace, peace in the world around us. We get both halves of yoga.
You must use kindness,
compassion, joy, and equanimity…
This practice makes the mind
bright and clear as pure water.
