“Breath is the king of mind.”
B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Yoga
“Love begets courage, moderation creates abundance and humility generates power.”
B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Yoga
“Happy is the man who knows how to distinguish the real from the unreal, the eternal from the transient and the good from the pleasant by his discrimination and wisdom. Twice blessed is he who knows true love and can love all God's creatures. He who works selflessly for the welfare of others with love in his heart is thrice blessed. But the man who combines within his mortal frame knowledge, love and selfless service is holy and becomes a place of pilgrimage.”
B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Yoga
“The seeker should have faith in himself and in his master. He should have faith that God is ever by his side and that no evil can touch him. As faith springs up in the heart it dries out lust, ill-will, mental sloth, spiritual pride and doubt, and the heart freed from these hindrances becomes serene and untroubled.”
B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Yoga
“The yogi uses all his resources - physical, economic, mental or moral - to alleviate the pain and suffering of others. He shares his strength with the weak until they become strong. He shares his courage with those who are timid until they become brave by his example. He denies the maxim 'survival of the fittest', but makes the weak strong enough to survive. He comes a shelter to one and all.”
B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Yoga
“The mind (manas) and the breath (prana) are intimately connected and the activity or the cessation of activity of one affects the other.”
B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Yoga
“Ignorance has no beginning, but it has an end. There is a beginning but no end to knowledge.”
B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Yoga
