truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied. Aadil Palkhivala

know and be who we already are. Rolf Gates

Any belief, whatever it is, is counterproductive in the context of the practice of yoga. One holds
a belief instead of knowing. For example, you wouldnt say you believe in your right ear, since
you know your ear, no belief is required. Believing always excludes knowing. When jnana
(supreme knowledge) comes through the practice of yoga, you will know. Do not be satisfied
with believing. Gregor Maehle
