Quotes on Yoga



Share this page:

Day after day, let the yogi practice the stilling of the mind, in a secret place, in deep seclusion, master of his thoughts, hoping for nothing, desiring nothing. Let him find a place that is pure and a pose that is restful... In that place let him rest and practice yoga for the purification of the soul; with his mind and prana [vital energy] stilled, let him be silent before the One.
-- Bhagavad Gita

Undisturbed calmness of mind is attained by cultivating friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and indifference toward the wicked.
-- Patanjali, Yoga Sutras

Anyone who practices can obtain success in yoga but not one who is lazy.  Constant practice alone is the secret of success.
-- Hatha Yoga Pradipita
