Any belief, whatever it is, is counterproductive in the context of the practice of yoga. One holds a belief instead of knowing.

When supreme knowledge comes through the practice of yoga, you will know. Do not be satisfied with believing – Gregor Maehle

What if our religion was each other, If our practice was our life, If prayer were our words;
What if the temple was the Earth, If forests were our church, If holy water the rivers, lakes, and ocean;
What if meditation was our relationships, If the teacher was life, If wisdom was self-knowledge, If love was the center of our being – Ganga White

    Hello, Kanchan
    Your yoga quotes collection is very good. I appreciate that. But I think the ordering the quotes are biased. Not according to merits of the quotes. More over you have written the name of B.K.S. Iyengar as K.S. Iyengar which is wrong. He is one of the most respected yogi. I think Swami Vivekananda’s quote is out of the context. It looks odd. Otherwise it is a very good work. Thanks, Arnav
