“In Yoga asanas or in yogic breathing, one should never exert oneself. Always make sure you do the practices easily, without straining. That is a safe rule. There is no strenuous aspect in Yoga practices. In meditation, if you are going to fight with the mind, then the mind will become rather violent and it will threaten you. Then, whenever you sit for meditation the mind will revolt. So there is always an easy way of doing things, and we should not be hasty in our desire to get the real benefits. Let things come in their own time. Our duty is simply to do the practices continuously. If you do them slowly and steadily, you’ll win the race.
“God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi.”
