mulling things over

Yoga Journal

Yoga Journal has been running an interview on the back page of each issue for a while now.  This issue’s interview is with Aadil Palkhivala.  Here’s my favorite part. Italics are mine.

Ninety percent of yoga asana is a waste of time. The asana must be done to prepare the body to hold the light of the soul.  Most people just want all of the stuff the ego likes: a firm body and ways to impress people.  We should be striving to find a real connection with the Divine.

I love that.
