Key Teaching of Integral Yoga – September 2016

Key Teachings   |   September 1, 2016  |   by  Sri Swami Satchidananda

“Can you imagine a life that’s always the same? Imagine that you would be always peaceful, always eating the same, doing the same things, smiling at everybody. Then there would be no excitement, no adventure in life! If people could climb Everest without risks, without sliding down, it wouldn’t be an adventure. If with every one step they slipped down ten steps, then they’d have a challenge. Life is to challenge you with its ups and downs. Ride over them without losing your balance. The purpose of the world is for that.”

~H.H. Sri Swami Satchidananda
