Sayings of Krishnamacharya

Teach what is inside you.
Not as it applies to you, to yourself,
but as it applies to the other.

Master your breath, let the self be in bliss, contemplate on the sublime within you.

Nowadays, the practice of yoga stops with just asanas. Very few even attempt dharana and dhyana (deeper meditation) with seriousness. There is a need to search once more and re-establish the practice and value of yoga in modern times.

In the practice of Yoga one can emphasize the body, the mind or the self and hence the effort can never be fruitless.

No one is wise by birth, for wisdom results from one own’s efforts.

Where is the delusion when truth is known? Where is the disease when the mind is clear? Where is death when the Breath is controlled? Therefore surrender to Yoga.

Knowing all objects to be impermanent, don’t let their contact blind you, resolve again and again to be aware of the Self that is permanent.

Why do we need money beyond a point? If we are free of ill health, enmity, and debt, is that not enough? Too much money only leads to less peace.

Regulate the breath, be happy, link the mind with the Lord in your heart.

Inhale, and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation, and God remains with you. Exhale, and you approach God. Hold the exhalation, and surrender to God.

Never be in debt. Never reside near enemies. Never trap your body through disease. Never forget the Lord with his consort who resides in the heart.

Meditation results in marvels.

Let your speech be true and sweet.
