Light on Life
The Yoga Journey to Wholeness, Inner Peace, and Ultimate FreedomBook - 2005
"Fifty years after my first trip west," writes 86-year-old B. K. S. Iyengar, "I now wish to share with you the whole of the yoga journey. It is my profound hope that my end can be your beginning."In Light on Life, the world's leading teacher of yoga shows how we can transform ourselves by bringing yogic principles into all aspects of daily living.Hailed as "the Michelangelo of yoga" by the BBC and considered to be the most important living yoga master, B. K. S. Iyengar has spent much of his life introducing the modern world to the ancient practice of yoga. Yoga's popularity is soaring but has not been matched by an understanding of the emotional, intellectual and spiritual development that the tradition can offer. In Light on Life, Iyengar brings readers this new and more complete understanding of the yogic journey. He explores the yogic goal to integrate the body, emotions, mind and soul; the role that postures and breathing play in our search for wholeness; and how yoga can help us to live in harmony with the world. Written with the depth of this sage's great wisdom, Light on Life is the culmination of a master's life-long spiritual voyage.
