Current day popular yoga has degenerated into little more than a fitness and beauty cult. But this isn’t the real purpose of yoga. Rather, yoga is a transformative fire. Yoga is a fire that incinerates all of our false identifications, attachments, confusions, and false beliefs. Yoga corrects our perception; it lights our vision. The goal of Yoga is to purify the mind to directly experience Truth.
This fire doesn’t burn on its own. We need to feed it.
It is focused, sincere, consistent, appropriate practice—over a long time—that feeds the fire and keeps it going.
