In our modern world, there is so much attention placed on our outer appearance. Vast sums of time and money are spent on our looks.
Our true beauty is far beyond these external appearances.
Beneath the physical surface, "We are beings of Light, bright beings, devas, whose consciousness-energies have congealed into material forms." Swami Veda Bharati, from Kundalini: Stilled or Stirred?, Pp. 114.
Do you believe this? How would your life be different if you knew this was true?
Yoga is a method to verify the truth of this statement. It may take years or a lifetime to do so, but it would be time well spent.
