“Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived.”The purpose of this book is to reveal and restore the lost essence of yoga, to infuse contemporary yoga with its ancient and future message, the message of the heart. This book is a powerful guide for yogic living. Each page invites the mystery of your Spirit into everyday life. To read it is to ponder your life’s purpose, and explore ways to break out of limiting beliefs and conditioned responses to attain the freedom of your Self. It is designed to be a constant companion for all phases and aspects of life. Using language clear enough to reveal the obscure and neglected depths within each of us, Aadil distills a lifetime of practicing, teaching, and living yoga into ten inspiring chapters: Dharma, Wisdom, Truth, Integrity, Feeling, Respect, Balance, Bliss, Peace, and Love. In each chapter, Aadil reaches for timeless spiritual truths while simultaneously exploring ways to ground them in daily life. Vibrant quotations enliven the margins. A shorter essay addressed to teachers of yoga follows each main chapter. On every page, Aadil invites you to fully embody the vast potentials lying dormant within.
True yoga is not about the shape of vour body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed: it is to be lived. Yoga doesn't care about what you have been; it cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied.Aadil Palkhivala
