Recent teaching with Swami Satyananda Saraswati

 “The infinite seeks itself. We will never be satisfied with the finite. In the finite there can be pleasure but not fulfillment. Only the infinity of our essence can fill us.”

“In the Hindu tradition, a text is not something that we read or study. In the traditional sense, knowing a text means experiencing it and becoming one with it.”

“We live in a civilization that has declined because it has lost heroism.”

“Yoga is not based on a series of practices and exercises, nor on an intellectual understanding. Yoga is an expanded state of consciousness that must be sustained.”

“Time and again the yogi enters spaces where the mental and sensory world no longer affect him; there he is free and does not depend on anything.”
