A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on spirituality and yoga

Yoga in Mayfair or Fifth Avenue, or in any other place which is on the telephone, is a spiritual fake.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on morality, victory, welfare, and yoga

Wherever there is Krishna, the lord of yoga, and Arjuna, the archer, I think, there will surely be, victory, welfare and morality.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on food, heart, pain, sacrifice, suffering, and yoga

Whatever you do, make it an offering to me - the food you eat, the sacrifices you make, the help you give, even your suffering. In this way you will be freed from the bondage of karma, and from its results both pleasant and painful. Then, firm in renunciation and yoga, with your heart free, you will come to me.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on birth, death, difficulty, eternity, faith, feeling, goals, good, love, meditation, mind, reality, senses, serenity, thought, work, worship, yoga, and path

Arguna: Of those steadfast devotees who love you and those who seek you as the eternal formless Reality, who are the more established in yoga? Krishna: Those who set their hearts on me and worship me with unfailing devotion and faith are more established in yoga. As for those who seek the transcendental Reality, without name, without form, contemplating the Unmanifested, beyond the reach of thought and of feeling, with their senses subdued and mind serene and striving for the good of all beings, they too will verily come unto me. Yet hazardous and slow is the path to the Unrevealed, difficult for physical man to tread. But they for whom I am the supreme goal, who do all work renouncing self for me and meditate on me with single-hearted devotion, these I will swiftly rescue from the fragment's cycle of birth and death, for their consciousness has entered into me.
