"Yoga is a science, not a sport or a game. Yoga by its nature never teaches competition. Competition means that one is always comparing and contrasting to external measures. Yoga instills integration, enrichment and incomparable inner strength. With these, yogis master life. Mastery gives fulfillment and fulfillment stops one from dependence on these external measures."
Bhagavan Shri Shanmukha Anantha Natha
