Yogash chitta-vritti-nirodhah

“When the body is still, you will find great joy and confidence. Learn to enjoy that stillness. No matter what joys you have experienced so far, the highest of all joys is stillness.”

“The best of all knowledge, the greatest of all powers, comes from silence.”

“Sometimes I feel with all my profundity as though a breath of the infinite world of stars and endless space has touched me.”

“The voice of the conscience comes from silence.”

“Physical stillness and a serene breath will help you to become aware of the finer forces within.”
