Ashtanga yoga: the road that crosses ignorance

I stumbled across this blog post written by Carlos Fernandez de Castor in March 2012 about practicing in Mysore. It’s poetic, whimsical and deeply devotional – I don’t have much to add except that dedicated practice is not just exercise! I’m reminded of the Buddhist saying, Before enlightenment: chop wood and carry water. After enlightenment: chop wood and carry water.

Have faith and keep up your practice. There is much wood to chop and a lot of water to carry! Happy reading

Carlos has also taken some lovely travel photos.
