The Aim of Yoga
If your friends laugh at you and say, ‘With Yoga you are just running away from the world; you are not going to enjoy anything,’ tell them, ‘We are the people who are going to enjoy it best because we are working to bring everything under our control. We don’t want to be controlled by anything. We want to be masters of our tongues and our eyes. We won’t be slaves to our desires.’ This is the aim of Yoga.
