"To be healthy, mentally and physically, one must know the body - mind complex, its needs and requirements, just as a car requires a good driver as well as servicing, oiling, petrol, grease, tyre adjustments and so on. People are sick because they do not know their bodies and minds, what they need and how to keep them properly. Yoga is designed to help us to maintain this body-mind vehicle in top running condition for as long as possible, so that life can be joyful, free and fulfilling." From "The effects of Yoga on Hypertension" by Dr Swami Shankardevananda. Yoga Publications Trust, Mungar, Bihar, India. First published 1978.
