"Come to the waters of yoga and drink from its nectar--
whether it be asanas, pranayama, mudra, mantra, philosophy,
self-inquiry, satsang, meditation or all of the above.
These various practices will increase and direct the life force,
prana, to bring about the union of body, mind and spirit." ...Kali Ray
