Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

There is deep, deep within each one of us this feeling 'I am so and so' and that has to be shaken.
Yoga enables us to recognize the psychological, social, religious and national barriers, and recognize them for what they are.
If we recognize that an unhealthy life-style is endangering our life, then it will drop away.
If we recognize that the psychological barriers we erect within ourselves, with an external polished behavior for the public and an internal nature hidden even from ourselves, are a danger to our peace of mind and happiness, they will drop away.
In the same way too, we will know that the religious and national barriers that we have put up, in the false hope of ensuring our security and prosperity, do in fact promote their opposite.
Then these too will drop away from our consciousness.
