To the casual observer, yoga seems like an odd mix of static positions that make no sense at all. But to the practitioner, yoga is the pathway to inner peace and harmony. As T. Guillemets said in one of the many Yoga quotes written, "A photographer gets people to pose for him. A yoga instructor gets people to pose for themselves." Through yoga, you learn to shed the pressures and stresses of the world and find a world within yourself where you experience blissful solitude. Yoga quotes help show the way, encouraging you to explore your inner self more deeply and rid yourself of the negativity that saps your strength, keeps you from focusing and holds you back from becoming more clear minded and more purposeful in your life.

Buddha was born into a luxurious life as an Indian prince. His name means "the Awakened One," and he eventually became the originator of Buddhism. At age 29 he began his search for the cure of humanity's sorrow through peace and harmony with everything and everyone. His concept of karma, that what we put into the universe comes back to us, is a fundamental teaching of Buddhism that is still well-known today. He is said to have attained enlightenment during long meditation under a Bodhi tree, at which point he became Buddha until the age of 80, when he died in Kushinagar. Buddha Quotes
