Light on Life: The Yoga Journey to Wholeness, Inner Peace, and Ultimate Freedom

Light on Life: The Yoga Journey to Wholeness, Inner Peace, and Ultimate Freedom

B.K.S. Iyengar–hailed as “the Michelangelo of yoga” (BBC) and considered by many to be the most important living yoga master–has spent much of his life introducing the modern world to the ancient practice of yoga. Yoga’s popularity is soaring, but its widespread acceptance as an exercise for physical fitness and the recognition of its health benefits have not been matched by an understanding of the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development that the yogic tradition can also offer.

    For all of those on the path of yoga, October 11, 2005

    At 86 years old, BKS Iyengar has contributed much to the yoga world. Not only his prolific books, but also his style – which focuses on alignment and uses props. Almost every popular style of yoga today can thank Iyengar for helping to popularize this art. Now Iyengar has written a book that takes on a far more personal and conversational tone than previous works. Light On Life is a book that brings together all of Iyengar’s personal experiences and insights in his 70+ years as a yoga practitioner.

    This is a fantastic book whether you practice Iyengar style yoga or not. I picked it up a few weeks ago and took my time reading through it. There is a tremendous amount of insight here and one needs to digest it slowly.

    This book blends Iyengar’s life story along with wisdom and philosophy. You will come away from this book with a clear idea of what the yoga journey is all about. I recently had the good fortune of being able to hear Iyengar speak at a conference. He is amazing, brilliant and very witty (spry too!). This book reflects his personality beautifully. After reading this book and seeing him in person, I feel that I am more dedicated to my path than ever.

    Highly recommended!

    Exceptional Wisdom from an Exceptional Man, October 2, 2005

    It is a rare thing to find wisdom distilled into a book, rarer still that the author walks among us. This book is more than a capstone to 70 years of Mr. Iyengar’s own yoga practice, it’s an invitation to share his experience an find out for oneself how much yoga can change, transform and enlighten the intelligence of the body, the mind and ultimately the spirit. Lucid, well-written and accessible, this is a book for seekers everywhere. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

    “Light on Life” is a thoroughly readable book by the Father of modern Yoga. I have read both “Light on Yoga” and “Light on Pranayama” and without a doubt this is the most accessable of the three books. In his earlier books, Iyengar writes as a stearn teacher with a rock solid philosophy. However, in this new book, the Master writes with a grandfatherly wisdom that neither demands nor commands. This is a gentle book by a gentle man that outlines a life based around the art and science of yoga as well as detailed instructions for overcoming challenges along the way. Iyengar writes candidly about his own struggles in life and with his own challenges in the practice of his beloved Yoga. His devotion and love for his wife and family is delightfully apparent as he describes parts of their life together. All students wherever they are on their path, will take heart that even a great master like BKS Iyengar has faced the same pitfalls as all of us.

    This may be the final published work by this treasure of a man and everyone interested in the Yoga lifestyle should own and read this book.
