“The cure to combat the three S’s–stress, strain and speed–can be found in the three W’s–the work of devoted practice, the wisdom that comes from understanding the self and the world and worship. Because ultimately surrendering what we cannot control allows the ego to relax and lose the anxiety of its own infinitesimally small self in the infinitude of the divine.”

B.K.S. Iyengar in “Light on Life”
