Reading about Lives of Saints and Yogis is very inspirational and we can learn much from other’s journeys. ‘Svadhaya’ or self study is one of the Niyamas in Ashtanga Yoga. Studying about the lives of saints/yogis is part of this practice. One thing you discover is that the ‘Ultimate Truth’ can be expressed in many ways and in many forms and each person has his or her own way of manifesting the unmanifested. Find what resonates for YOU. Your expression of Life is different than anyone else on the planet. Happy exploring and may you discover the Truth of your Being.
