Power – Physical Strength In Yoga – Bala

A collection of philosophical thoughts and words of wisdom from Vivekachudamani. What greater fool is there than a person who, having obtained this rare human birth, together with bodily and mental strength, fail, through delusion, to realize their own highest good?
