The practice of Yoga Science is not a pill you swallow to eliminate pain or instantly gain something you want. The extent to which you work with this teaching is entirely up to you. If you are sincerely interested in becoming free from pain and bondage, and are willing to transform your own fear, anger and self-centered desires into a loving, creative and uplifting force, your life will definitely become the magnificent symphony you and the world are waiting to hear.
