|'The yogis of India have numerous practices for attempting to become one with the divine in themselves, their higher self. The most well-known are: hatha yoga, the control of gestures and breath; agni yoga, the work with fire in all its forms; shabda yoga, the power of the spoken word; kriya yoga, fusion with the light; karma yoga, selfless and disinterested action; bhakti yoga, sacrifice; raja yoga, self-mastery and jnana yoga, the development of the mind, knowledge. For many years now, I have been telling you about a yoga that brings these all together: surya yoga, or ‘yoga of the sun’. By practising meditation in the mornings at sunrise you make contact with fire, the light, you learn self-mastery, devotion and sacrifice, and you access true knowledge. And one day you will receive from the sun the power of the Word, the living Word. Because the sun speaks, and its speech is the life it communicates to all creatures in the universe. In practising surya yoga, you reject none of the other yogas. On the contrary, and one day you will become complete beings and live in plenitude.'
