Yoga is a science…

“Yoga is not a religion, remember that. Yoga is not Hindu, it is not Mohammedan. Yoga is a pure science just like mathematics, physics or chemistry. Yoga is pure science…Patanjali made religion a science; pure laws, no belief is needed. So-called religions need beliefs…Yoga has nothing as far as belief is concerned; Yoga does not say to believe in anything. Yoga says, “Experience!” Just as science says, “Experiment!” Experiment and experience are the same; their directions are different. Experiment means there is something you can do outside; experience means there is something you can do inside, experience is an inner experiment. Remember that Yoga is existential, experiential, and experimental. No belief is required, no faith is needed – only courage to experience – and that’s what it is lacking. You can believe easily because in belief you are not going to be transformed. Belief is something added to you, something superficial. Your being is not changed, you are not passing through some mutation.”
