"Light on Life is . . . a rumination on the metaphysics of yoga and the mystery of being alive."—The Baltimore Sun "Like his other books, Light on Life is rich in yoga philosophy and methodology. But unlike his previous writings, this new book is full of autobiographical anecdotes. . . . [A] formidable will percolates through Light on Life."—The New York Times
"Rather than present the yoga postures as he did in Light on Yoga, Mr. Iyengar reveals in Light on Life the 'heart of yoga' that he personally discovered through more than 70 years of disciplined, daily practice . . . [including] the precise ways that yoga can transform our lives and help us live in harmony with the world around us."—Yoga Journal

I am just learning about Iyengar yoga, and his writing style and content has just captivated me. I love this book and what it has to say. It feels like coming home.
