Overview

“One’s whole life is an obstacle course. The more obstacles you overcome, the bigger the prize. If you avoid the obstacles, then there is no prize. Without those obstacles, you would never discover your
capabilities. So instead of cursing the obstacles on your path, or the people who placed them there, try to find ways that will help you face them and overcome them. And when you do, a great joy will arise within you and you
will bless the obstacles instead of cursing them.” This quote from “Overcoming Obstacles” captures the flavor of total positive thinking with which Swami Satchidananda teaches us to approach life’s inevitable challenges and
convert all to opportunities for victory, fun, fulfillment and joy. Full of practical and priceless guidance.

Meet the Author

Sri Swami Satchidananda was one of the first Yoga masters to bring the classical Yoga tradition to the West. He taught Yoga postures, meditation, a vegetarian and more compassionate lifestyle to westerners when he
was invited to America in 1966 by the iconic pop artist Peter Max. The distinctive teachings he brought with him blend the physical discipline of Yoga, the spiritual philosophy of Vedic literature and the interfaith ideals he
pioneered. These techniques and concepts influenced a generation and a spawned Yoga culture that is flourishing today. The organization founded on his teachings, Integral Yoga International, is now a leading institute for
Yoga teacher certification. Integral Yoga is the foundation for Dr. Dean Ornish’s landmark work in reversing heart disease and Dr. Michael Lerner’s noted Commonweal Cancer Help program. Sri Swami Satchidananda is the
author of many books on Yoga and is the subject of the 2008 documentary, “Living Yoga”
