    DescriptionB.K.S. Iyengar--hailed as "the Michelangelo of yoga" (BBC) and considered by many to be the most important living yoga master--has spent much of his life introducing the modern world to the ancient practice of yoga. Yoga's popularity is soaring, but its widespread acceptance as an exercise for physical fitness and the recognition of its health benefits have not been matched by an understanding of the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development that the yogic tradition can also offer. In "Light on Life," B.K.S. Iyengar brings readers this new and more complete understanding of the yogic journey. Written with the depth of this sage's great wisdom, Light on Life is the culmination of a master's spiritual genius, a treasured companion to his seminal Light on Yoga.

    Review quote
    ""Light on Life" offers revelations from a lifetime of studying yoga."--"The Washington Post " ""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 Lif"e."--"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"
