And with faith or doubt, hope or horror, the cycle draws each man and woman toward the finality of death, the waiting mystery.
The quest for happiness, for tranquillity transits through these fundamental conditions and questions. All of the world's great religions and philosophies provide solace for the jouneyer. It is the gift of Yoga to create that union of body, mind, and spirit capable of truly understanding and existing within the serentity offered by eternal truths. Whether it leads to liberation from a karmic cycle of life and death may be a matter of belief. Unquestioned is the possibility of obtaining freedom from the confusion and sorrows of the life we may be certain is at our disposal."
