Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Nasti Tapah Pranayamat Param- There is no penance greater than pranayama. Doing the pranayama correctly itself will be a penance. Tapo dvandva sahanam- You should bear the conflict. You shouldn’t be depressed in times of grief and too excited in times of happiness. This is penance. To bear the conflict is penance. You bear the heat and the cold here. It isn’t so cold or so hot in Bengaluru and Pune. The people of Pune don’t have to bear so much. This side, you have to perform more penance. See, I said this and the sky is cloudy now. The entire nature is my friend. I have entered into a deal with it!
