The bow the arrow the target

“Use the body to discipline the mind and to reach the soul. Asanas, when done with the right intention, will help to transform an individual by taking the person away from an awareness of just the body toward the consciousness of the soul. Body is the bow, asana the arrow, and soul is the target.” BKS Iyengar, Light on Life, p. 62-3.
