Yogic tip: practice, practice, practice

I teach so I can practice. I know lot of people want to teach, for various reasons -- for lucre, for halo, for pedestal, just to have something to do. But practice is all .. here is what a powerful quote explains, about yoga teachers (and practitioners) who crib they cannot practice...

" The knowers say that like a dog delighting in offal, the learned man who who does not practice also delights in external pleasures. Though always busy with Vedanta, reading and teaching it, he is no better than a mean dog."  

From the treatise Advaita Bodha Deepika
