Tapas is more than heat. It’s a purification that builds strong character, willpower, and intention. When tapas is appropriately applied, it leads to tejas(radiance), which expresses itself in courage, love, and tenderness. To create tejas through tapas, you must overcome a healthy amount of resistance. Without this process, yoga would not bear fruit.
