Book Description :

Can Yoga make you happy – what is the secret of happiness? While the practice of Yoga is now being widely embraced by the West in context with health benefits, body flexibility and as a relaxation method, in a world where most of us now have on a material level almost everything we need, the spiritual aspects and questions of quality of life, happiness and well-being are center-stage questions now. To be happy is now more valued than material riches, money and prestige, which many have but realize that they did not find happiness through them. Osho continues his presentation and analysis of the original Yoga sutras by Patanjali, Yoga: The Science of the Soul, with ten extraordinary talks addressing key issues in our lives. Such incredible teachings and lessons are hidden in these ancient scriptures. According to ordinary thinking, to be friendly with someone who is happy is very easy. The truth is it is not! In fact, it is one of the most difficult things in life. If somebody is happy, immediately you are shocked – how is it possible? How come you’re not happy and the other is? This seems like injustice. With the happy you feel jealous – in a subtle competition. You feel inferior with happy people. Or you may show your happiness, but that’s just a facade, a show, a mask. Learn about the secret and once the secret is known, once you know how one becomes happier, and how with others’ happiness you create a situation for yourself to be happy, there is no barrier; you can go as far as you like. Learn the secret of being happy with the whole universe, with every flower, river, rock and star; become one with this continuous eternal celebration. This remarkable OSHO Classic belongs in everybody’s library!

Book Description :

The first yoga text to outline a step-by-step sequence for developing a complete practice according to viniyoga--yoga adapted to the needs of the individual. • A contemporary classic by a world-renowned teacher. • This new edition adds thirty-two poems by Krishnamacharya that capture the essence of his teachings. Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who lived to be over 100 years old, was one of the greatest yogis of the modern era. Elements of Krishnamacharya's teaching have become well known around the world through the work of B. K. S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, and Indra Devi, who all studied with Krishnamacharya. Krishnamacharya's son T. K. V. Desikachar lived and studied with his father all his life and now teaches the full spectrum of Krishnamacharya's yoga. Desikachar has based his method on Krishnamacharya's fundamental concept of viniyoga, which maintains that practices must be continually adapted to the individual's changing needs to achieve the maximum therapeutic value. In The Heart of Yoga Desikachar offers a distillation of his father's system as well as his own practical approach, which he describes as "a program for the spine at every level--physical, mental, and spiritual." This is the first yoga text to outline a step-by-step sequence for developing a complete practice according to the age-old principles of yoga. Desikachar discusses all the elements of yoga--poses and counterposes, conscious breathing, meditation, and philosophy--and shows how the yoga student may develop a practice tailored to his or her current state of health, age, occupation, and lifestyle. This is a revised edition of The Heart of Yoga.

"Danna Faulds set out on a transformative journey three decades ago, not realizing that it would lead her straight into the heart of yoga and an extraordinary relationship with the man who would become her husband. It led her to Kripalu Center in its ashram heyday, where she became a disciple of Yogi Amrit Desai and began a daily writing practice. It guided her back into the world where she witnessed from afar the downfall of the guru and the disintegration of his residential community. It broadened and deepened to include self-inquiry, poetry, non-dual experience, and the capacity to stay present with difficult mind states like depression and doubt." --P. [4] of cover.

Book Description :

From the author of Inside the Yoga Sutras, comes this new and unique study guide for all who are interested in a deeper dive into the Yoga Sutras. Rev. Jaganath Carrera breaks down each of Patanjali's words so the reader can further grasp the richness and depth of meaning in each of the Sanskrit words. As each word is unpacked, new levels of understanding behind each sutra are revealed. The book also explores different topics in the Yoga Sutras in greater depth that enables the reader to be able to see connections between many of the sutras that span the entire text. Making sense of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is, at times, like following the travel directions of a giant. A giant's footprints -- huge strides that span mountaintops, rivers, lakes, and cities -- lack many important navigational cues. Without these details, we can become confused, lost, or hesitant to continue. This text attempts to fill in the gaps between these footprints, primarily through an in-depth examination of Patanjali's words -- words that point unerringly to the highest spiritual truths. In this text you will find: Word-for-word dictionary Commentary for key terms, Extensive cross-referencing Insights from sociology and psychology, mythology, Ayurveda, and various faith traditions, The influences that Buddhism and Jainism had on the Yoga Sutras Footnotes that expand and clarify key principles Inspirational quotes, Continuous translation with narration, and topic index sections, for easy referencing of basic themes. Twelve years after his publication of Inside the Yoga Sutras, Reverend Jaganath gives us the much-anticipated sequel, Inside Patanjali's Words. -Sharon Gannon, Cofounder of Jivamukti Yoga Method Pick it up, open to any page. . . see what happens. -Carrie Owerko, senior Iyengar teacher Inside Patanjali's Words is for the serious scholar, but ironically, is also for someone just setting out to study the Yoga Sutras. Each time you read it, whether in bite sizes or larger portions, settle down and uncover another golden nugget in your search for the truth. -Beryl Bender Birch, Developer and Founder of Power Yoga A ravishing and enriching contribution to the world! -Rima Ribbath, senior Jivamukti Teacher This book will give the teacher new insights into how to explain a concept or word and the student much to learn and ponder. It is a pearl except, in this case, a strand of pearls leading to One Truth. -Rev. Amba Marcie Wallace, Co-owner JaiPure Yoga

"We are created in rhythm, kept alive in rhythm, evolve through rhythm. Tides, breath, and blood flow in rhythm. We are born into a universe of currents, and our heart is the great conductor of the body, orchestrating our flow." The mystical foundations of all the world's spiritual paths meet in a single, sacred place: the heart of the seeker. We have reached a time when scientific understanding mirrors the teachings of the great wisdom traditions in revealing our energetic heart as the light of consciousness, the fire of love, a field of intelligence. Tending the Heart Fire, the first book by pioneering yogini Shiva Rea, is an invitation to embody our extraordinary potential at this turning point in time, to reconnect your life to the rhythms of your body and the natural world—to live in flow with the pulse of life. Weaving together wisdom from the great world traditions—including yoga, Ayurveda, Tantra, and modern science—Shiva presents an essential resource for becoming a firekeeper of the sacred heart. This diverse treasury is filled with mediations, life guidance, seasonal rituals, and daily practices, including: Insights for harmonizing with the sacred junctures of time—the daily, weekly, lunar, and solar cycles of manifestation and renewal Aligning with the seasons—how to adapt your diet, exercise, and yoga rhythms throughout the annual cycle Ways to honor the great sacred holidays, rites, and festivals Awakening of sahaja—the natural flow at the origins and source of yoga asana and sacred embodiment at the heart of yoga and Tantra Skills for tending your inner fire in every aspect of life and healing imbalances that can support a renewable energy lifestyle A visual teaching with over a hundred full-color images, including reference charts, diagrams, illustrations, and ancient poetry for inspiration The legacy of the Heart Fire is more than eight hundred thousand years old—and in our modern world, we need more than ever to consciously reconnect to the radiant field that transcends time, space, and culture. "The direct awakening of the heart often happens when we are at a crisis point, when the armor of our heart has to crack," writes Shiva Rea. "Let us return to the power and magnificence of our hearts—as living fire, as intelligent energy and electromagnetic radiance, and as our illuminating guide toward love, creativity, and deep knowing of our true sacred nature."

Yoga came to Tibet from India more than a thousand years ago, and it was quickly absorbed into the culture's rich traditions. In this small book readers will discover Heart Yoga, which developed over the centuries in the Gelukpa tradition of the Dalai Lamas. The program presented here combines popular yoga exercises wtih special Tibetan poses, and methods of working from the inside to give a healthy and a happy heart. Roach discovered a number of previously unknown Tibetan works on yoga in the course of his ongoing efforts to find and preserve ancient Tibetan Buddhist texts. He discusses the ideas and insights presented in these texts and places them within the context of the Buddhist tradition. To help readers incorporate this ancient wisdom in their daily lives, he provides a specific regime of yoga postures and meditations. Combining instructive illustrations with the unique philosophical underpinnings of the Buddhist approach, Geshe Roach has created a unique program for yoga on a physical and spiritual level.

Book Description :

Practitioners around the world reap the physical benefits of yoga, assuming poses and frequently calling them by their Sanskrit names. While many know that hanumanasana is named for the deity Hanuman, few understand why this is the case. Behind each asana and its corresponding movements is an ancient story about a god, sage, or sacred animal, much like Aesop’s fables or European folktales. Myths of the Asanas is the first book to collect and retell these ancient stories. The myths behind yoga’s spiritual tradition have the power to help students of all levels realize their full potential. Meditating on the tolerance of trees while standing in tree pose can help one become more tolerant. Learning how the disfigured sage Astavakra came to be the teacher of a king can liberate us from anxieties about our external appearance and our self imposed limitations. Marveling at Hanuman’s devotion to Ram can serve as a source of spiritual strength and determination. With more than sixty beautiful illustrations to frame the stories, Myths of the Asanas will add a new dimension to your practice and study of yoga.

Dating from about the third century A.D., the Yoga Sutra distills the essence of the physical and spiritual discipline of yoga into fewer than two hundred brief aphorisms. It is the core text for any study of meditative practice, revered for centuries for its brilliant analysis of mental states and of the process by which inner liberation is achieved. Yet its difficulties are legendary, and until now, no translation has made it fully accessible. This new translation, hailed by Yoga Journal for its "unsurpassed readability," is by one of the leading Sanskrit scholars of our time, whose Bhagavad Gita has become a recognized classic. It includes an introduction to the philosophy and psychology underlying the Yoga Sutra, the full text with explanatory commentary, and a glossary of key terms in Sanskrit and English.

Enhance your yoga practice with this all-new expanded edition of the ultimate guide to the stories behind the most beloved poses of all time. Many yoga practitioners explore the benefits of yoga through its poses, but did you know that the magic and mystery of yoga lie within the power of yogic mythology? Myths of the Asanas was the first book to collect and retell the ancient tales of yogic myth to a modern audience, and has since become a beloved resource for yoga practitioners and instructors the world over. This expanded edition contains nine unheard stories about some of the yoga world's most beloved poses. The myths behind yoga’s spiritual tradition have the power to help students of all levels realize their full potential.

Learning of the disabilities of the great sage Astavakra while attempting his arm-balance pose encourages us to understand how powerful we are when we recognize the strength that lies beyond any perceived limitations. Marveling at the monkey-god Hanuman’s devotion to his best friend, Ram, keeps us in alignment with our integrity during the hanumanasana splits pose as we dig deeply to discover the source of spiritual strength within ourselves.
